A Wedding Card

I am really loving simple cards lately and this was so easy to make. I cuttlebugged a piece of Stampers Select White paper with the textile embossing folder. I then wrapped my organza ribbon around it and tied a bow. I adhered that layer to the card base made out of the same cardstock. I added some beads to a corsage pin and then added the love charm with a jump ring. I glued a bead onto the bottom of the pin after snipping off the end with wire cutters. I just love the way it turned out!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. It is raining here again. We seem to get these little teases of beautiful sunny days and then it's back to the rain. I guess I shouldn't complain since we need the rain to make all the beauty bloom. I just really wanted to cook on the grill tonight. I was planning on grilling teriyaki chicken breasts with grilled pineapple. My kids absolutely LOVE grilled pineapple and have been talking about how they can't wait for me to make it again. Looks like they will have to wait a little while longer. Maybe someday I will have a covered patio, then I would be grilling all year around. I would so love that!

Have a blessed day!

Supplies
Paper-Stampers Select White (Papertrey)
