Freshly Made Sketch #36

Hi guys,

I just found another cool challenge site and anyone who knows me well knows I enjoy challenges and love to stalk challenge blogs even if I don't get an opportunity to make the card I design in my head I still enjoy looking at all the ideas that everyone else comes up with too. Anyway I got to work on the following sketch this week.

My partners brother is getting married. I am so happy for him and his partner. They are great people. They have also asked me to make there wedding invites which I am so excited about. I went to there engagement party on Saturday night and had an absolute blast. Here is the card I created for them. I tweaked the sketch slightly which I don't usually do but I love how the card turned out. 

Stamp Set: Creative Elements, A word for you
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette Prints DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Early Espresso
Accessories: Beautiful butterflies die, crumb cake seam binding, Antique Brads, Dimensionals

Also a little bit of news to share, Not only is my brother and my BIL getting married but as of 2 1/2 weeks ago... SO AM I! So I now have 3 sets of invites to create and my own wedding to plan. So excited, I cannot wait!
