CFC103: Congratulations

It's CAS-ual Fridays time! 
I hope you'll play along with this week's challenge!
Make a CAS card with a congratulations type sentiment!

I've read before that it's proper manners to offer a woman "Best Wishes" and a man "Congratulations" when getting married. Have you heard that? Something about the man gets the "congrats" for "winning the lady", like he's the lucky one, and the woman gets the "best wishes" for future happiness. So that's why I went with "Best Wishes" here. Wouldn't want to offend any of my lady friends! ha! Seems like we always have plenty of young, female teachers getting married at school, so I know this card will come in handy!

Are you ready to play along? 
This week's sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 
and the winner will get to choose a free stamp set! Woot! Woot! 

I can't wait to see your creative take on "Congratulations" cards!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Hugs and happy stamping!

I've heard the same thing about "Congratulations" vs. "Best Wishes". Think you've chosen a perfect sentiment. Love the pairing of whimsy and elegance.

This is utterly fantastic! I think my favorite part is that the thread is a color - not white or cream or black (But I guess those are colors, too!). You know what I mean. Anyway this is a fantastic card!
