Sending Love

July 21, 2011

Hey there everyone!  I hope that you have had a wonderful week so far!  I have been super busy editing photos from the last three weekends of weddings!  I get this weekend off from weddings, but have a family event to attend in place, where I will still be photographing...just not as intense. 

I have a card for Stamper's Dream to share with you today.  It is also my card for CPS Sketch #227, where we were sponsored by Want 2 Scrap this week.  I also used the inspiration photo from The Pink Elephant #108, which features some of my very favorite colors and items!  Here is what I created!
"Sending Love" supplies: 
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft & vintage cream)
Paper/Twine: My Mind's Eye (Lime Twist: Life of the Party 6x6 pad)
Stamps: JustRite Stampers (Just Because set)
Ink: Tsukineko (Versamagic: sea breeze)
Pearls: Want 2 Scrap
Jewels: Kaiser Craft
Flower: Recollections
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories

Instructions:  Make card from kraft cardstock, then round the lower left and upper right corners.  Cut a triangle of aqua dotted paper, round the lower left corner, and adhere to the front.  Wrap pink twine across the seam.  Cut a block of pink dotted paper and round the lower left and upper right corners.  Adhere the pearl hearts to the top of it, and accent with a paper rose.  Cut a banner from vintage cream cardstock, stamp the sentiment to it, and adhere it to the bottom of the pink dotted block.  Adhere the entire block to the card front, and accent the sentiment banner with jewels.  Tie a double bow from twine, and adhere to the lower right corner of the pink dotted block.  Accent the middle of the bow with a pink pearl to finish.

I have posted my first wedding of the season to my photography blog, and I would love for you to head on over and check it out if you'd like to!  It is my first traditional church wedding in quite awhile, so I was very happy with the outcome!  Just click on the photo to take you to the blog post! 

I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Thursday!! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
