Going to the Chapel...

Good morning lovely bloggers!

This week at Tellen's Place, we are winding down, getting ready for summer, which brings us to a new challenge: "Going to the Chapel - Time for Weddings."

There is never an end to June weddings and my first marriage, I actually wed on June 16th (so many years ago). King Mufasa and I celebrated in January (but wasn't approved by the judge until February - we had a beautiful Moroccan wedding in Morocco).

For this challenge, I did a traditional design, completing the picture with paper piecing using textured card stock so that you can see the dress better.

I added stickles to the pin flower and looped pearls underneath it. I love my paper - Stampin' Up! I didn't have to think twice, just reversed it and there I had a coordinated patterned paper to enhance the burgundy, which I topped with a die cut from my lovely blogger friend, Diane, who sent me a boat load of gorgeous dies - you'll see more of these soon enough. I added tule as her veil, topped with some paper flowers I received in a swap. Isn't it gorgeous?

Typically, I do not enhance the inside of cards (too much work) but I couldn't resist using a reverse side of my Stampin' Up! designer paper. Don't you love it? I punched out hearts with the other side of the, I was in paper heaven!

I made these for another DT - a trio of wedding cards.

This is a wedding card to send to the bride and groom-to-be. I used K&Company die cuts, embossing some squares for the background - pretty elegant, I'd say.

This is the wedding invitation.

The inside of the invitation - a trifold.

This is a Thank You note the bride would send to those gift-givers.

This the inside of that Thank You note.

Check out Tellen's Place Divas - they really did a great job creating some lovely designs (and not just cards) for this challenge. We hope you'll join us in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a groovy Wednesday! :-)
