I don't care what anyone says, when you're in the baseball world, wedding season is not in the summer, it's between late October and January.  The reason why is because baseball season is during the summer, and when your husband has a baseball game every single day (literally, one off day per 28-31 days!), there's really no time to have a wedding or honeymoon!  So the couple who I made the engagement card for awhile back  (Jay, Topher's teammate and his fiancee Jenny) just got married up in Washington, and we made them a congratulations card using their wedding colors.  The stamp is a digital stamp from The Greeting Farm collection, the heart and just married sign are from the Sweethearts cartridge.

I used the Martha Stewart scor-board to give a subtle border to the card as well as made a envelope for it.  For the envelope I just used regular white cardstock and patterned paper from Hobby Lobby.  

I colored the background behind the couple with a pale pale pink copic (I believe it was 000) and popped the flower in her hair.  I outlined her wedding dress with stickles to give it some sparkly (when I make a card for a girl I jump at the chance to use stickles!).  The couple are very blonde blonde, (her moreso then him) so I decided to color them in to reflect that.

I printed a sentiment on red cardstock using my computer and glued it to the inside.  The lentils comment is because their hometown is known for Lentils!    Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it!  Here's a picture of the beautiful couple!

Birthday for my niece who turned 6!  She lives in San Diego and had a pirate mermaid party so I decided to make her card with that theme.  The stamps are from The Greeting Farm, Pirate Ian and Mermaid Anya.  I colored them in with Copics and popped dotted them up on two backgrounds that were digital papers that I don't remember where I got it from.  I did a terrible job stamping happy birthday and the ribbon was plain white ribbon that I colored with Copics to match the paper.

Each of the stamps were fussy cut after I colored them.  I colored the mermaid's hair to mimic my niece's hair and I stickled some strands of gold and added adhesive gems where the pearls were to give it some interest.  I stickled her shells and her tail to add more sparkly since every little girl loves glitter!  

Here's he birthday girl with her cake!
