Wedding Card

Happy Monday, peeps! Hope your week starts well. I am excited that today, Kelly from Paper Crafts is helping spreading the words about Caring Hearts Card Drive on their blog Paper Crafts Connection. Thank you, Kelly & Susan for your amazing support!! Paper Crafts is donating 6 SPECIAL ISSUES for prizes!!

This past weekend been a busy one for me. My niece stayed with us for a couple night while her mom & dad had a little getaway for the weekend. Hubby was so great with her. LOL, how could she not love him, when he play water squirt with her. They chased each other all around the house with squirt bottle. By the time their done, they were both so wet and I had to take the bottles away from both of them. LOL, I get to play the bad cop.

Sunday, I finally had some time to make cards. Here's the card that I made for Jenny's wedding. She'll be on her honeymoon, so I figure it's okay to share the card here as most likely she won't see it and it'll be waiting for her when she come back. :)

Challenges:
Sweet Stampin - bling
No Time To Stamp - back to nature
AiFactory - embossing

For me, wedding card is one of the hardest card to make. I finally settled on using vellum to create the soft look. Stamped & embossed the vellum and add colors around the edges by rubbing chalks on the back side of the vellum. Then punch a bunch of butterflies using blue vellum.

Oh, I almost forgot, my card here was chosen as the lucky random winner for Some Odd Girl monochromatic challenge. Yay!

Tomorrow, I'll have a Christmas card to share with you. Now, I am off to browse the amazing sneak peek from Papertrey Ink release. Have a great week everyone!
