World Card Making Day & Peggy's Wedding Day

Good morning and Happy World Card Making Day, everybody!!

My card today is for this lovely 'holiday' and also for our PWCO lady boss, Peggy. Our super fabulous boss is getting married today, and I was in charge of writing up a congratulatory blog post for her at PaperWorks Company.

Of course, I had to make her a card featuring her wedding colors. The wedding is in Hawaii so the colors are bright and tropical! I just love them! They are currently my fave color combo. In fact, my wedding colors are very similar (pink, orange, green) and we had our honeymoon in Hawaii as well!

Because it's WCMD, a bunch of the DTs are each writing up a challenge on the PWCO blog. Every two hours, starting with mine at 10 AM MST, there will be a total of six challenges, the last one ending at 8 PM MST. There'll be a Mr. Linky at the end of each post so people could enter in their projects.

The Linkys will be open until 11:59 PM MST on Friday, October 7. PWCO Images are not required, however, if you use them, you will be entered into the drawings twice. You may enter as many cards/projects as you like, in as many of the challenges as you like. Saturday, October 8, one winner from each challenge will be randomly drawn to win a $5 PWCO Gift Certificate!! (So that's 6 GCs that are up for grabs!)

For my challenge, make a card featuring Peggy's wedding colors of:

An optional part of this challenge would also be to try stamping with a light-colored ink (meaning no black lines). For those of you who haven't seen this technique before, I have more information on this blog post (when I first tried it).

The image came out really soft here -- not sure if it's because the colors I used were light as well. It's really challenging but a lot of fun when you see the results. Hope you join in on our fun at PWCO.

Supplies used:

Stamp- PWCO/ RAM The First Kiss.
CS- Bazzill. Neenah Solar White.
PP- Echo Park.
Stickers (banners)- Crate Paper.
Pearls- Martha Stewart.
Misc.- Copics. Fabric flower.
Ink- Ippity (Unity).
Sentiment- handwritten w/ copic multiliner.

This is so absolutely adorable, Rinne!! The couple are so cute they make me sigh in their bliss! I love all the ruffles! What a gorgeous card!!

I'm home now, a little exhausted, from a two week trip out West to visit several National Parks and gorgeous cities! I didn't want to post it on my blog so opportunistic thieves didn't get any ideas ;)

Thank you so much my sweet friend for stopping by my blog while I was gone! I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! I apologize in advance for inundating your inbox, but I have to see all of your projects that I missed while I was gone :)
