A day late and a dollar short

Happy Sunday! 
I hope things are warmer in your corner of the world than they are here. Brrr. We went from absurdly warm and sunny (73°) back to 30° and 4 inches of snow (and counting) over the course of ONE DAY. Crazy. 

Last week during the Past, Present, & Future challenge on Nichole's blog, I saw this gorgeous card of Lizzy's

And since I didn't have any of the featured sets from 2016, I decided to case her card and recreate it with a set I DID own. 
Lizzy used To Have and To Hold, I decided to try Embellished Elegance

I used Shimmer Mist to spray my background panel with green speckles which is difficult to see here, and I stamped a large woodgrain stamp onto my card base of Fine Linen for the left side. A minuscule strip of white cardstock defines the edge. 
I curved the leafy stamps to form a heart shape and added several flowers from the set, along with the Love die cut and sentiment. While I do have the matching dies for Embellished Elegance, I found it was easier to just fussy cut them by hand. 

Unfortunately, I didn't get this card posted in time for the challenge. Poo. Which is why you are seeing it today:) The inside has a Happy Anniversary sentiment from the same set because I will be sending it to my bestie and her husband come June. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Your card is lovely! I like the combination of the woodgrain with the delicate pastel flowers. I just posted a card for 2013 myself. I'm glad I'm not the only who is posting later!

I cased that card, too, but your version is stunning, Dana! Wonderful stamping & colors & I love the strip of woodgrain!
