On This Day

Today I went to a wedding.  I gave the bride and groom this card which is my Bella Creations design team work for the June Bella Muse Challenge.


Our muse is the image provided.  This month it's the happy couple on loan to us from the private collection of  our design team member Sandi McLean.


Each of the 12x12 Pink Paisley Butterfly Garden patterned papers (including the doily which I fussy cut) the flower, button, pearlized trim, ribbon, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type, and the exclusive die cut butterfly are ALL FROM the June Bella Creations main kit, Heavenly. This kit is still available in limited supply at our Bella Creations blog.


Any form of art is accepted for the challenge.  I chose to make a sidestep card using my score board and coordinating deep green card stock from my stash for the base. Here is a side view of the sidestep card:


Each month we have a sponsor for the challenge who gives a fantastic prize. Winner is selected by random draw.  This month the sponsor is Apron Strings.  I also have their badge/link up on my sidebar. Here is their prize for this challenge. 


You have until the end of the month to enter you art using our June couple.  Their story needs to be told.  Submit your entry in the Bella Muse challenge section of the Forum at Bella Creations.  

I'm also entering this card in my cyber friend Vicki Romaine's challenge over at her blog The Cheerful Stamp Pad.   Her challenge is a card for a special reason.

This is sublime in every way. It would be safe to say that this would be the most special card the Happy Couple received.
I need to have a look at this image at Bellas. I am so far behind with Bellas these days which is annoying for me.
