It's WEDDING month . . .

. . . and even though I don't have any weddings to attend this month, I do have a wedding card to share with you today!

Good Monday Morning friends!

The challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Wonderful Weddings".  Since I didn't have a particular theme or color of any upcoming weddings, I thought it best to stick with white-on-white for today's creation.

I wish you could see the sparkle on this card ...  I've added Diamond Stickles to all the butterfly wings as well as on the straight edge of the lacy borders.  And, the ribbon is sheer with just a little shimmer to it. Here's a close up that hopefully you can see that detail . . .

I think this lacy border and the butterflies are some of my all time favorite Cheery Lynn Design dies.  

Other challenges for this creation are:
Catered Crop - Die Cuts and Punches
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Crafty Calender June Challenge - Things with Wings
Animal Friends Challenge - Butterflies and/or Bugs
Scrap It Girl - Use your Dies
Crafty Catz #188 -  Pick and Mix (I chose Anything Goes AND Embossing)
Wags 'n Whiskers - Wedding/Anniversary/Love
 Happy Campers - White on White
Little Red Wagon - No Pattern Paper
Pollycraft Challenge - Anything Goes
Inky Chicks #6 - Love
Fashionista Challenge - Wedding or Birthday

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!  
It's supposed to be really hot and rainy here in NE Ohio this week, and if so, I'll be spending some quality time in my 'crafting cave'! 
 What ever you are doing today ... ENJOY!  And, as always ...
