Never Too Busy for a Card

  Another week is almost over and I'm still struggling with getting things done. Our weather has turned hot and humid and I think it's sapping all my strength (and will).
  But, I do have a card to share with you. It was for very dear friends who recently renewed their wedding vows. These were their colors and I like the way the card came together. I hope they did also.
  I borrowed the "Congrats" die from another friend (that's the only way we can afford what we all want...we each buy a few things and share them with each other). The "Wedding Cake" digital image is, unfortunately, a retired digi by Birdie Brown (the link to her website is in the sidebar).
  I half-cut the oval scallop with a Spellbinders die out of the yellow cardstock, then die-cut the same half oval out of white cardstock and ran that through an embossing folder.

  I colored the Wedding Cake using Copics, then added some sparkle to the frosting with glitter. I die-cut a teal oval to frame the design. After fussy-cutting the cake, I popped it up with dimensionals.
