You and Me - Belli Wedding & Some exciting news

Pretty exciting post for me today.  A few weeks ago I won a challenge at the Creative Belli Blog.  This means I am the Guest Designer on their current Challenge #144 and.... are you ready for this....I have been asked to join the Design Team....wooohooo!  I'm the new Belli Girl !!   Thank you so much for this opportunity and Darsie, you're lovely...thank you, thank you!  I am so impressed on how well this challenge is managed and look forward to working with the talented women on the team.

I have chosen a Tiddly Inks digital stamp called You and Me for this card. The arch was made with the Spellbinders Layered Elegant Swirl die.  I find I'm using that a lot lately.  Flowers are WOC and I've been hoarding that delicious ribbon for about 4 years now.  I only bought a wee bit of it at the time because of the cost and added Fray Block to the cut ends to prevent fraying.   The 2 hearts die was borrowed from a very good friend and is called Love Language from Cuttlebug.  Diamond Dust was applied to add some bling.  DP is English Rose Collection from Kaisercraft.

Inside is decorated as well.

Skin:  E11, E000, E000, R20
Dress:  E50, E51, E53
Suit:  C7, C5, C3, C1
Hair:  E21, E29, E25, E23

This card is going to a friend who asked me to make a wedding card for July.  I asked her in advance the hair colours of the bride and groom and that's what determined the brown hair.

I will be entering this card into the Tiddly Inks Challenge #87 which is asking for flowers, Party Time Tuesday #70 is Anything Goes, My Time to Craft #180 is 2 of something the same and I think the hearts will work here.  Incy Wincy Designs has a vintage theme and Kaboodle Doodles theme is Anything Goes so this card will fit these as well.  Make it Monday #91 - anything goes as always.  I will link these up shortly.

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.  Hugs, Pat K.

Congratulations on your DT selection and your gorgeous card. I just found your blog and was intrigued by your name. I too live in Ontario in a house built by a Kozenko and shop at a butcher shop owned by his cousin, another Kuzenko. It's a small world.

Another beautiful card, Pat! Love the embellies and papers and the image is one of my all time faves :-) Congratulations on your "DT news", well deserved I say. Re posting my Dick Van Duck image; In Photoshop I saved it as a .png with a transparent background then erased around the image (using the magic wand)... really easy to do, glad you liked it :-) Donna ☺
