A Big Wedding Day

Stampin' Up! Springtime Vintage Wedding Card

Congratulations to William and Kate on their beautiful royal wedding. I only caught the last half of the ceremony, but I'm sure I'll get to see replays of all the important parts! Also, congrats to all the other couples who chose this day for their wedding too.

Stampin' Up! Occasional Quotes Wedding Day Card

I didn't start out to make a wedding card. I decided to play along with this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I don't usually go for the round/square challenge, but I liked the sketch and wanted to play, so I went for it. At the last minute, I decided to change the focal image to a sentiment and the wedding one from Occasional Quotes (Level 3 Hostess Set) seemed to suit the card best.
Dyed ribbon rosettes in Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze
When I saw the sketch, I knew immediately that I would use those darling vanilla rosettes from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

(I dyed them using Baja Breeze Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter.)

Once I finished the card, it occurred to me that I should wait and post it today in honor of Will and Kate. Wanna guess what happened in the meantime?

Stampin' Up! sold out of the rosettes and will not be getting future shipments.  None. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
I hope YOU already got yours!

You really can't tell from the photos, but the sentiment area has a light spray of Frost White Shimmer spray over it. It's very shimmery in person!
(Go here for instructions on making Shimmer Spray.)
