365 Cards: Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl!

Ok, before we start today, I just wanted to say that I had an old friend comment on my post yesterday but I don't know how to get ahold of you! ANGIE... If you are reading this, EMAIL ME!! (link below my pic) so I can contact you!!! It's been ages. What a wonderful surprise!

Ok onto the card. And can I just say that I finished this card and then realized it didn't quite fit the challenge.... oops. I was so excited to find a journaling card with LOVE on it and whipped up this pretty card (well, I think it's pretty) only to realize this is NOT a card you would give to someone at a wedding. Unless you were professing your love for either the bride or groom, both of which would be bad bad bad on someone else's wedding day! Anyway. Enough chatter. Here is my card:
Now I do think this is the kind of card you would give to someone on say, and anniversary... right? Ok, so as you can see I fudged just a bit, but it is still done and fits about half of the criteria ; ) Onto the details.... I used the journaling card from Honey Pie and it miraculously fit the colors from the Dutch Girl Line (both cosmo cricket). I trimmed out one of their lined papers and scored it every 1/2 inch. Gathered it up a bit to make a nice lace ruffle and adhered with glue dots. You can see more detail here:
I added the chipboard heart, bow and button and it was done! I really like how it turned out. I will not be using this for my brothers wedding this summer (it's not his colors!) but I will be making those soon and hope to show you. Its coming quick so I really better get started. 

Ok, how is your saturday going?? Let me know what you are up to. I hope its good weather where you are! Have a great day!

Never mind Kristie my card just has the word LOVE on it, and I thought the same thing it looks as if I am professing my love for either the bride or groom lol. I love your card btw. . . nice job!!

You crack me up! :) It could totally be a wedding card if it's bride or groom giving it to their own bride or groom! Love the layout you used.
