The Cutting Cafe - Best Wishes

Gosh...it's June already!  Anybody know where May went?  We've been having the normal afternoon thunderstorms almost daily.  The big ones cause the barometric pressure to drop fast and when that happens, my blood pressure goes up.  Weird, right?  Means I have to take extra meds and I get a horrible headache.  It's subsided a bit so I'll try to make this brief.  
 
At any rate, when I think of June, I think of weddings...we don't have any icoming up soon but when I found this elegant Color Splash Challenge #18 over on Hand Stamped Sentiments blog, I just couldn't resist playing along.  
                                            
                                             
                                                  
Regina, over at The Cutting Cafe has just designed a set of card frames called fittingly, Celebration Frames.  You get 3 frames..."Party Time", "Happy Birthday" and"Best Wishes".  I thought the Best Wishes would be perfect for a wedding card.  
 
                                    
I tried to keep the card CAS (Clean and Simple) so I added a strip of DP and simple sentiment panel.  See that cute bag?  It's one of my most favorite bags.   It's by The Digi Chick and it's called Funky Bag 2.  I'm not sure why as I think it's just perfect.  I kept it simple to go with the card and because I wanted it to look more taylored like the card.  The bag is closed with a velcro dot and the accent is just a gem glued into the depression on my button.    I printed the DP from a free download pack I got a long time ago.  It's on my other computer so I'll look it up and add it later.  I think it's called Lola.   Isn't it elegant?  I used the leftover strip on my card so no waste!
 
Thanks for stopping by to play with me today.  I love your comments!!
