Hello everyone today i'm going to share a card with you that I created for my little sister.  It's been a tough week here as she and her husband have moved to Texas!  I'm sad to see her go, but so very proud of her.  I now have a new place to vacation to :)

Here is the card that will be making its way to Texas.

On this card I used the new Memorabilia collection.  I simply love this line, and the colors are amazing!  I started with the base of the card being 4 1/4" x 6".  I cut the blue pattern paper (the back side of the "frames" paper) to 4" x 5 3/4".  Pop that up on the card base, then adhere the the Quartrefott paper cut to 3 3/4" x 5 1/2" center on the lbue paper.

You can embellish the card with the border strips ( i used the blingy gold scallop one) across the upper part of the card.  I cut a strip of paper and made a little banner piece to go over the gold border.  Then it was time to embellish.  You can see that I used the rockin' smile brad....have you seen these???  I mean really they are gold not silver...AMAZING!!  I also cut a few little banner pieces from the "Labels" sheet and placed those in the upper right corner.  Tied a little bow using Twinery Twine and embellished that with one of the buttons and enamel dots.  Here are a couple of close up pics for you.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the corsage pins with this line.  I just added a few of the sequins onto the pin before sticking it in the foam pop dot behind the banner.

Supplies Used:
TC - Memorabilia collection
Xyron  - TC Adhesive Kit
The Twinery Twine - Solid Charcoal
Ranger - Distress Ink (walnut stain)

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, have a fabulous day!
