Wedding Card by request....

I created this card as a specific request of my Mom, who needs a wedding card. I really struggle with 'fancy' cards.... I always think of Sharon's (notimetostamp) amazing creations. She has such a gift! Her gallery is filled with stunning, fancy & elegant cards. If Sharon sees this, I hope she likes it---and I hope you all like it too!! Thanks for looking, and have a good evening everyone!!

Stamps: Fabulous Flowers, En Francais, Wonderful Words
Paper: Papertrey white, SU brushed silver
Ink: Going Grey
Accessories: Silver embossing powder, brads, ticket corner punch, dazzling diamonds, glue pen, ribbon, silver cord .

A Holly Jolly Reindeer and a Sketch Challenge

Love this little guy....though I think he's been feeling neglected!! I almost started playing Christmas music while making this---but thought I'd better not tempt fate---I don't want the snow to start flying quite so soon. (Especially since we're taking care of snow removal for our elderly neighbor this winter.) Ugh...don't want to think about that kind of stuff just yet. I want to enjoy Fall weather a bit longer....say 'til Christmas Eve???

Stamps: MFT-Hare for the Holidays
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Papertrey white, Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, Basic Grey-Fruitcake
Ink: Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Distressing Tool, Ticket Corner & Word Window punches, ribbon, Copic & SU markers, dimensionals, brads, hardware.

This was created for this week's sketch challenge on SCS....a great forum for trying new layouts & finding inspiration!! SCS is such a fabulous site---SO much talent, willingness to share and encouragement from others! One of my favorite parts of SCS is the 'Dirty Dozen' gallery---with new designs by the current design team members unveiled on the 15th of every month! For a small fee, you are able to view some unbelievable creations made by super-talented artists AND help support the greatest stamping site on the web! I tried paper-piecing and used a scrap of Basic Grey DP to make Santa's outfit for this card.
