Happy Monday!!! Today I wanted to share with you a very special card I made for a dear friend. My son became friends with a young girl during his freshman year of high school and I was happy to meet her and realize what an adorable young lady she is. I later met her mother whom I became instant friends with. She too is a remarkable lady. She had been a stay-at-home-mom due to health issues. Recently, she was having chest pains and decided to head to the emergency room just to be safe. As it turns out, she was immediately admitted and told she had to have FIVE bypasses done! FIVE!!!! Today, I'm happy to say she is indeed "celebrating life". This adorable Darling Marci image from LaLa Land Crafts is such a close match of how she looks I couldn't resist doing a card for her. BUT... not just any card. I wanted something special... something that looks classy (like her) and something that shines (like her) and represents what celebrating is all about!
My card uses both Retro Silver Lustre card stock and the Black from the Laser Lustre Pack. It's kind of hard to see in the above picture so here's a close up. I LOVE LOVE the contrast and richness of both card stocks!!
For even more bling, I added a fabulous new find of mine over on MarkerPOP!... these wonderful Pebbles Candy Dots which I added to the center of my bow!! OMGosh I am soooo in love with these and they come in many yummy colors as well!!! I know the clear are on back-order, but trust me... they are sooo worth the wait!!
Trust me, this picture does not even begin to give these fabulous sparklies justice!! They really REALLY sparkle!!!
These are some of my FAVORITE papers for that perfect wedding card or "black-tie" event. It just speaks volumes of class and sophistication!! Give it a try next time you want the perfect richness for the perfect person!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! *HUGS*
