My Very First Post!!! Bridal Shower Card

I'm so excited to post my very first card!  Well not my first card that I have made but my first card to go on my very own blog.  I have been hopping around on so many talented crafty blogs out there that I am just a tad nervous about posting on my own.  Alright, here we go.....

This card is for my soon-to-be sister-in-law!  We are so excited that she will soon be part of the family!!  Her favorite color is green and I wanted to incorporate it into the card.  I went into Halmark to use up a rewards certificate and found really really pretty green and purple wrapping paper.  Which I thought would be perfect to wrap her bridal shower gift in.  It had her favorite color as well as mine!  So I thought to do a card that was going to match the wrapping paper that I picked up!  I used the umbrella from the Cricut's Sweethart cartridge since we will be showering her with love!

Card: 4.25 x 5.5 inches
Polk-a-dot layer: 4 x 5.25 inches
Solid light green layer: 4 x 2 inches
Umbrella & Hearts cut from Cricut Sweethearts cartridge
Best Wishes stamped from My Pink Stamper Everyday Life Set
