Sweet & Simple

It's been a long time since I've made a card without coloring something so if you can believe it, this was a challenge!  LOL!  My SIL is 36 yrs old and never really been by herself and running her own life.  She's had a hard time getting her start but has now found a path she wants to take and is going away to school to become a counselor.  So I've made this cute little card for her and wish her the best!

My favorite part is that flower.  I made it using my Silhouette and plan on making a few more of them. 


I'm going to enter the card in Fab 'n Funky Challenges - Go Mad With Embossing.  It's been a long long time since I've embossed and I don't know why because it has such a pretty effect.
