Wedding Season continues . . .

I've been having such a great time crafting today with Sisterhood friend Terri (Terri's Cards n' More),  that I nearly forgot to share the card I made for some of my favorite challenges.

Here's Terri ... I introduced her to 'stencilling' today ... YEP!  Now she's hooked!   She also made some fabulous cards which she'll be sharing on her blog later today/this week.  We also watched a few videos (to refresh our feeble minds) on using the Elizabeth Crafts products and made some pretty awesome background for future creations.

We just never know what we're going to get into when we get together and today it was stencils and glitter.  AND, NOW I REMEMBER why I don't do much with loose glitter!  YEP ... it's everywhere ... LOL!  Oh well ... we sure had fun and learned a few things along the way!

ANYWAYS ... Here's the card I'd like to share with you . . .

The challenges I had in mind when creating this card are as follows:
Joan's Touch #17 - Black & White + Dimension + Scallops + Product sold at Joan's Garden
Classy Cards n Such #36 - Make a Background

I have to admit I've gotten hooked on making these little flowers.  They are actually supposed to be gardenias but mine somehow look more like roses!  Either way they are so easy and look so fabulous ... especially on a special occasion card like this Wedding card.  (All dies used are listed below.)
And, of course you have to add some sparkle so I've added Diamond Stickles to the flowers as well as the background for the bride & groom.

Here's an even closer look of the sparkle placement.

Well, play time is over ... Terri has headed back home to make dinner for her hubby and I guess I'd better start thinking about doing the same here.  I'll be back a little later to share in a few other challenges.

Die Cut Diva's June Challenge - Yours, Mine or Ours?  (Ours - Wedding) [entry #2]

My Time to Craft - No Design Paper (stencil for background) [entry #3]
CCEE Stampers - Roses
ScrapbookerPhD Challenge #11 - Use your die cuts

Sugar Creek Hollow #88 - Here Comes the Bride

I hope you've enjoyed seeing and been inspired by today's creation and will come join in these fun challenges.  OH and wanted to mention ... the stencil I used seemed sorta small for the background panel with this beautiful Marianne die set so I simple repositioned the stencil (once the original inking was done) around the outside border and sponged away ... gave it an entirely different look (almost zebra like, lol) and I like it!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you've had as good a time today as I have!
Aren't FRIENDS FABULOUS!!!  I'm so blessed!
