Wedding Bells are Ringing

Hello, and happy Thursday!  It's especially happy for me because I don't have to work tomorrow.  Yay!  My friends are getting married tomorrow and I'm in the wedding, so it should be a very fun day.  (Yes, my friends are getting married on Friday the 13th.  That's just the kind of people I hang out with. LOL)

This week's Digi Doodle Shop challenge is Paper Lace, and with weddings on the brain I decided to do a wedding card.



I used the lovely Just Married, available in the Anniversaries & Weddings section of the store.  See that pretty purple trellis in the middle of the card?  That's my paper lace.  It's a brand new punch, and I just love it!  My papers are from DCWV's Once Upon a Time paper line, and the flowers are from Recollections (Michael's Craft Stores).  They were originally white, but I misted them with bronze Glimmer Mist to give them an aged look. The image was, of course, colored with Copics.  The front sentiment is a Making Memories stamp.  The inside stamp is from TPC Studio.

Now, originally this was going to be the wedding card we give our friends.  However, it ended up going in a different direction, so I'm thinking I might try to make another one.  This will have to go to the next people who get married.  =D

Well, now you've seen my card, hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop challenge blog to check out the amazing projects by the rest of the DT.   We have some new faces you might not have met yet, and trust me...you don't want to miss these super talented ladies!

Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do your entry will count twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you want...as long as it's with a new card/project each time.
