This was a very unique *challenge* and so well organized and thought out. The recipe was determined by the first initial of our first name. So, since my name is Pam, I used the coordinating O-U recipe. If there was a particular category we didn't like, or if it had elements we didn't have, we were allowed to change ONE category. In my case, I used everything exactly as listed. It made it more of a challenge as I rarely use rhinestones, glitter and lace as embellishments. The colors were easy for me and I enjoy making different size cards too. This one is 3-1/4 x 6-1/2" - so saffron cardstock.
The pretty pink, green and yellow floral paper is from the Sweet Nectar Designer Mat Pad by K & Company. My "lace" is actually pink paper punched with a lace border punch. I put a dot of glue on each of the light pink polka dots and added a fine irridescent glitter to them. Once they dried, I added the VERVE sentiment from the Beautiful You set. It was die cut using one of Verve's awesome A Cut Above dies. I'm not sure if it was legal to add ribbon, but I attached a light pink polka dot bow as a final touch.

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Author unknown, variation of an excerpt from "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Neibuhr
