Damask & Sequin Wedding Wishes

With Spring comes many weddings, and I've got to keep my stash of wedding cards full over at the shop.  Here's one I made a few weeks back but hadn't gotten around to posting yet.


I do so love the Vintage Wallpaper background by Market Street Stamps.  It always makes such a pretty card.  I paired it with retired Stampin' Up! green paper from one of their Christmas lines, and a sentiment from Verve.  Though I am usually slow to hop on a trend, I see quite a few sequins on cards now and thought these would make a good addition.  Had to raid the kids' stash of art supplies for these.  ;-)

Challenges entered:  Alphabet Challenge - "G is for Glitter / Gems" and Clear It Out:  Anything Goes + use two patterned papers - check!


This weekend is a busy one for us.  Yesterday, we had Elementary School Field Day (all the town's 3rd - 5th graders get together and compete, Olympic-style, for events like potato sack races, hurdles, softball throw, long jump, etc.), and I appointed myself as our school photographer.  I took over 200 shots, and uploaded them last night.  The kids LOVE this day, and they had so much fun.

Both my girls had dances last night (I was a chaperone at the younger one's dance).  It was fun getting two girls ready!  I love 'girly' things like makeup and hair.  My younger one wore no makeup, but I braided her hair.  My older one wanted a "bump-it".  That one didn't work out as good as I had hoped.  But Haley was happy with it, so that's all that matters.

Today we have an Awards Show for our Dance Studio.  Kerry is Most Improved Student of the Year, and we couldn't be more proud!  Tomorrow is her Dance Recital, and after that, I plan to crash.  ;-)

I like your scattered sequins mixed with your signature pearls! I've used a few here and there, but I think I like the pearls and gems best! Your card is simply lovely as always!

Congrats to your youngest on her award!!! Sounds like you've been a busy mommy!!

This is lovely! The damask is so pretty and actually looks like designer paper. I still have some of that SU! Christmas paper, too. I like how versatile it is for all year long.

I LOVE that MSS Vintage Wallpaper background--so elegant! Makes for an ultra sophisticated card. And look at you getting all trendy with the sequins! They are, as usual, impeccably placed :)
