I do day

Here is the other card that I made for my friend's wedding. Well, I made it for a friend who was also attending the wedding. 

Stamps: Word Play
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White cardstock, non-su iridescent vellum paper
Tools: Framed tulips and polka dot embossing folders, labels collection framelits die
Extras: organza ribbon, rhinestone

Here is a closer view of the ribbon treatment and the perfect place for a rhinestone on top of the ring.

This card is a perfect example of what the Big Shot can do, since most of it cannot be done without it.

Hope your finding ways to enjoy this heat wave, phew!

If there isn't a better way to wake up!?! It's when I wake up to find out that my Blushing Bouquet was in the top 3 at SUO challenges. I only rather recently discovered their challenges and quite enjoy a place that celebrates Stampin Up! products, regardless of whether they are retired or not.

The other entries were all so lovely, you must check them all out. I discover the coolest blogs I never knew existed whenever I check out the work of other challenge entries. So many creative ways of using ribbon, colour, layouts, I actually do get lost in them for hours.

Have a great day and I hope something unexpected pops up into your life and gives you a real smile today too!
