Always and Forever

Welcome Back friends,
Since it's the first Tuesday of the month, it's time for my regular monthly post for Craft-Dee BowZ. Yesterday I mentioned that the theme for June is wedding and here is another card creation I came up with.

I originally had a totally different look in mind but as I worked on it, it just didn't come together as I had envisioned. Have you ever had that problem?  I have part of that project done and now as I am writing this post I think I have come up with a better idea, at least better than what I had startedout doing. It's still in the wedding theme. I will share it as soon as I finish it.  OK back to this card.........................................

Hearts, swirls, lace and ribbons as well as creamy shimmery card stock and a designer paper from DCWV - The Luxury Stack. These are the elements I used to make this card.

The cream and celery colored card stock are so light it is hard to get any good shots of this card.
