Wedding Bells Are Ringing...

Thanks for popping by! It's that time of year...the wedding season is soon coming!!


My niece, Michelle, is getting married in August and I couldn't be more happy for her and Micah! I'm getting a head start on her by making her this card. I found the DP at Archivers and immediately had to come home and start working on it.


It's a little hard to see all the shimmer and shine. I have a funny story about my feathers. I have been looking everywhere, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. for small white feathers and I haven't found any, there was only large ones that were way too big for cards. So I finally gave up and then I had an idea!! I raided my feather pillow for feathers!! Now I have all that I need and I still have a nice fluffy pillow! So, the moral of my story...look for the unexpected and you will find your answer!


Now for the nitty gritty...
