To Love and Cherish

I went on a "small" shopping spree Saturday
looking for some of the new 6 x 6 burlap papers DCWV has out
I took the back roads and it was a pleasant trip....
seeing all the crops still waiting to be harvested....
 
Southwest, lower Michigan is known for all it's fruit and veggies grown here
The apple trees are loaded, I passed a HUGE cabbage patch waiting to be picked
Pumpkin fields everywhere...it just makes me feel good...plus the fact that I stopped
at the cutest fruit stand
they have a gift shop in it, baked goods (I purchased a pumpkin muffin) coffee
and the cutest little area to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee
I bought some butter rum candle nuggets...and they smelled so good, the hubs thought
they were something to eat...good thing he didn't
 
I did get my burlap paper at Joann Fabrics and also the nicest glitter paper I have seen,
also from DCWV, called Glitzy Glitter...it is a thin paper, and the glitter stays put.
you will love it.
 
 
Which brings me to this card....
I used the glitter paper to cut my CLD silver basket....
I filled it with aqua blue frosty flowers.....
the bow has a charm hanging from it that says "to Love and to Cherish"
the charm was on a wedding favor at my daughter's friend wedding....
the colors, aqua, silver, green and white are were the colors of her wedding....
this card will go to her for their anniversary....
how fun will it be to get one of her charms back?
 
And guess what??
It just so happens that this week at City Crafter
the challenge is this photo to use
 
 
and, you guessed it!!
silver, white, aqua and green...perfect!!

Oh so pretty! I'll be on the look out for that (not all over you) glittery paper and your flowers are so pretty! What a fabulous idea to add the charm ... wonder if she'll remember it?
Beautiful creation Diane ...
I'm so glad you were able to enjoy Mother Nature and God's Green Earth ... it certainly does one good to take a day and just look around at how blessed we are!!! Thanks for sharing that moment in time!

So many pretties to see today, Diane! Gorgeous basket of flowers with the inspration colors. Your trip sounds like the perfect fall day excursion. We have a newly expanded Joann's and a friend and I spent an afternoon there recently. Came home with too much stuff, but no burlap paper. Reminds me I do have something similar, though...
