Variation on a theme

A week ago I posted a photo of one of the cards that I made as part of the training kit that I had received.  I liked the card so much that I decided to CASe it and make something similar for my sister-in-law's birthday. If you are interested in seeing the original card please click on this link - Spring/Summer Sneak Peak.

I changed out a few things but essentially it is the same basic card.

This time around, I mounted the Soft Suede card stock onto a Naturals Ivory card base. Changed out the greeting and also added some basic pearls. The other thing was that I used up the last Very Vanilla doily from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlit. I used the other two smaller ones on the card I made for the recent challenges that I entered (please scroll down to see the previous post if you are interested).

The Stampin' Up! supplies used are

Stamp set : Madison Avenue*, Bloomin' Marvelous* and Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card stock : Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede

I gave Mandy the card yesterday and she loved it, thank goodness. She comes from Zimbabwe and they don't tend to send cards there so she loves any cards that she does receive.
