Hello Everybody~~ Hope you are all having a great week and now weekend!!
We have a family wedding today :)

I was so EXCITED this week cuz my co-worker asked me if I would make a card for her parents 25th wedding anniversary ~~~she really wants to WOW them!!  I was deeply touched and  honored~~Yeah :D 

I am using my new LOTV --Occasions Wedding couple stamp~~Just the most Adorable!!!

25th Wedding Anniversary Card:
Used this sketch from Friday Sketchers: 

Here they are~~this very sweet couple!!  Colored with Copics. Used Oyster Twinkling H2O on bride's dress--diamond glaze on groom's shoe to give patent leather look and on bride's flowers.  Diamond stickles accented her dress also! Added alittle gold spica in her hair :)

Front of Easel Card:  The flourish on the heart is Imaginisce Glitter Giggles Rub Ons--they are absolutely Gorgeous to work with!!

Close up of embellishments!!  I made my bow with my new Bow Easy~~have to tell you that after reading about it on many blogs--I decided to order one and  GUESS WHAT~~It is the BOMB!!!!

Inside message area--cut out with SB and inked edges with TH Spun sugar and then added a few Imaginisce Glitzy Giggles Rub ons!!
Lower area is all dimensionalized to hold card nicely and edged with stardust stickles.
The sentiment is on vellum which is taped to pink CS.
Small heart and sentiment all popped up with foam tape.

This pic shows shimmer and shine of paper, H2O, glaze, stickles etc!!
