It's the Thought Bridal Shower Card

I needed a bridal shower card but didn't really have any wedding sets that weren't retired and I wasn't sure how I was going to make "something else" work. I had wanted to get this "It's the Thougth" set because of the cute turtle and crab. Actually I thought I could play with all of them using this card layout. Well, all of them except for the giraffe. He's just too tall for that layout. Maybe I could work him into an oval layout?? I'll have to give that a try and see if I can make it work.
I used the little wedding cake and under the image it reads "happy for you." Just perfect for what I needed. Too bad I didn't get it done earlier in the week so the card wouldn't have been late!!! Late is a familiar thing for me lately!! UGH! Just too much going on in my life right now. I need to get caught up on a few projects so I can have time to compose a thought!! LOL
This beautiful decorative paper is from one of the fun "Patterned Stacks". This one is the Soft Subtles pack. I LOVE all the designs in it and I want to get a package in every color group!!! These pages are 12" x 12" and there are 40 double sided sheets per pack. Plus they are cost effective too purchasing them like this.
I really like making cards using this layout. I get to use the smaller images I have in such a way that they become the focal part of the card and somehow just don't seem so small anymore. Also with this layout the ribbon could be moved higher or lower and layered wording could added. This makes the design a bit more versatile too! I usually make them like you see. It's one of my favorite card layouts!
