My friends son was married a couple weeks ago and this is the card I made.  Of course I took the picture just before putting it into the envelope and so it was long gone before I viewed them on my computer, which is the way it typically goes, and I didn't have one good picture in the bunch, this was as good as I got :(  I used Christmas paper for the background but I thought it worked great for a wedding card too.

Anna Griffin -- Christmas scrapbook cardstock pack paper and background die
K&co. -- Elegance Hearts and flowers 3-D stickers
Fiskars -- Just married quotes stamp
Forever in time -- Pearls (on the die cut frame)

We are having some company this weekend, my husbands childhood friend is coming to visit he is back in the states, he is a missionary, it will be so good to catch up.

Hope you are all well and enjoying your week, summer is quickly coming to a close so we need to enjoy it all while we can.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and would love to hear from you,

Lovely, Connie! I'll bet this is the prettiest thing in real life, because it looks pretty in the photo and you say this is a bad photo. I know how that goes. I rely heavily on photo editing software. Enjoy your visit with your hubby's friend.

Oh, dear Connie, you delight us so! What a gorgeous wedding card, and I agree with's a beautiful photo and surely is prettier IRL as most cards are. I too use photo editing (GIMP) to help with photos. But I love the die and the beautiful sentiment! They surely loved it along with the note your wrote inside. Enjoy the time with missionary friends! Hugs!

Ahhh Connie how frustrating is it to have only a poor shot of your beautifully made creation.

If using digital,which I assume you are, I (if I remember) double check an image by looking at it close up on the screen, using the zoom on preview screen... If you get the idea. It has made a difference before to me, as I tend to get things in post at thelast minute it's a great to have.

Lovely use of dies and we know it looked even more beautiful IRL.
