Happy Wedding!

I know there are those times when we get super excited over something and for me, it is new craft items!  The other day while visiting Lisa and adoring one of her latest cards, I was just loving some dies she had used.  I could not help but run to check out Cheery Lynn Designs and fell in love!  Next thing I am ordering from Beverly at Classy Cards 'n Such and boy oh boy, was she quick to ship and there was my package yesterday!  The best thing about these dies are that they are Made in the USA, which I love!  The paper did not even stick with all those little intricate cuts.  Happy girl here and to think I found two more places to shop!
Now about my card!  Two younger friends recently got married and as soon as I saw this lovely French Pastry Doily die, I ordered it and knew I would pull the picture off Facebook and place it right in the center.  Not that was a perfect fit.  I weaved some green silk ribbon in some of the cutouts and added a pink underside.  For the background, I did a current technique from the Technique Junkies, called, "It Takes Two."  Loved the effect, but did cover most of it up with the doily!  I added some brads and punched corners.

Have a lovely evening and thank you for stopping by.

Stamps:  Stampin Up
Distress Inks:  Old Paper, Antique Linen, Bundled Sage, Old Paper, Victorian Velvet

I found cherry lynn design booth last month for the first time, and saw the beautiful dies, but a bit pricy. now i know, cuz it's made in USA! :-) It's kinda funny that me & other members of the group i belong was just talking about their dies,like a couple of hours ago, how delicate their designs are!! Your card is absolutley beautiful!! :-)

Awww, that turned out so nice! I saw her youtube of those dies and I was wondering about how the intricate pieces would turn out. I may have to get one too. I'm wondering also what punched you used for the corner. I just love it.

Terry, this is a lovely card. I've recently discovered Cheery Lynn Designs too. I only have an Oriental Butterfly DL105 but I do a technique with double sided tape and micro fine glitter I just love. I only use Be Creative tape because it is heatable. When I finally make more I will send you one. Right now I have 21 tags and 12 Christmas cards to make for swaps so I am overwhelmed.
Take Care xo
