Hello There Friend

Howdy.  I made a card yesterday for a special girlfriend.  She moved to Yuma about 4-5 years ago.  I miss her most days.  She was always easy to talk to, and had such a great outlook on life.  A very positive person.  Anyways, I wanted to send her a card.  A very special card, for a special woman.
I am entering my creation into the current challenge over @ Word Art Wednesday, for their anything goes challenge.
I am also entering the current challenge over @ Crafting by Designs, for their flowers & lace challenge.  My flowers are digital, but my lace is real.  {smile}

here is what I came up with:

Let me apologize for the 'rough' photo.  I am still figuring out the new upgrade on my photo program.  

Recipe:  I used white card stock from Paper Trey Ink.  I just love their heavy weight card stock.  It works great for card bases.
I used a scrap piece of baja breeze designer pattern paper, by Stampin' Up!.  I just love the faded blue color.  Very vintage, and works with shabby chic style paper crafts {smile}.  
I adhered a digital library card to the center.  I added a double border with my sewing machine.  I just love sewing on cards. 
I wrapped a piece of white lace and baja breeze seam binding around the lower portion of the library card.  I secured the trims to the card front with a double machine stitch.  
I tied a double bow with the seam binding.  I also tied a silver star with some thin silver cord, and created a simple bow.  I tied the silver bow and seam binding bow together with a pale pink button.
I inked the stamp with basic black classic ink, and stamped directly onto the library card.  
To add some softness (and hide an ink smudge) I added a trio of marshmallow sequins to the card front.  Now, I need to get this card into the mail.  Thank you for looking. {smile}
I really enjoyed working with these library cards, so I will be making a few to sell in my Etsy shop.
