Card Cupids Weekly Challenge

I've posted about Card Cupids in the past. They are a great organization that sends cards to children in need. I haven't had the opportunity yet to work with them, however I do follow their blog. Its always a joy to read and they have some really awesome posts. One of the weekly posts at Card Cupids is a weekly challenge. It changes every Sunday and the themes are always pretty general. This week its red, white and blue.
I don't know about you but to me red, white and blue makes me think of the American flag. I didn't really want to do a patriotic card since I felt like that would be to easy. So instead I went through my paper stash to see what I had. I also realized that this would be a perfect opportunity to do something for my friends wedding since her colors are red and blue.

Since my friend and her fiance haven't set a date yet I decided to just do a best wishes card. This way I can send it now and she will have some color inspiration for her wedding. The dark grey dots are actually medium grey crystals, the picture just doesn't do a good job of showing them off. This card came out totally different than how I pictured it in my head but I love it. Now its off to the mailbox to go to my friend.
