Wishing You a Lifetime of Happiness

Hello! Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a great weekend! I've managed to get some "me" (aka stamping) time in as well as family time, so it's been a good weekend here. Today I have a card that I made for my niece, Evie, and her fiance, JR. They are getting married next weekend.. I cannot believe the day is almost here!!

Her wedding colors are black and cream AND she loves butterflies, so that's what I went with for the card. I pulled out the newly released (perfect timing!) Verve set, Love Story, and stamped the frame and sentiment. I created the butterfly border with Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly punches. I added some subtle dry embossing on both the black and smaller cream layer, though it's hard to see in the photo. I also added cream pearls to the center of each butterfly. Some sheer ribbon, pearl trinket pins and a little stitching finish off the card.

Finally, I have to show you a photo of Sabrina in the dress that she is wearing to the wedding. My SIL, Mary (Evie's mom), made this beautiful satin dress for her (as well as dresses for her granddaughters) -- pretty amazing, huh?! I can't believe how grown up she looks in this photo (even though she doesn't have her 2 front teeth!).. : )

Thanks so much for stopping by!
