A New Beginning...

Good Morning! I have a special card to share with you today..I made it for a "Dork Sister" who I met over on Splitcoast Stampers, who is getting married. Vikki Jo Erickson will be marrying her long-time boyfriend, Clint and I wanted to make them a wedding card that featured a flower, as Vikki Jo loves to garden and be outside. Vikki Jo & Clint, CONGRATULATIONS and BEST WISHES on your upcoming marriage...may God bless you both!!

This card is also a Clearly Delightful Monthly Challenge card featuring one of Doodle Pantry's new images "Pasque Flower". Now Pasque Flowers are different shades of purple and when I colored the image, it really was more purple, but after a little photo editing, I managed to mess that up! LOL Anyway...I hope that you will join us in the Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge #7 as Laurie Wilson has some very very nice blog candy to give away!  The theme is PEARLS, BLING AND BUTTON THINGS - (Use one or all three, show us these embellishings!). Don't forget! You receive a FREE DOODLE PANTRY DIGI IMAGE just for participating in the challenge and you have until July 19th to submit your challenge entry.

Below is a photo of the interior of the card, made with coordinating papers and design.
