Life is Beautiful!

Happy Friday!  Popping in to share a really simple and fast card. I think it is perfect for a wedding or anniversary!

I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  I am playing with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge, SSS Work It Wednesday Challenge, and Double D Challenge.

Today's card focuses on playing with papers and an ephemera tag.  I did not use any stamps to make this card.  It was really super fast to make.  I started with some select white card stock.  I am using Carta Bella Botanical Garden pattern paper pack.  I die cut the small floral and leaf pattern with a rectangle stitched frame and used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to add it to a top folding select white card stock base.  

I chose to layer at the bottom of the card the green leafy pattern with the soft pink stripe.  I only wanted a touch of the soft pink stripe to show.    I added one of Carta Bella's Botanical Gardens Ephemera Frames and Tags to the top using some foam tape to pop it up for added dimension.  I think this sentiment works perfectly as a wedding/anniversary card!

I added some medium pink embroidery floss to the top of the tag.  I finished my card with a few Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins!
Here is a list of many of the products I generally
 use every time I make a card.
