Caardvark's Challenge - Wedding & CARDS

The Best Is Yet to Be

Stamps: Hero Arts CG129 Heart Frame
Stampin Up Sentiment Stamp
PP: Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses Line!)
White CS, Vellum, Ribbon, Bordering Blue Ink: Stampin Up
Textured CS: Bazzill Basics
White embossing Powder
Metal Bride & Groom Champagne Flutes Charm


The challenge this round over at Caardvark's is to create a Wedding Card - doing your best work and taking a great photo. I'm afraid the photo part will sink me.. I still just have my itty bitty HP Photosmart R827 (7.2 megapixels, 3x optical zoom). It's a point and shoot number. I asked Santa for my dream camera.. but alas, I must have been dreaming!

See those little champagne flutes? They are engraved with bride and groom.. Alas, I zoomed in on them, and no luck getting the fine print.

Have you ever seen the CARDS magazine? Awesome photos! Awesome close-ups on some of the details..

A girl can dream...

Oh. And the winning card will get published in Scrapbook Trend's CARDS Magazine (Northridge Media).

I just had to play! sure there will be a bazillion entries - not only is CARDS one of the hottest magazines, the Caardvark's Challenges are a HOT site to play at!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Andi- Gorgeous entry!!! I was asked to make a wedding card this past week and came across the challenge too - so I joined in - but I had posted my blog post w/o mentioning Caardvarks - oops! But, I entered anyway. I don't have a desire to be published but I do enjoy the challenges!!
