Happy Friday!

This week has really flown by for me!  Can't say that I have accomplished much, but the weekend is just about upon me and I am VERY excited to be going to my cousin's wedding tomorrow!!

Congratulations Heather and Dan!

I have no doubt that they won't see this ahead of time, or I surely wouldn't post it!

My card uses a set from Deedee's Digis called For the Happy Couple.  I used a different "Congratulations" than is included in this wonderful set so that I could personalize with their names in the same type set.  I mixed and matched various cream and gold papers to give this card lots of texture.  I colored just the flowers on the cake in shades of pink (Heather's choice for bridesmaids dresses) and used some gold paint from Stampin' Up to kind of dull the cream card stock on the front.  Huggz to kadie for giving me the idea to doodle a bit above and below our greeting~  I think it just makes the card that much more personal for my wonderful cousin!

Before you go, here are a couple more pictures of this card:

Thanks for stopping by~
