Ah, June! (A wedding CAS)

It's that time of the year again! I'm at an odd age. My friends have been married (and some married and unmarried) for quite some time, but our kids aren't at that age just yet. Still, here in the South, where, until the recession really hit, there was a teacher shortage, so we still get to enjoy some of the younger girls' excitement with weddings and new babies. Got to keep some cards in the stash for those!

So, a CAS for such an event:

Yikes. I'm having such trouble with the camera. I can have decent lighting, or I can have focus, but I can't have both.  Right now, it would seem I can't have either. BTW, the ribbon is white, not pink.

It goes with the challenges at:
Charisma Cardz Challenge - White + one other color
CAS-ual Fridays - "Getting Edgy" - Use a border punch
Speedy the Cat's Challenge - at Mark's Finest Papers - Make it Sparkle

The recipe:
Stamps - Studio G (from the dollar bin at Michaels)
Embossing folder - Quickkutz (I think.) Dots are CB.
Edge punch - Martha Stewart
Die cut - Spellbinders Nestie
Ribbon - Really Reasonable Ribbon
Flowers, again from the Michael's bin

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and please come again soon! Enjoy your Saturday! (Maybe yours has a wedding in it! *Sigh*)
