Blushing Bride Blog Hop and Twisted Thursday #61

June is for BRIDES!

Are you ready for a walk down the aisle with S2G and some FABULOUS new bride images?

Going to the Chapel. . . 
and we're gonna get married!

The S2G DT is having a Blushing Bride Blog Hop! This one is all about that Special Day in a 'girl's' life! It's ALL about Weddings, Showers, Brides, & LOVE! 

S2G has created a bunch of NEW Digital Stamps just the occasion. If you came here from my fabulous friend Cat's Blog then you're in the right place. If not, then you should head over to the S2G Challenge Blog and start from the beginning.

Boy the girls have created  a "Bridesmaid"..."Church"..."The Couple" Digital Stamp & so much more!  You seriously DO NOT want to miss this Spectacular Blog Hop! 

S2G is giving away 2 Prizes for this BH. One will be the GRAND PRIZE...which consists of 3 of our NEW Bride Digital Stamps, some Bride Clear Stamps,lots of ribbon, inks, embellies, DPS,  glitter & some other fab girly-blingy things!  The second prize will be the pick of 2 of our NEW Bride Digital Stamps.

Are you ready to see my card??? I used a fun layout called an EASEL CARD. I just love these type cards. They are so easy and fun to make. My card is measured at 4 1/4 x 8 1/2. It's scored at 4 1/4 and at 6 3/8. My card base is neenah classic solar white. I used some DP that I got from hobbylobby and some silver cardstock. The image that I used is called "The Couple" from S2G's digi selections over at shirleys2girls web store. I used my scallop nesties for my border around the image and colored with my copics. THANK YOU to my fab friend Jane for helping me get the right colors with my copics for the grooms tux. I had never blended my grays to make black. I think it came out pretty good for my first try! What do you think? My "old" for the twist this week are the pretty filigree buttons on the base. You can't see them very well but they are pearlish and silverish in color and worked really with my colors. I tied a white organza ribbon around the side. I just love how this came out and hope you enjoyed viewing my project today.

Your next and last stop along the blog hop, will be my FABULOUS friend Georgia. Head over to her blog to see her awesome project.  We hope that you have enjoyed our hop down the aisle!

Don't forget to play along with the Twisted Thursday Challenge #61. The Twist this week is to use something "OLD" on your card. You do not have to use a specific image, just make sure to use something old. Head over to shirleys2girls challenge blog   blog to play along with us. 

Digi Hugs,
Deb

Stunning Card!!!!! Beautifully done!! If the DT cards don't cause these new images to go flying out of the store I don't know what would. The images are awesome to start with but what you Ladies have done with them is FANTASTIC!!! Thank You for participating in the Hop.

You did not need to worry about the coloring, it looks great.
And this digi is supre cute. I like that the couple looks so young and modern. And the card is beautiful. Im a big fan of the b&w look (with a splash of pink).
Thanks for the inspiration. It got my creative mojo going.
