I don't know who it was I heard on the radio recently saying that this August was going to be the hottest on record but they got that wrong. It's actually been more like the coldest!
Despite the inclement weather, August is the month when a middle-aged woman's thoughts turn to weddings or at least to making wedding cards. I was playing around recently with some bits and pieces from my crafty "stash" and this card is what I came up with. It's intended for a wedding but you could use it for any special occasion.
I can't remember now which of my many My Craft Studio CDs the floral digi-stamp and the muted lilac background paper came from but they combine well together and caught my eye as I was looking through my huge folder of digital craft papers. The ribbon across the corner seems to give the card that luxurious "chocolate box" feel and although I was a bit dubious about the pink bows with the purple ribbon, I think it's worked. The sentiment "Wishing you the best day ever" is a Hunkydory one and I added the die-cut silver butterflies as an afterthought.
If you like this card, it's available to buy now from the Melissa Lawrence Designs online shop. Just click the link and it should take you straight to it.
Enjoy what's left of the bank holiday and don't get too cold/wet!
