Here it is! My first custom-made card. As I said before, I saw this card in a store, but it cost $9.95. I thought to myself "I know I can make this." I am proud of the way it turned out. It will probably be my signature card/keepsake from now on!

I used white card stock for the card. I used a piece of tulle accented with silver sparkles left over from a prom gown. The wedding dress is left over fabric from my goddaughter's son's baptismal romper and the trims were in my stash! I got the hem trim from Britex in San Francisco!

I just posted some sweet little quick and easy little sundresses I made for my 8 year old daughter with instructions on how to do it yourself, and I recently made a maxi dress for myself from a 1974 pattern I found in an antique store.

So creative! There are endless possibilities!
Thanks for the comment on my blog--I am told my youngest does look like me. I can't see it---she is much, much cuter!
