Welcome to my addiction!

Thank you for stopping in and looking around. I am an admitted paperholic and try to participate in all things stamped. In the past I have taught classes on unique techniques at our LSS and have loved every minute of it. My mind continues to want to create and share. I garner my inspiration from fellow bloggers, our LSS, and some of the horticulture magazines that come in the mail. Simple pleasures in life make me smile and that includes a simple yet elegant card or piece of paper that I see potential. Please feel free to share your work with me as I share my work with you. Enjoy your visit!

Wishing Two People

Good Evening everyone!
    Well my card today is a Wedding card.  We just found out that a young couple of our church have decided to get married and it's in just two weeks (they have been dating for four years).  So since I am not one to wait, I jumped right on this one!

Since it is a fall wedding, I wanted to use subtle fall colors.  The panels in the forward background were embossed with Spellbinders Flourish Impressibility panel.  The larger of the three flowers is a homemade embellishment as well as the leaves and branches.  The medium roses are princess roses  that I sprayed with Lindy's Fuzzy Navel Peach Stardust spray.  The smallest flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The lower edge was punched with Martha Stewart.  The butterflies are also MS punches.  The tag is also SB Fancy Tags, the center sentiment is from JustRite Stampers.  I wanted to keep this simple and elegant.  The kraft paper cs (Paper Trey Ink) is layered on an eggshell Bazzil cs. The Fancy Tag was cut out of some Club Scrap cs scrap that I had around and helped tie the back paper to the front.  Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen was used to shade the eggshell paper in the raised parts of the embossing.  Finally some antique eggshell lace was draped across the upper right hand corner.  Before the final embellishments were added everything was sprayed lightly with Heavy Metal Shimmeringz for a glimmery finish.

That's it for tonight, hope you enjoyed your visit.  I'll add all the challenges this has been entered into in the morning.  Thanks for stopping :)
