"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

BELLA BLEU WEDDING / PEC #37...


Cards for weddings are always fun... I actually made this one last night...


... but apparenlty Blogger thought I needed to go to bed at 1 am instead & refused to let me upload my pics! I did need the sleep... and couldn't believe it had gotten so late!


We have a wedding this weekend & I thought this week's Pink Elephant Challenge sketch was too perfect for this card! I saw this 'cake' on someone's blog yesterday & thought it was so smart looking, I really do wish I could remember where I saw it... if you think I saw it on your blog, please email me or leave a comment!


I used Bella Bleu DSP, which I actually bought for this card... so pretty! The 'cake' is made from Whisper White card stock that I embossed with a texture plate inked with So Saffron. Actually I inked the plate once and ran 2 sheets of card stock through. I used the second sheet that I embossed, since the color was closer to Very Vanilla at that point. I then punched 3 different squares out, rounded the top edges, and glued them together. Then I used the grosgrain ribbon to edge the bottoms of each layer. I popped the whole 'cake ' up on dimensionals, then added the Prima flowers & placed pearls at the center of each.


Thanks so much for looking!

Oh I have had such a busy weekend and have only just had time to do my favourite job of checking out our entries this week. Lori and Robin are in charge of choosing our top ten so don’t worry you didn’t loose your chance there.
Love your card - those colours work so well together - hope you’ll have chance to have a play in today’s new challenge which is a recipe ‘Black - distressing and hardware’ - a fun one to start the week methinks.
