Something Old & Something New

Here's a card featuring my favorite "old" 07-08 in-color, Purely Pomegranate along with my favorite "new" 08-09 in-color, Pink Pirouette!! I also used the new DP, Bella Rose (love, love, love that paper!!!). We'll be saying goodbye to the 07-08 in-colors on August 10th, so it's time to stock up on anything that you can't live without. I really appreciate getting a few weeks to work with both the old and the new in-colors...gives me a better idea of exactly what I need to stock up on as it retires. The retired SU accessory list was released today, if you'd like to see it, just email me & I'd be happy to pass it along! BTW, if you want to see a close-up of the image, just double click on the photo.
This card is for my nephew Bobby & his new bride Ashley : ) !!! They were married in May and will be in town this week for a wedding reception! I'm helping with the party planning and decorating...one of my favorite things to do! Bobby's in the Airforce and has been stationed in Florida, but he and his new bride will be heading to his new base in England after the reception. What a fun & exciting time for them!!

The inspiration for the layout of my card came from the Great Swaps Girls blog...the featured swapper this week is Arin Burdo! You can read all about Arin right HERE and see the card I cased from her wonderful SCS gallery right HERE!!

I'm trying out a new template for my blog...what do you think? I may change it back or to something entirely different. I've been blogging for about 8 months now and decided it was just time for a change!
Here are the Copics Markers I used to color the bride & groom : ) ~
Supplies for today's card: Stamps ~ To have and to hold Paper: Pomegranate, Pink Pirouette & White cardstock, Bella Rose DP Ink: Brilliance Graphite, Purely Pomegranate Accessories: Scallop edge punch, flowers from the Pretties kit, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 1/4" white gg ribbon, Kaiser self adhesive pink rhinestones, Copic Markers
Thanks for looking : ) ... have a MARVELOUS Monday !!!
