Wedding Week.......

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone! How was your weekend?
Mine was pretty good... I got to spend some time crafting again!
In fact I was messing with the Brand New MDS 2 that Stampin' Up
came out with! It is wayyyyy cool! So I was playing with that and my
Silhouette Cameo.... I was trying to learn how to create something in MDS 2
& cut it on my Cameo.... I spent a lot of hours trying to teach myself
how to do this... I did manage to cut stuff out between both programs....
I'm still learning the ins & outs of both.... But I can see them
working together to help make my creations! :o)

So I decided to make this week..... "WEDDING WEEK"
Here on my blog... WHY? You ask... Well I'll  tell ya... :o)
I don't know ANYONE who has gotten married in JUNE!
I know tons of people who've gotten married in
September & October (me included)
So I was working on some wedding cards....
My friend who owns the local Scrapbook Store's
Daughter is getting married in September and I thought
I would make her a card and prepare for the
"Wedding Season"! LOL
So here's one of the cards that I created! :o)

I used my Silhouette to create this card... I GOOGLED
"Wedding Silhouette" and found this clip art image.....
Can't remember from where (SORRY)....
So first thing I did was size everything  
Then I printed out the image through
my Cameo program... after that I let the machine cut
the shapes out....
Then I went to MDS (My Digital Studio) from Stampin' Up
And printed out some pretty paper that I liked and cut it
 along with using a border punch....
I used the Devine' Swirls Embossing Folder from Provo Craft
and as I started to put my card together I thought to myself...
Self.... You have pearls.... (DUH) USE THEM!!! LOL
So I pulled out a roll of "Fused Pearls" I got from
Wally World a long while ago and attached the pearls
with Glossy Accents.... Then I went back to my trusty
Computers and typed out "Congratulations" in my word program...
Then punched it out 2x's... once with the sentiment the other
in the yellow... thought it needed a little something more and
added 2 gems..... And Wallah.... a Wedding Card...

Thanks so much for stopping by.... I'll
be back with another wedding card for this weeks
series "Wedding"... In the mean time have an
