Here Comes the Bride - New Challenge at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge

This week at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Dazzling Ace Designs!!!! Of course it's always Anything Goes but this week with an optional twist - wedding!!!!! 

NOW . . . I hate to admit this but I'm not a wedding type nor do I like to make wedding cards. Granted, I've been married 3 times and have failed all 3 times sew, I should have this down pat but I don't!!!!!!!  I did have several good role models but just didn't have the right guy or I wasn't the right gal!!!!!! My grandparents and parents were married for over 50 years EACH!!!!! My dad's parents weren't married that long as my dad's mother had passed away at a very young age during child birth. 

My parents: June 15, 1951 and both died within a month of each other in 2011

My mother's parents: June 15, 1921 

My dad's parents:

and here's my card using Dazzling Ace Designs

  • Recollection coral card stock for size A2 card with scraps as the background fussy cut around the flowers to give dimensional look
  • image is pre-colored with Stickles out-lining the lace, bridal bouquet, and veil
  • wanted a vintage photo album feel thus the need for the corners attached to image 
  • Queen & Co. white pearls in the corner, around the lace, and in the corner of the photo tabs
  • Recollection white rose on corner and again, the Stickles Queen added some Stickles to the petals
  • sentiment, "May love and laughter be yours forver after" is from Create with TLC Wedding Love Birds Vintage Image and Word Art Set was chalked around the edges with and mounted on scraps
