An Awesomely Beautiful Card


Today I have this beautiful card to share with you that was a surprise gift to me by my good blogger friend Carol from From the first time I saw her creations on her wonderful blog, I have been in awe. Her cards are the most fantastic works of art that will have you wanting to see more. The detail of the layout and the accessories, the color combinations, the equisite cutouts and edgings - each one has you looking at it for a long time to take it all in.

The most amazing thing about Carol's cards are that the inside is as beautiful and detailed as the card front AND the envelope is also crafted by Carol and just as lovely as the card! If you have not seen Carol's blog - "Chocolate Crafts, And Bears, Oh My!" you are missing a treat! Go there now and see her wonderful cards and projects and leave her a comment to say hello. :<)

And now I own one of her cards and I am so excited! Believe me when I say that the card in real life is even more beautiful than in the photos! The card measures 6" square and the envelope 6 1/2". I have taken the photos a little dark in an attempt to show the amazing depth and detail. Check out those flowers! Thank you Carol! I love my card! :<)
