♥ Celebrate....good times ♥ 2S4Y

Here is a card I made for this week's awesome sketch over at the 2Sketches4You blog. I used a Maya Road Kraft envelope over a piece of OA (Woolsworth) paper. It is then covered in some ribbon trim, half of a white doily, Prima flower, handmade stick pin, Zva Creative gem swirls, punched MS butterfly, hemp cord, Melissa Frances rub-ons and a Sparkler button by Webster's Pages. Since the card front is so heavy, the base of the card is made out of a lightweight cardboard. Looks like Kraft cardstock, but more durable and sturdier for this card.
Here is the sketch:
Sorry for another quick post. I am off to the doctors today for the yucky Glucose screening (hate drinking that stuff!) and to pick out a date for my C-section during the last week or so of August! I can't wait to meet our new little addition to our family! I had another ultrasound yesterday and he looks perfect. Here is a pic of him sucking on his toes!! hehe Sorry it is not clearer.
Have a wonderful day!
