~ A New Life ~

Good morning, Friends!

Although a few flakes are flying this morning, I am optimistic that spring is on it’s way.    With the dawning of spring comes the beginning of wedding season.   I love weddings.   Call me old fashioned, but weddings signal the beginning of a new life.  Yes, I cry.

Today’s Ways to Use It challenge is to use something NEW or if you have nothing new,  make a card/project that indicates the beginning or newness of something.

I managed to include both.   Not only did I use the NEW Make a Wish set from There She Goes, I made my first wedding card of the year.   Now I just need to get invited to a wedding!


The vertical black piece is actually scored diagonally, but that just would not show up in my picture.


Here are my deets:

Stamps:  There She Goes‘ Make A Wish

Colors: GP White, Basic Black, Regal Rose

Ink: Versafine Black Onyx, copics

Accessories: Ribbon (From Sharon Johnson’s Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), 1/2 pearls (pink and white), scoring blade, photo corner punch, eyelet border punch, dimensionals, scalloped circle punch, circle punch, embossing folder


Thanks for stopping by today.   I hope you all have a blessed day!

    Oh Holly…. this is GORGEOUS! Seriously, so elegant and striking… That bow is perfect – do you use a Bow Easy? Those pearls and domes are the perfect accent. WOW! A true stunner!
