Winnie & Walter's Belated 2nd Birthday!

w&w_bb2ndb_challengefinal

Happy birthday to Winnie & Walter ... it is never too late to celebrate you!  Congratulations ... bring on the next 20!

Today I'm playing cards with Heather Hoffman who presented us with this beauty in water-colored pink and gold - a very popular combination in my craft room at the moment:

 
With an assist from Lola's Bouquet, gold heat embossing, Delicata gold stamping, a little water colored wash, and a sweet little vellum vase, I will be sending hugs to someone deserving ...
 
Inside:  Hugs, because you earned them ... I wish I could deliver them in person!
 
Hope she likes it!!

Oh wow!! I LOVE that color combination and the way you used vellum for your vase. May I ask how you stuck it on? I never have found a good adhesive that I have liked for vellum-and I have a lot!! I also love the detail on the side with the gold and pink card stock. Such a lovely addition to this beautiful card!!

Oh, such a sweet, sweet card in this gorgeous colour combo! I agree with Nora, the right hand side strips are a terrific architectural detail!
Bravo, friend...and good luck!
