Don't Cry Because It's Over . . .

I am sharing with you today a card I made for a co-worker who left last week to get married and move to New Zealand for a year -- how exciting!

Here are the details:

Size:  5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
Card stock:  Recollections, Bazzill and American Crafts
Patterned papers:  Recollections
Hearts:  Martha Stewart punch
Roses:  Recollections
Crocheted Rosette:  Recollections
Scalloped circles (in background):  The circles were cut using the Cricut George cartridge.  The scalloped circles are from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.  I think they were cut at 3 1/4 and 3 1/2".
Labels:  Nestabilities
Sentiment:  Computer generated.  I then used a Cat Eye chalk to give the edges definition
Pearls:  Queen & Co.
Border Punch:  Martha Stewart (the green ones that Wal-Mart sold)
Inside sentiment:  "Smile Because It Happened."

Thanks for looking, and if you leave a comment, you'll be my new best friend!  LOL.
