Summer Wedding Card -- Orange, Lace and Roses

Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays “Celebrate Summer” blog hop!

This is stop #14 on the hop; you should have arrived here from Sally's blog.
If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.

You can also join the “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week as usual. Ann of Raindrop Echo Designs is sponsoring the hop, with a prize of four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection.

Your next stop on the hop is Tammy Louise.  If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th. So, hop on over to the next stop and good luck!

So, with all the housekeeping out of the way, here's my summery wedding card:

  19. I never would of thought to use orange for a wedding card. I adore orange papers and never use it for anything but Halloween. This card is fabulous. I would have kept it as a glorious keepsake if it were given to me at my wedding. The orange also makes it just masculine enough to be appropriate for both the groom and bride. Most wedding cards are quite feminine. Yours is the perfect mix.

  20. Beautiful! Love the color combo and layering. Embellishing great! TFS joy4umetoo at hotmail dot com
