My daughter was checking out my "card's I like" file the other day when she realized her good friend's anniversary had come and gone. She was very unhappy with herself! She came across a card picture I had saved from my very first "favorite" scrapbook store, Paradise Scrapbook Boutique in Chico, CA. She was oohing and aahing over this card, so I told her I would make one similar to it if she wanted to send it off to her friend in Colorado. She was thrilled, and even offered to pay me for it, which of course, I said, "NO...it just gives me an excuse to make another card"! I had also admired this very same card while visiting the store on one of my trips south where it was on display; therefore, during my shopping spree, I purchased many of the same embellishments for my own stash.
Here is my take on PSB's card, which is very similar to their original design, except I enlarged it from its original size and changed its shape to almost a square. I also added a few more mat layers than the original. My daughter was very happy with the results, plus the "Belated Anniversary Wishes" and embellishments on the inside.
