Updated: WW Summer Wedding ATC and a Challenge Card


Our sponsor this week at Wicked Wednesday is Just Some Lines and I used two of their images to make this Summer Wedding themed ATC, I used both EMO Bride and Groom and Wedding Cake images. I did some photo manipulating on the couple image and erased the bride's bouquet so the ATC wouldn't look too busy. Sadly, I didn't have an ounce of artistic confidence at the time to re-draw her arm in and left it blank...thank-goodness the cake is delicious looking enough that you might not have noticed?!!

Don't forget that you have until next Tuesday evening to enter your ATC in the Summer Wedding challenge, we'd love to have you join us!

**********************************************************

A quick update:
I rec'd a call today for a wedding card and immediately thought to myself that this ATC was meant to be made into a card....which is what I did this evening and just finished. This was fun to make because I haven't made a card with this many layers for quite a while. I used Kim Yu's July sketch for inspiration and am entering it in her monthly challenge. I'm also entering this in 365 Cards Day 133 - Misty challenge because I sprayed the flowers with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays.


**********************************************************

For my next project it took me a couple of days to get this card completed, as I had all the elements sitting on my desk but I just couldn't figure out how to put it together until I saw this fab card by Tracy MacDonald...which I totally CASED!


TGF's Birthday Ian was colored in Copics and I used all DP scraps, which leaves me with the dilemma that I don't have enough scraps left over for the inside. Yet the biggest challenge on this card for me was using the twine...which is my crafting nemesis! I think we all have one or two products we don't work well with...do you have anything that you struggle with everytime you try to use it?

Challenges:
Anyone for Anya: July Photo Inspiration
Here Come the Boys: Tag on a Card
Simon Says Stamp: Tags or ATC's

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and for leaving such sweet comments, they always brighten my day.

Ha ha! I use twine on almost everything! I don't play well with flowers!! They never look quite right to me.(and they are darned expensive!) These are both very cute! Lots of summer weddings, can never have too many of those on hand. Love the Ian card! Those are some great layers, and I love the colors too! Super job girly!
