Wedding Shower

A week or so ago I mentioned that Cortney's teacher is getting married in June. The school threw her a wedding shower that included her students. I wanted to make her a card. (well actually I HAD to make her a card.....because she knows that I make cards.....and going to Hallmark would NOT be acceptable!) I used this set from Artful Inkables. I used Versamark and black embossing powder. I used my Copic airbrush system to give it a bit of color. I left the Nestibility on to give it a pretty white edge.

I placed a doily under the main image and did a bit of sewing. The paper is Graphic 45. Love its delicious vintagyness! (Is that even a word? and if so.....did I spell it totally wrong?)


The little bouquet of flowers stuck in my ribbon was picked up in the bridal section at Michaels. I have bought some really pretty things in the bridal section at Michaels! : )
That's all I've got for you today! It is such a busy time of the year.......too much to do!
Thanks for stopping!!! Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!!

Hallmark would never have a card as gorgeous as this, but yes I know exactly what you mean, the pressure is on when family and friends know you make cards!!
