I am also submitting this to Addicted to CAS Challenge #38 Off the Edge!


Don't forget to head over to the colourQ and see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you!

Ben came home this weekend to cut the lawn for me but also because it was Victoria Day weekend or as Canadians like to call it the May 2-4 wekend!  He left Monday morning to go pick his girlfriend up at the airport who was flying in from a week in Norway participating in the Bergen International Wood Festival. He left with a bouquet of flowers for her. Yup--I think I did good! LOL

Fabulous card. Love how you used the colors and those fun stars. Looks like you really did raise Ben right--now, teach him how to order stamps on line, and you can relax, knowing you did the best you could to make him an excellent husband.

Awesome, awesome design. I love the layered stars and the rounded corner is sniff touch.

Kelly Griglione said...

Wait, did Ben grab one of your tags to attach to the flowers?! Hopefully he takes advantage of his Mama's stash now and then : ) Love your inlaid stars bleeding off the edge of your card, and how you have part of the sentiment there!
