A Wedding Card & Some Pix

Hi there friends!! I had thought about pre-posting some articles for viewing while on vacation, but before we left on vacation, I did 2 pre-post articles and neither one posted - go figure! So I decided not to worry about it...but I'm back and have tons of things to share.

First we'll start with the wedding card I made for hubby's niece; this is what started our vacation - a wedding in beautiful Montana (after a quick trip through the Grand Tetons National Park, Yellowstone National Park & the capitol of Montana)!

Also a first for me...a CLEAR CARD. WOOT! WOOT! Tooting my horn since I've never made one before. LOL

I asked hubby a few times what their wedding colors were and never got an answer, so the night before we left I'm throwing this thing together. It's rather hard to hide all your adhesive in a clear card; ya know? Her colors were pink and green; so I hit it on the nail when I chose pink. I used Hibiscus Burst & Raspberry Fizz from Papertreyink. The white on the outside of the card is a rub-on from Stampin' Up; I think it looks really cool...IMHO.

The cake is also from Papertreyink (Piece of Cake) and is stamped 2nd generation in Hibiscus Burst, the flowers are stamped in Raspberry Fizz and then covered with glitter. The half back pearls were the "perfect pink" to match the card. I loved making the card; I hope they enjoyed the sweet little gift ($$$) inside the card!

Now on to some vacation pictures; I'll be posting these along with my creations for the next week or so (we took a LOT of pictures...what I find really funny? All 5 of us have cameras, no I won't subject you to ALL those pix, just the ones I took - LOL).
