on your wedding day...

Hello everyone!  Rosemary here today and I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that May is almost over, my youngest turns 15 in just a few weeks and I have two nieces graduating from high school!  Where does the time go?  I also have a niece getting married in July and with that in mind I decided to make a wedding themed card using the Mini Slim Backdrop die set along with the butterfly image from the Hug in a Mug stamp set.  I don't know if you heard the big news, but the Hug in a Mug stamp set now has matching dies... WHOO HOO! 


A few weeks ago I received a free pad of patterned papers from a company I had not heard of called P13.  The company is from Poland and the papers in the pad are absolutely gorgeous.   There are several sheets that have beautiful wreaths of different sizes and I decided to see if I could die cut one with one of the smaller dies from the  Stitched Dot In and Out Circle die set.   I found one that worked perfectly and cut it from the paper.   I found a paper to work with the wreath image and stamped the butterfly using Antique Linen distress ink.  I had to stamp it several times to darken up the image a bit.  I then die cut the butterfly with the matching die.  I cut the butterfly a few more times from scraps and layered those behind the stamped one to give it some dimension.  I adhered the butterfly to the center of the wreath and then brushed it with Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle.  I die cut the largest Mini Slim Backdrop rectangle from off white cardstock and then a partial piece of the same paper I used for the butterfly.  The two were then adhered together and I stamped the sentiment from Have Faith using Memento Pistachio ink.   I wrapped some gold twine around the panel, taped it to the back and then adhered the panel with foam tape to my light yellow card base.  Added the wreath element and I was done.  I used the layout from the Paper Players so I will be posting this in their gallery.  Many thanks to the Paper Players for giving me some great inspiration these last two weeks!  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, too.
