Wedding Wishes for Play Date Cafe & VLV

I was able to create a few cards on Saturday while Hubby was at work, so I do have a few leftover cards to share with you this week, even if I won’t be creating much that’s new.  I figured I would post quickly before lessons this morning so the letdown from the end of my 31 Days isn’t so harsh. LOL!

Or, maybe I’m just in the habit of posting every day now….  Which will be sad when I run out of cards to post tomorrow. ;-D

Today’s card uses the colors from the Play Date Cafe Challenge #105 and the Viva La Verve sketch for October Week 5:

While we were out and about driving somewhere a few days ago, I took along a spool of tulle and some thread, and attempted to make a little flower.  I think it turned out pretty well.  But I had a bit of a time trying to find a brad or centerpiece that would work with it and keep it attached to the card.  I ended up using a little circle of cardstock behind it and hot gluing the two layer of tulle, then also gluing the little beaded ensemble sticker you see there.

It’s more bulky than I’d like, but I can certainly still use this card even if mailing it is a little more of a hassle.  And I could always hand deliver it, as well.

Here are the challenge photos:

I know the card is supposed to be square, I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t do it.  Too much brain power needed to do that, and I was definitely lacking brain power last week.

Thanks for stopping by today. šŸ˜‰  (Can you believe it’s November already?!  Ack!!!)
