International Blog Highlight

Well hello there,
So happy you stopped by today!  It is a very special day.  I decided to join other Stampin'UP! demonstrators to participate in Kylie Bertucci's International Stampin'UP! Blog Highlights.
What is a blog highlight you ask?  This is where Stampin'UP Demonstrators showcase projects and YOU get to vote on your favourites. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that here - October Highlights - VOTE FOR ME

Our theme for this highlight is
Change of Life Circumstances.
Retiring, new baby, new home, New job, leaving a job, Wedding.... any change in life event.
I am choosing to showcase a very special wedding card I created for my sister.  We (all but my oldest son) travelled to New Brunswick to see her get married last month and I have yet to share the card I made.  I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share it.  I just love the way it turned out.  Here is my card...
I kept the colours very simple - Whisper White cardstock and Basic Grey Ink.  I started with a Whipser White cardbase and then cut a layer 4 x 5 1/4.  I cut a circle out for the greeting to show through.  I wanted lots of texture, so then I dry embossed using the Softly Falling Embossing folder.
Before I added the layer to the card base, I placed the layer on top of the cardbase and then stamped my greeting through the cut out .  then, I die cut both flower flourishes from the Florish Thinlits to help frame the greeting.  I added some basic pearls to parts of the flourish and a Basic Grey bow to the stem of the flourish.  I popped this layer up using dimensionals.

Finally, if I may, share a picture of my beautiful sister on her wedding day with my 2 younger boys.  I just LOVE this picture!  They look so handsome all dressed up.

I hope you enjoyed my card and decide to come back and visit.  If you live in Canada you can shop with me, I would love to help!
Thanks for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog - HERE to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.

Happy Stampin'
