Gosh, these pics are from 1987.  My good friend Paula got married and since I was as big as a house pregnant...she asked me to be her Brides Attendent.  I think I was about 7 1/2 months along at the time.  Anyways, I ran across these pics and decided they need a page.

I tried something a little different this time, I cut thin strips of green cardstock and wound them tightly around a thin round filing tool and stretched them out.  Using Zots tiny dots to each end help them stay put. 

Inkadinkado stamps in the corner with dots of green stickles around the boat load of flowers.

The background is DCWV white core paper that I distressed and inked.  There are papers from My Mind's Eye and DCWV and a few others.  All the brads are from the Paper Studio.  Even Martha Stewarts vine punch made it on this lo.

Make a Wish Card

This card and one almost just like it (different ribbon) was made for my 2 nephews who just had birthdays!  I'm really loving this kraft paper for cards and layouts!  Starting cards are somewhat of a dilema for me - I usually end up picking one thing I want to play with and go from there - with no real plan in mind.  This time, it was the cupcake stamps and copic markers. {I've starting buying the sketch markers to use with - wait for it - the airbrush system that uses copic markers for ink}  It's on my wish list as practically "a need"  ha ha

I used one of those clever lever to punch out the stamped image and then spellbinders nestabilities for the larger scalloped circle.  Martha and her wonderful punches helped pretty this card up.  I punched the border and used my trimmer to make the width 3/4 inch.  This gave me room for my super skinny rickrack and stamped sentiment. Both circles fit on a 3 1/2 inch square and all of this was inked with colorbox ink.   A little touch of crystal stickles for the sprinkles and dots beside the sentiment finishes it off.
