Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge





Yay for Wednesday and halfway through the week!


Yay for Papertrey's May Blog Hop!


I'm glad I didn't miss it this month, I am so disappointed when I do!



I created a wedding card today~



(stamps:Movers & Shakers sentiment set  dies:Papertrey Ink Songbirds/Movers & Shakers:Spinners die for stenciling,My Favorite Things Horizontal Stitched Strips)





These birds were cut from a rainbow I previously stenciled, based on Lizzie's tutorial for Make It Monday #248.

 I didn't throw it away, but kept it for a rainy day.

I'm so glad I did, because when I saw Nichole's  inspiration, the rainbow of colors drew my eye to that scrap rainbow panel sitting on my desk.

The fact that my rainbow looked like popsicle sticks, didn't escape me either. :)

To add the greeting,
I masked "rainbows" off of a larger sentiment in Movers & Shakers, and paired it with a grey cursive font which is in the same set.

This mimicks the font of the inspiration photo.

Here's a card I finished from that rainbow panel of "popsicle sticks"

 (nothing goes to waste here guys)~

I textured a white panel behind the open birds with the Herringbone Impression Plate.

As for the "wedding" sentiment, it's from Bitty Baby Blessings.
 

Thanks for hopping by to say hi~
