Today I used the Wedding Fhiona single which happens to be one of the new releases for June. I followed the sketch over at Card Patterns, which happens to be a favorite of mine and one I have used variations of many times before. The image was colored with copics and then I added stickles to the tiara part of her veil and then gave her some pearl earrings. I added pearls all along the scalloped border and then a few colored pearls are scattered on the black and white papers. I don't have much ribbon on here ~ only through the buttons on the larger flowers, but it is a black organdy with pink polka dots. Too bad I don't know anyone getting married ~ I really like how this one turned out!
We'd love to have you join us in our "Ribbon" challenge so head on over to the Your Next Stamp blog for all the details ~ it is a two week challenge so there is plenty of time to play along! You

The kids have been enjoying the warmer days this week (what a welcome from early last weeks weather) and spending a lot of time in the pool, which means I have been outside a lot this week with them. Doesn't leave much time for crafting, but when I'm not in the pool with them, I have been making some of the lace flowers like I used on the card posted prior to this one, and have also gotten a lot of reading in. Speaking of weather, we had some major storms come through Monday night and we were lucky ~ we only had heavy rains, but some in surrounding counties didn't fare so well, they had strong winds, causing a lot of damage and some lost homes to tornadoes. That is the one thing I hate about this time of year.
Today should be another nice day, so I'm sure I will be enjoying it with the kids!
Have wonderful day :)
