January Blog Hop and Start to Finish Week

 

Well it is my first blog hop EVER!!
Nichole gave us a challenge to embellish the interior of our cards.  Pay them some special attention, just like we do for the fronts.  I have to admit, if I rounded the corners on the inside cardstock I thought it was some special attention. LOL
I worked on this awhile, trying to get it nice but not overdo it.
I recently needed a wedding card and discovered I didn't have one.  Oh the horror!!!  Knowing I was sending one out I decided to make two while I had everything on my desk and all the dimensions fresh in my head.  I didn't buy the Wishing You stamp set the month it was previewed and boy did I LONG for that set.  Finally the stars aligned and I was able to purchase it.  The sentiment on the front says: Wishing you a happily ever after!  Its not too noticable here but in RL looks wonderful with the new ink.

Front of the card and front of envelope.



Lined envelope and inside of card.  I glittered the butterfly trail and added pearls which I don't think you can see at this dimension.



Supplies:
Cardstock: Lemon Tart, Rustic Cream and Aqua Mist(Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Bitty Dots, Dark Chocolate(Papertrey Ink)
Stamp: Wishing You(Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Aqua Mist, Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon: Lemon Tart(Papertrey Ink)
Other: Rhinestones and Pearls-KaiserCraft, inside sentiment computer generated
Rustic Cream Envelope(Papertrey Ink)
