Re-visiting one of my cards... (:

Good morning, my beautiful friends!!!

It's another gorgeous day here in New York and my smile is my best accessory!!! :D  Hope your Monday is off to a good start! (:

Remember THIS soft blue Parisian card I created over a year ago?!  That card has forever been my favorite... One, because I'm an anything Paris related freak and two, because I was so proud of how that card turned out.  Well, one of the ladies I babysit for fell in love with that card also.  Last week, she asked me if I would sell her that card to send to her brother (who also happens to love everything Paris related), to which I sadly had to tell her it had already been sold (to the lucky Jaime Jorge! lol).  Well, I of course told her I would gladly make her another card just like that one... Except, yesterday I made this one a little different... And you know what?!  I LOVE this one even more than the original!!!!! :D

So, I now present to you my new MOST favorite card!!!!!!! *grin*


If you compare this card to the first one, you'll notice I left out the two smaller buttons at the bottom and made the pleating a little different.  Also, the dry embossed vellum is of bubble wrap, not flowers.  Plus, the sentiment is now for a birthday, not "sending love"... (:  I think this one turned out MUCH more beautiful and sophisticated than the first one!! (:  I'm SO smitten with this card!!!!

Anyway, I'm also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamp "Anything Goes" challenge.  This is my second card in this challenge.  You have two more days to link your work to the blog, if you are interested in playing along!  (:

I must go, but I wanted to wish you all a bright and delightful day!!  May GOD richly bless! Xoxo

Love,

Grisel
