Second card post

This card was made with  8 1/2 by 11 lt. teal cardstock from Wal mart, scored in half, but the rest of the papers are  DCWV.I apologize if the quality of the pictures are not that good,I am not a photographer.  I will take any tips.:)    DCWV Mainstream Stack and I believe Mariposa stacks are what I used..  Of course a little bling, a lace doily, and  not sure on the cut sizes on flowers and mats but they came from Cricut Georges basic shapes.  Thinking of you stamp from Dollar bin at Michaels. 3 assorted colored buttons to match and beaded ribbon from Wal mart.  Hope you like the card.  I loved the papers, they had a velvet feel to it. I would have been more specific on sizes, but I didn't write it down and sold the card before I uploaded from my camera.

First Card Finally

Here is a card I made.  ( keep in mind I am new at doing this, hehe)  This card was made with DCWV  The Sweet stack .  I also used Cricut Georges basic Shapes to make the flowers cut at 2 1/2" , 2" .1 1/2" , 1 1/4" and 1" from asst'd  solid color paper from Wal Mart and DCWV.  I also put a doily as a base to the octagon shape from GBS cartridge cut at 2, 2 1/2 and 3".  I cut a strip of white card stock and used Martha Stewart punch  Doily lace.  I added 3 buttons on the bottom and a Center button (can not remember where I got it) that says..." Thinking of you makes me smile"   Inside the card is blank.  Thanks for any critiques.  have a great day.    PHEW!!!  I did it:.

Special day

I am hopefully going to post my first card sometime today here in blog land.  Been a long time coming.  New to this bloggy thing and uploading. Today I am celebrating 31 years married to the same man!! Lucky me.
