Best Wishes!

Good evening everybody, 

Its been a busy day for me. I have been driving around the whole day for one appointment after another, one class after another. I am exhausted and I thought to my self while driving back home, what if there is dinner ready on the table!  And...... there it was! My DH  was so thoughtful that he bought dinner tonight.  So sweet of him. Beautiful  fresh butter naans and channa masala. Yum! Anyway I relaxed and made a card after dinner.

 I have used Card Pattern's sketch 117 and Jay Gee's Nook challenge. Here is the sketch and the color inspirational picture from Jay Gee's Nook.

If you want to participate in the challenge click on the pictures above and it will take your to their respective blogs. 
Here is another picture of my card and a closeup. I have used Pink Paislee's Butterfly Collection pattern papers. Its such a gorgeous collection. Love it. Cardstocks, envelope, tag and the stamps are from Papertrey Ink.

The script ribbon and lace are from an Etsy shop. The wrinkled ribbon is handmade. The flower is from Prima Marketing and brad from Stampin' Up! The envelope can be opened and money can be placed inside.  Hope you like my card.
 Tonight is very cold night and raining tomorrow. But I will tucked inside a nice warm electric blanket. In heaven I will be :) Have a good night.

What a sweetheart of a husband to have dinner ready for you! The card is beautiful - it looks like something I'd see from Melissa Phillips.

Just beautiful. A true reflection of a wonderfully full tummy, loved wife and a nourished crafty soul. Bliss. Wonderful card and utterly shabby-licious. Just the perfect amount of gorgeousness. I love the text ribbon and the handmade seam binding. So scrumptious!

What a great feeling after a busy day to come home and have a nice meal waiting and be able to relax and enjoy it. I love your card, so beautiful! The envelope is great, especially being able to put some money inside. Thank you so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)
