Love That Binds Card

Hi everyone! This is Elizabeth from 217 Creations. Thank you Pam for having me over to play today. My mom's birthday was last week and of course I made her a card.  I wanted something feminine and trendy.  I chose to use a paper line from Authentique called Blissful.  I love this paper company! The paper is high quality and the patterns are so versatile.  They sell most collections in both 6 by 6 and 12 by 12.  I used a 12 by 12 stack that I bought at Hobby Lobby.
The card base is 5 by 7.  I stitched several layers together with a sewing machine. I then cut a lacy border from Heartfelt Creations Spellbinders with my Vagabond. Using spray adhesive, I attached the border to the card.
I then used Chipboard pieces from Close to My Heart Artiste bundle. I cut a banner from Cricut cartridge Artiste at .75 inches. I then inked the edges with Close to My Heart Cocoa ink.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design "Material Girl" and is stamped in Cocoa as well from CTMH. I love these chipboard pieces.  They save so much time and add depth without being bulky.
Finally I used some Recollections flowers from my stash to add dimension.  I adhered the flowers with hot glue. I also added some flat back pearls as well.
I love the colors of this card.  So fun and cheery! Perfect for a birthday!  As always thank you for taking the time to comment and follow both here at the Bug Bytes and on my personal blog at 217 Creations.  It means so much to me!
