Good morning! I am preparing to head to a wedding....**CHILDLESS**...which is amazing! Don't get me wrong, I love kids at weddings. Watching them dance...hearing their laughter...watching them try to sneak sips out of the champagne toast glasses... There's just something about attending a wedding sans children. It adds so much to the experience for the parents of said children. It becomes more of a relaxing day, kicking back and watching two of the cutest people become husband and wife is your only focus.
That's precisely what I plan to do today. They are our neighbors, just the cutest couple ever, and I cannot wait to see them become Mr. & Mrs. I made this card for them using my Ultimate Crafter's Companion. It allowed me to not only score the card just right to be folded to this K-card perfection, but also cut out the shapes that make up the swing-out center of the card. I chose a pearly paper base with matching white pearl paper for the center. Awesome silver rub-ons I'd been sitting on for a looooong time, just waiting for the perfect project (and yes, the silver studs came with the rub ons), a strand of pearls, and a K & Co. rub-on sentiment made this a simple but elegant card. I really love how it turned out, and need to find a bazillion more of this rub-on so that I can make some of these for my Etsy shop! I just adore this card! The envelobox was also made using the Ultimate tool, *love* this addition to my crafting. Pearls, Imaginisce flowers, a Pink Paislee brad, and MM glitter alpha add just the right thing to the front.
In other news (which I should have shared yesterday, but I have a horrible cold and spent the day canning pickles, salsa, and pears so I was quite busy), the End of Summer Sketch-a-Thon has begun over at sketches4all. Yesterday was challenge #3, my day to post a challenge. Head on over to see the sketch that was the inspiration for this card, consisting of items from a WeScrap kit (Crate Paper papers & border sticker, Victorian Violet Distress Stickles, random twine, and Pink Paislee letters and trim.) Play along for some great prizes! Hope you all enjoy the day, off to shower and get ready for the wedding!
