New Year's day was such a busy day for me. From Church early morning followed by a Wedding of a friend, then Reception and then another friend's New Year's Party...I was running on Holy Spirit fuel for sure to last that day. But as mentioned, I had to make a card for a friend's wedding. I usually take a lot of time to make a card but I know I can't so, I made this up as I go. Got an A7 card and attached a DP from my scrap paper stash. I thought an elegant Wedding card must have some sort of embossing so, I sure did with my Cuttlebug. I stamped this funny image (this is the second time I used it in a card) on a panel I die-cut with my Nesties. I also got some of my nice lace to add dimension to this project. I thought that's all I would do but was struggling with the spaces that seemed so bare. That's when I got some of those off-white Brides flowers, attached some red gems in the center of each and attached them with foam dots. To finish it all up, I punched six leaves using MS Punch to complete the front of this card. Inside, I had to get a sentiment from a book called "Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Card". Since the couple is tying the knot with the blessings of the Body of Christ, I added the phrase "Let Jesus drive!" at the end of the sentiment and walah, I was done...Still, it took me more than 2 hours to complete...LOL But for me, that is as quick and elegant as it can be. I also emboss the flap of the envelope to coordinate it with my card and it was good. Anyway, hope you like it too.

I didn't get a chance to see the couple opened their gift and see their card but I hope they would appreciate the design and message of this card. So, what kept you all busy last holiday season? Having the right perspective on celebrating those moments sure makes a difference. I am inspired by the love of the Lord Jesus Christ and that's what gives meaning to all my work and projects. Hope to hear from y'all...
