Our challenge this month features not only one of these amazing cartridges but we also have a Wedding theme. There are so many weddings this time of year! Do you have any weddings coming up?
I chose to redo this picture frame. It had a picture of my husband and myself on our wedding day. Our
kids had done a number on the frame, and I thought it could a little sprucing up.
I took black card stock and I raced the frame onto it. I cut out the image and used liquid glass to glue it to the frame. I used a sanding block to sand all of the edges, which gave the paper and aged look. cut the Mr & Mrs and the silver hearts (silver heart border is glitter paper) from the Artiste cartridge The flowers are cut from Art Philosophy.
For this hop we will be featuring the letter J. This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.

For my "J" project, I have to admit I had an issue coming up with a "J" project, then I remembered
I had CTMH's Posh Journaling Spots, and I had my "J" item! I decided to use them for the front of my card. I used ruby card stock for the backround, and patterned paper from the For Always paper pack. The red flower was cut from ruby card stock using my Art Philosphy cricut cartridge. the saying is the zip strip from the top of one of the patterned papers. I layered it with ruby card stock. I finished my card with sparkles.
Thanks for stopping by!

For my card, I stamped the large pinwheel in gypsy ink, the striped pinwheel in smoothie, and the small
pinwheel in pear. Between all of the layers is a pop dot, with a sparkle in the middle of the green. The pinwheel "stick" is a piece of grey baker's twine. The butterflies are from the color-ready trinkets wooden shapes. "You make my world go 'round" is stamped in gypsy pigment ink.
All items are Close To My Heart:
Grey card stock
