Clean and Simple Weddings

So the hubs and I are on our way to a wedding on the Big Island. I'm fairly sure this is our first wedding of the year. The flurry of weddings we seem to have been going to has died down a bit, which is kinda nice. Dont get me wrong, I like weddings, I just dont like being held hostage for hours at a time. I even thought my own twenty minute ceremony was a trifle bit too long. Sometimes I think I have the attention span of a gnat...or according to my teacher friend, an 8th grader in Math...

In any case, this is the card I made for the happy couple. Its based off a Clean and Simple Sketch. And I gotta say, this card was super easy peasy. No stamping involved. *gasp* I feel like I cheated. But I stamped "happily ever after" on the envelope. And I inked up the flowers myself. That's gotta count for something right? The paper flowers were daubered w/ brilliance starlight black and platinum planet and topped off w/ pearl stickers. I suppose I could've bought some prima flowers, but I have a ton of these plain white paper flowers that are just begging to be used. The DP is from Making Memories Wedding collection. I think they've got a new Wedding collection coming out, but this one I bought a few months ago then totally forgot that I had it.

So its off to the Big Island for me. Ironic really. We're leaving Seattle's 100-plus degree weather for cooler weather in Hawaii. What in the world is up with that???

    So what is it called when you're "stamping" but don't actually stamp to make a card?
