Happy Anniversary!

Time for another beautiful challenge at The Shabby Tea Room!
Here is the inspiration photo we were to follow...
And a close up view...

Hi there!

How's it going for ya?  Just another cloudy rainy day here in NW Ohio.  I had to chuckle when at work yesterday people are in complaining of their aches and pains.  And, they were saying I don't know why I'm having extra aches and pains.  So, I replied, we'll just have to blame it on the weather!:-)  Anyway, if you're in one of those sun shiny states, please send the sun this way!  We really do miss it!

Ok, on to my card now.  I stayed up late last night working on this card.  But, it went together fairly quickly.  I love working with cream, pink, and white, so this was right up my alley.  I used a new Martha Stewart punch.  Just love those tiny little butterflies!  I had fun adding the gems.  I'm thinking I should buy stock in those gems!:-)  Added ribbon, button, twine, and sewing to finish off my card.  I thank you for stopping by today!  Take care and enjoy your day, hugs!!:-))

  1. Filled to the brim with a feminine and elegant look. I love how you layered the center piece; you really have outdone yourself. Wow!
    We have chilly days too and there is some frost coming this way. I am looking forward to spring too :)
    Have a lovely day!

  2. Hey Maria! I too love the layered center pieces and that beautiful silver doily! Beautiful embellishments and stitching! It's been very gloomy and rainy here in NY also...:(
    I can't send any sunshine...hooe a hug will do!

  3. Simply beautiful, Maria. Love the different layers and embellishments on the focal point. That background that is stitched is FAB

  4. This is just stunning Maria, love all the shabby chicness, and the silver doily has the WOW factor! Gorgeous!

  5. Maria, this is absolutely beautiful. I love the colors and your bling looks super. You couldn't have used a prettier doily.

    We sure have had lot of rain here so I can't send any sunshine. Although, I think we may have some this weekend. But, I'm keeping it. LOL

  6. Wow! What a stunning card! So beautiful!

    Thank you very much for joining us this week at The Shabby Tea Room!


  7. Maria, this card is so pretty. I love all the silver and sparkle, and that bow is so delicate, I first thought it was feathers. ~Hugs, Cheryl

  8. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!!! I love it!
