Wedding Traditions

Hello everyone,

Today's card is inspired from yesterday's Papertake Weekly Challenge for Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. I used Techno Stamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch as a starting point. I really wanted to get started using the fabulous stamped images I got in the mail today from my card making blogging buddy, Erin T. and these challenges fit the bill.

The card base is from Recollections. The bottom layer is Stampin' Up Brocade Blue which was punched with Martha Stewart's Optic Drop border punch. The patterned layer is My Mind's Eye Coastal 'Curious'. The ribbon is previously enjoyed and of unknown origin. The image is Waltzingmouse Big Blooms Chrysanthemums and is highlighted with Waterfall Stickles. The bottom oval layer was punched from another Big Blooms Chrysanthemums. The sentiment is American Crafts Wedding which is stamped on a scrap of Stampin' Up Very Vanilla.

The 'something old' is the ribbon. The new is the sentiment. I'm calling the 'something borrowed' the images from Erin T. The blue is pretty self-evident. Overall this is a very traditional wedding card. Overall, I love this card - the colours, the sparkle and just the entire feel. Thanks Erin for the great images, they've got me feeling really creative.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
