Wedding Bells are Ringing

It's a GLORIOUS morning today girls - if you are reading this on Saturday then you are reading this on my daughter's wedding day. Thankfully blogger allows us to schedule posts for times when we are too busy to blog for real.

Today is a Just Us Girls challenge day and sweet Lisa is our Hostess. This week, in honor of my DD's wedding, we are all supposed to make WEDDING CARDS! That's it - how simple right? I was going to take the week off from JUGS and, technically I could have. However, I made a card for my DD's shower recently so I'm posting that for you today! THANKS Lisa for doing this fun challenge this week - I will be excited to see all the ideas for wedding cards - let me just say now thanks to all of you who participate - I doubt I'll get to much commenting with this busy weekend (we have a family reunion as well!)

Here's the card I made. My DD's wedding colors are black and white with a pop of yellow.... thus my color choices.

I'm showcasing some fabulous paper from PaperTemptress for the card and the hearts and the dress.  I saw a sample of a wedding dress made from a scalloped circle somewhere on SCS and I apologize that I do not have the original source where I saw this idea... If it was someone out there reading my blog contact me and I promise to give proper credit. My sentiment is from Gina K Design's With This Ring stamp set.

After I assembled the card I wish I had cut the "waistline" of the dress a bit higher so the dress would appear longer - to me it looks like a short wedding dress LOL. The dress was cut from beautiful white paper from PaperTemptress but then I cut and embossed a vellum layer to go over the white layer so you don't see the pretty paper under it.


For a little depth to the neckline I cut out a "V" (2 scallops worth) then mounted it ever so slightly lower and trimmed it up with some rhinestones. I added a satin "sash" and the white prima rose is to signify a wedding bouquet of sorts.

I finished off the inside by using a negative heart cut out on the same black paper then stamped a simple sentiment (from Gina K's With This Ring set) inside the heart. I added a touch of yellow and some scalloped edging as well.

Pop over to see what the rest of the design team came up with (sidebar-->) and I'd like to extend a HUGE thank you to Debbie M for being our Featured Designer this month. She was a fabulous addition to the team and I really appreciate all of her talent. THANKS, Debbie!!

Here's a photo of my DD and me at one of her showers recently.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week. I'll be back next week with a post with some photos!

Hugs n smiles,
