Especially for You

Morning my crafting friends, Sunday already, these weekends go by far too quickly lol! I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and I know its not quite over yet!!! 

May I welcome Tracy, thank you so much for coming over to my corner and commenting on my post, I do hope you come again. 
Ang thank you for the constant giggles you give me every time you leave a comment, I loved your last one and I must say I agree with you, I sat here at the computer giggling away for quite some time lol! You bring sunshine into my life.

Now todays post was another little quicky card I made, I am finding I'm doing more of these as I have somewhat lost my organization of time lately, it may have something to do with spending too much time on the computer, Five hours yesterday when I should have been crafting, shame on me!!!

I had this paper that I downloaded from Crafters Companion, I loved the pattern on it. 
To start I cut a piece of Centura Pearl Pastel card and matted it up with some dotted patterned paper, then using some satin card I embossed the bottom and matted this onto my card. With my paper I shaped the bottom edge with a curved die. Using more of the dotted patterned paper I die cut a boarder and die cut the tag twice, I wrapped the boarder strip round the paper, with the tags I stamped my sentiment then attached them in opposite directions on top of the card.

I added a paper bow at the bottom, decorated the inside of the card and there is the finished card.
