WoW! Busy Me

It's been a crazy week. Hubby's birthday, computer issues and fighting with a doctor's office have really taken away from my time to blog. Right now I'm exhausted but wanted to let you know that Manly Monday will resume next Monday. I have some awesome cards to share with you.
Now onto making this short and sweet. 

I made a few wedding cards this week. This one has a ridiculous amount of photos but I just love the bird cage. I don't love the vellum sentiment only because the adhesive shows through. Maybe if it were on white instead of the gold it would look better. I may alter this one before it goes on the shelves to sell. Background stamp by Hero Arts and sentiment by Lawn Fawn. They are both heat embossed with Versa Mark and Stamp N Plus gold embossing powder. The vellum is self adhesive by Paper Reflections and I used it for the sentiment and the die cut behind the birdcage. That die is by Life Style Crafts. Stickers by Forever in Time,  Jolee's and TPC Studio.

Thanks for looking.

Mark's Finest Papers-Use Vellum


  1. Oh wow this is so glamarous with the gold, but still very elegant. Thats one thing with vellum. Perhaps only use brads to mount the vellum on a project and leave the adhesive out.

  2. Love the sparkly bird cage and the vellum behind it is pretty
    Sorry about the sentiment - glue and vellum is a pain!
