Card no. 53 - Happy accidents happen ...

So this card was supposed to be just a regular, normal sized card ... little did I know, that sleep deprivation and poor concentration can cause taking a different path - not worse necessarily :)

OK, I originally wanted to be 5 1/4*5 1/4 card and I don't even remember the measurements but I think it is 4 3/4 x 1/2 x 5 1/4 (WxDxL). I added a little pouch for a bookmark that I magically thought of - I think I might switch it for a gift card & chocolate and send it to my fantastic friend Lily for her upcoming birthday :)

The image is from SugarNellie, colored with the brand new distress inks (bundled sage & tumbled glass), ProMarkers & ShinHan Markers. Papers are DCWV (Mediterranean Collection with combination of Linen Closet Collection). I used MS's Lace Border Punch and the Branch Punch to add few little branches to the Flowers, which are from Prima and I added a little stems inside them that I found at a local hideaway treasure chest (Impressive Ideas). I added a little ribbon (American Crafts) to tie the sides together. The bookmark was super easy to make - just cut out the edges, punched out little circle, using Cricut I cut out letter spelling "Spring" and using MS punch I added a little heart & ribbon. Done :) Quick & easy - didn't take me a whole week to make - perfect! Getting better over here ... he he he ... time-wise, anyways.

I hope ya'll have a fantastic weekend planned ahead, fingers crossed for a lovely weather. I think Atlanta should be renamed "the new Seattle" - it just keeps pouring and pouring .... bleeee....

Anyhoo, enjoy and don't forget to leave me a comment so I can visit your blog too.
