Lots of wedding wishes today.  Three to be exact.

For the first card, the invitation was used as a source of inspiration for the color scheme.

This week’s Clean and Simple Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to incorporate something crinkled onto your card or project.  So using a heat embossing gun, the organdy ribbon was heated until it started to melt or “crinkle”.

This card also follows the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast for this week.  It is, however, rotated 180°.

The second card was made… just cuz.  hehe  With all of the Autumn weddings I hadn’t made a pink rose card for awhile, and well frankly… it was time!  lol

I used my new “Roses” embossing folder and colored the roses directly on the folder with markers before embossing.

LOVE the results!

There was even enough ink left on the embossing folder after the first panel was done to do a second.

Look at these roses close up!  Seriously pretty stuff.

Back in August I helped a couple make their wedding invitations.  When I went to actually make them a wedding card I hesitated to use the same stamps/colors/theme, but then gave in to it.

Here is the invitation. I added a yummy chocolate grosgrain ribbon with a satin edge.

The weddings are both this weekend.  Gonna be busy and fun.  Weddings are such a celebration!!
