Secret to Happiness

I love beautiful quotes - no secret there. So I was thrilled to discover Quietfire Design and their multitude of quotes in beautiful fonts! I received an order just before Christmas and am now getting a chance to ink some up. I made this card without any purpose in mind - but think it might be fun to use as an Anniversary card - lol.....

Not sure where I was going with this whole "bow" thing. I had this weird idea that I was going to make the bow into the antennas... until... well... until I ended up using more glue then common sense (I mean... it just wouldn't STAY!!) So, in the end I decided to just be happy that my fingers didn't stay stuck to the card (... giving me even bigger problems at the post office...).

You know, the moment I saw the photo of your card I thought " ribbon antennae". Pure genius! And I adore the bling and the COLOR of the bling. This is absoultely lovely. Oh how I wish I could make something as pretty as this.
