Wedding Card for My Sister & a Blog Award Update! :)

Happy Saturday everyone!  I have to first start of by saying a BIG thank you to Rebecca at Crafting Misfit.  She has given me this blog award, and I truly feel honored that she thought of me!  Her blog is amazing, she is not a misfit at all in this crafting world! :)  Check out her blog sometime, you'll enjoy it!  Thanks again Rebecca!  You can see the orignal post for this blog award by clicking here.


Now onto my card for today....  I have had this card in mind for a while now....  I just couldn't decide if I should do a traditional wedding card, or a  Las Vegas themed card for my sister....  Well.....  After much consideration, I decided to make a half & half card (half traditional, half Vegas)!  How fun!  I had a great time making this card, and I really like the end result!  I know my sister is going to like it too (and the cash gift inside doesn't hurt)... ;)




This is an A2 sized card.  I really stepped outside of my comfort zone for this one....  I didn't use my Cricut at all on this card!  AND I didn't use my Cuttlebug OR my Stickles!!!  AND I didn't enter this into any challenges!  Wow!  Who am I?!?!  :)  Let's look at the Vegas side:  The font is AR HERMANN, size 48.  The stickers are from Jolee's....  Now let's take a look at the traditional side:  The font is Edwardian Script ITC, size 48.  The stickers are from K & Company.  The pearls and rhinestones are from The Paper Studio. 

There you have it, my first (and possibly only) half & half card....  Hope you enjoy it!  :)

Thank you so much for this beautiful & fun card!!! We both loved it! I love it so much I'm going to put it in my photo album as a photo (: just when I thought it couldn't get any better I opened it to see a quote from John Lennon, "All you need is love.". That quote will forever remind me of the amazing Beatles LOVE show we all watched and experienced together before the wedding!!!!!

Love- Your Sis
