A 'Virtual' Community Project

I finally had a couple of minutes to upload this
gigantic greeting card that I made for my
mom's 70th birthday.

She loves greens and peaches and
garden-themed things, so I thought this
DCWV 'Mariposa Collection' was
just right for her special greeting.

Along with the Prima 'bling' I added
extra sparkle with 'diamond' Stickles.
Then I sewed a 'binding' to 
hold it all together.

There were so many of you who had a
hand in this card and I want to thank you
for sharing your thoughts and
well-wishes with her.
 There were 5 very full pages!
To accommodate all the messages,
I formatted it in 8.5 x 11.

I used Papertrey Ink's 'Dot Spots'
 and butterflies from Sandylion
to add color to the inside pages.

Suffice to say, she was stunned and thrilled to read
all of your sweet greetings and.....
I think she liked the card a little too.  : )
