A couple of my friends are getting married this month, so of course, it was time to get out the card-making box. (Not to mention that Mothers' Day is on the horizon, and other friends are expecting babies and birthdays!)
I picked out a simple cream card for the base, and cut a strip of backing paper that I felt went well with it, with a lilac flower design.
The little flower in the bottom left is a satin fabric flower which I bought to decorate my veil for my wedding, in 2008. I had a few left over! I glued a tiny diamante stud in the middle for a bit of extra sparkle. It seemed to fit perfectly between the leaves of the backing paper.
The gold corners were in my big box of stickers; I had to go and buy a sheet of 'Congratulations' messages, but so many of my friends are approaching major milestones, I'm sure I won't have any trouble using them up!
The whole thing took only a few minutes to make, but it came out exactly as I was hoping.
