Wedding Card

     New challenge today at 613 Avenue Create and we're sponsored by the generous and wonderful Paper Shelter!  I am growing my collection of their adorable images and having one more added is a pleasure.  Our theme this week (in addition to the Anything Goes which is always our theme) is "Congratulations" -- any event for which you might wish someone congratulations; wedding, anniversary, new baby, graduation, promotion or new job, ... you get the idea.  I used the "Wedding Couple" image from Paper Shelter.


     The image is cut with a "Fleur de lis" die from Spellbinders and the sentiment was computer printed and then cut with the same die.  For the sentiment, I just cut the top and then shifted the position of the die to the bottom.  That set is all squares and none of them fit the shape of the sentiment so I did some adjusting.  I think the cut is rather interesting.

     I added glitter ink to her gown and veil, pearls to the corners of the fancy die cut, and a bow I made using silver ribbon and a silver bead "pearl."  Although the background looks dark gray, it actually is a light bronze to match the shading in her gown.  But it has a metallic shimmer to it at certain angles and photographing it was a real chore.  Consequently, it looks dark gray in the photo, which is OK because that matches up with his tuxedo.  I've had that paper in my stash forever and still have 3 more sheets of it.  It's taken me that long to decide how to use it.  :-D

     Challenges:
ABC Challenge -- "O" is for Open
Aud Sentiments -- Anything goes
Bearly Mine -- Dies or punches
Catch the Bug -- Going to the Chapel
Crafting for all Seasons -- Wedding/anniversary
Emergency Crafters -- Pomp & Ceremony
Eureka Stamps -- Wedding
Oldie but a Goodie -- Wedding
Sassy Studio Designs -- June Bride
Shopping Our Stash -- No patterned paper

     I really hope this posts.  I'm having some intermittent problems with my internet connection but I don't know if that's affecting Blogger in any way.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and come play with us at 613 Avenue Create.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
