Holiday Cakes Card #2

The cartridge I’m exploring this month is Holiday Cakes.  You should definitely check out this cartridge – The cuts are great for cards.  I also love the swirly, girly font!  I have an addiction to fonts.  I have several hundred on my thumb drive and some CD’s.  I think pretty letters make anything look better!  I don’t like things that are boring.  =)  Gotta have some excitement….even if it’s just on a Word document! 

I made this card to send to a lady that’s battling illness. I wanted the card to be soft and feminine, so I chose some paper from my stash by K & Company.  I love their paper – Especially the fact that it’s double sided.  The base is cream cardstock by Recollections and the wreath is Bazzill cardstock.  I used a rectangle and a square (from the same cart) to make the mat with the window.  I truly hope this card helps brighten the day of a lady that’s having a rough time right now.  That’s why I love making cards.  I find it so rewarding to be able to bless someone and let them know you’re thinking about them. 

This camera I have is on my nerves.  The paper is actually several shades of soft sage green and the flowers are light lilac and plum.  Doesn’t even look like that in the pic, does it????  UGH!  I need a new camera but gotta get the cashola first!  This one doesn’t show my colors accurately no matter how I light the card or what setting I seem to use.  Ok – enough griping.  Here’s my card…
