Happily Ever After-Lawn Fawn Card (a sort of one layer card)

Hey y'all!

I have been busy, busy lately....I really need to slow down a little. Get back to blogging and share what I've been up to. One tiny thing I have been into is getting ready for a wedding! One of my girlfriends is getting married and it's officially the time-showers, bachelorette parties.....it's a rough life ; ) 

I wanted to share a card I made for her shower gift. I got my inspiration from the current challenge over at Lawnscaping Challenges #63: a one layer card. OK, so maybe 'make a one layer card' is not a real inspirational launching pad, right? But a funny thing happened. I had this idea to do a fairy tale, animation style love card. It's like this image that's been floating around in my head for a while. I actually made 2 one layer cards before this one, and they both were....ahem...kind of lame. I went back to the fairy tale idea and came up with the design below.  I loved it! the white background, pops of bright colors, flowers floating in the air and a banner proclaiming that the couple will live happily ever after. I heard birds chirping and music playing....then....I spilled iced coffee on the back. Ahem. Instead of starting from scratch I cut the front off and mounted it on a white base, so it's almost  one layer card. Forgive me? OK, thanks.

 

I'm seriously in love with this look, it's kind of the perfect marriage of fun/bright with graphic and modern, at least to me.
