LSC210 and WSC71 - For the Bride

Today's Challenge on SplitCoast was the Limited Supplies Challenge. What normally happens is that the hostess chooses a number of supplies/stamp set(s) that we can use and that's what we have to work with. Sometimes we have to stamp right on our card (no layers - EEK!) and sometimes we aren't allowed to use any embellishments at all (again - EEK!).

Today, clearly, wasn't a normal day. We had NO restrictions. We could use whatever we wanted, in any number. The catch? Thirty minutes. That's it! Half an hour or less. YIKES!!!

I went to see my SU! pusher (I mean demo) this morning. Have I mentioned how absolutely AMAZING she is? The first Friday of the month I get to hang out with her for a couple of hours and work on the month's Stamper's Club projects - which, as usual, were seriously STINKIN' AWESOME!!! What's a Stampers Club you ask? Just click on that little linky up there and cruise around Caroline's site. You'll find out...it's a great way to get the stamps you want without having to a big fancy party, clean your house, make food for everyone...you get the idea. Check it out!

ANYWAY...I had asked Caroline if I could borrow a couple of wedding sets to try my hand at some wedding cards. NO, I will NOT be making wedding invitations because that's WORK and I stamp for FUN! I have, however, had some requests for wedding cards and since wedding season is about to get into full swing, I thought it would be a good idea to make some up.

One of the sets she had for me is "For the Bride" and it is, quite simply, elegant.

When I got home, the Weekend Sketch Challenge had been posted. You can find that here. When I saw the sketch, I knew it would be PERFECT to combine with the Limited Supplies Challenge and I went to work! This was definitely quick and easy, but the results were STUNNING:


I stamped our bride in Blue Bayou on Shimmering White cardstock and matted her on a piece of pierced Blue Bayou. The card base is A2 sized Kraft with a 4 X 5 1/4 layer of Soft Sky DSP (man I miss that colour!)

I tied the ribbon and stamped the sentiment for a perfect finishing touch.

What do you think?

Stamps: For the Bride
Paper: Shimmering White, Kraft, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky DSP
Accessories: Paper Piercer/Mat Pack, Ribbon

Happy Stampin'!
