You Make Life Wonderful

Out of the two of us, my husband is the romantic one.  When I was pregnant with our first daughter he gave me a corsage on Mother's Day that had a rose (for me) and a little bud (for the one to come).  When I was pregnant with our second daughter the corsage had a large rose, a smaller one, and a bud.  To my shock and horror, the little bud got knocked off while pinning it on!!  Thankfully I am not superstitious, but I was hormonal so you can imagine the scene!  Anyway, here's my go at a romantic card:




This card is inspired by the following challenges:

Thanks for coming over for a visit!  I hope you have a great day!

  4. I said a little out-loud "AH!" when I saw this dear card. Romantic is not a style I can do, but you have handled it with such skill and tenderness. Love your coloring and the embellies are perfect.
