VC Rocks! Any Size Card Hop

Most likely you just came here from Robbie's blog, InkedX2.
Aside from the traditional sized card, this is my next favorite size to make.  The card is 3-1/4" x 6-1/2".  The first time I made a card this size was June '09 with the Blooming with Love stamp set.  I haven't been able to part with that set because of that card.  Crazy!  I like today's card just as much. 
Stamps:  Friendly Phrases CS:  VV, Pool Party, Cajun Craze, Comfort Cafe DP Ink:  Cajun Craze Misc.:  Beautiful Wings embosslits, Adorning Accents EF, Pearls
Your next stop on the blog hop is with Janice at Stamping with Janice.  Enjoy!!
