Bee Crafty - Weddings

First off, I have to say HAPPY CANADA DAY!! This year marks 144 years of being a beautiful country. I am very proud to be a Canadian and think we are the cat's meow :)

I love that we are a kind and friendly nation with beautiful lakes and open fields. Our small cities and "know your neighbours" towns where we spell neighbour with a "u" and litre with an "re". Isn't being Canadian awesome???

Today's DT Challenge: A new month brings a new challenge at Bee Crafty: Wonderful Weddings!

Time to break out the pretty papers!

I used Wedding Cake {found here}:


Made especially for my cousin's up coming wedding. Her colors of course, are turquoise and black and white damask pattern.


I spritzed the whole card with vanilla shimmer spray, which is a bit hard to capture in a photo:
Card Ingredients:
Bee Crafty digi; Recollections cardstock; Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties; Smooch Spritz Vanilla spray; Celebrate It ribbon; Martha Stewart paper flower; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder; Recollections gems and pearls.


I made this damask wedding card for the following challenges:

I am off to enjoy the long weekend. I have been off work this week to do some things around the house and it has been busy. I almost can't wait to get back to work - I CAN'T believe I am saying that!
