Confetti Wedding

FINALLY! I actually followed through on something I 'pinned' on Pinterest! I saw a card with this general idea on Pinterest. If you are new to my blog you probably won't know that making wedding cards is not a favorite past time for me. In reality it strikes fear into me! Well fear or not I found myself needing a wedding card for two of 'my' former students. I was honored to receive the invitation and even though I rarely use cards I make I decided I would make an exception! Here's to Jordon and Becca!

When making a wedding card - I tend to go for the non-traditional cards. Previous posts with wedding topics: Wedding Weeds; Channeling My Muse; With This Ring; Frued and a Cup of Java; Magic and Marriage; Even I Can Use an Apron; and one of my favorites - He, She, and Nerves of Steal.

So is it fun or disturbing to click back through old posts? I think it is fun but WOW...I have moments of "oh I really liked that card"; "I wonder what ever happened to that card"; "what was I thinking when I made that atrocity and why did I ever post it".....
