Your Special Day

Hello!  Hope you're having a good weekend in spite of the cold, flu and well, other news. 

It's time to jump in at the very end of the challenge with Papertrey Ink with today's card. 
I've been wanting to make a feminine card with all the things I love: flowers, soft pastels, ribbon, lots of layers and vellum. Sequins! Yes, don't forget sequins! 

I was inspired by this gorgeous card from the amazing Melissa Philips. 

Searching for soft subtle patterns, I used DSP from my stash (Authentique). I stamped flowers from the Vintage Linen set using inks in Autumn Rose and Lavender Moon, adding details with a white gel pen and a shimmer pen. I wanted the stem and leaves to blend in, so I colored them a pale gray with Copics. Like Melissa, I chose a scalloped die cut border, a vellum tag embellished with a ribbon bow  
and... you got it!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.
