Wedding Shower card

The challenge at 365 cards posted Thursday was called 'Front, Back, and everything inbetween.' The idea was you had to create a card making sure to decorate the inside, the outside and the back. Even if it was just a little embellishing...SOMETHING had to be on each side. This is the card I created for my cousin-to-be's wedding shower this Sunday. I used lyrics from their wedding song so that it can be a special keepsake for her later :) I have never decorated anything but the front of the card unless it was a fancy fold card so this was new to me, but I did add some designer paper and solid cardstock to the inside to 'fancy' it up a bit and a 'with love' stamp on the back.

The challenge this week at Fab 'n' Funky Challenges is to dig deep and use some of your neglected stash. Well every single bit of this card came from my own stash. The primas and ribbon can't really be called neglected though, since I put them in 75% of my creations. So I went digging REALLY REALLY DEEP and found a ziplock of 6x6 designer papers that I had received in a swap and decided that since they were at least a year old and I'd not used one single piece....now was the time. All of the papers were so pretty I just couldn't bare to use one. I totally think my new cousin-in-law is worth this gorgeous paper....so I dug it out and....**GULP**....cut it!
