Cantaloupe Bride for The Paper Players #198

Welcome, my Stamping Friends! Today I have the fine honor of being hostess at The Paper Players! This week it's a theme challenge, and since June is such a big month for weddings, I chose "Wedded Bliss" as my theme. I'm actually a June bride myself! Any other June brides out there? 

I'm still working on showing you my favorite retiring Stampin' Up Stamp Sets, and Love & Laughter is my absolute favorite for weddings. It can be used for cards, scrapbook pages, favors and so many other things! It's great for anniversaries, too! 

I'm crazy over this beautiful wedding gown, and it looks so pretty embossed in white. The Ruffled Ribbon seems to have been made for the hem, too! The Designer Frames and Framed Tulips Embossing folders are also retiring, boo hoo! 

I've been trying to make more of a point to "finish off" my cards when I make them, that is to complete the inside and envelope so they are ready to go when I need them!

I couldn't WAIT to comment on this card, I just love it so much! My favorite color, a beautiful image, especially embossed in white, and I, too, am trying to remember to stamp the inside of my cards before they go in my card box....saves so much time! A perfectly lovely card and a wonderful challenge!

Sandy, I love this. I love the touch of pink on the embossed layer. The white embossing on the white is gorgeous. A really beautiful wedding card.

Sandy this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the embossed dress, the ruffle trim, the sweet little corsage--it's all just beautiful! Happy anniversary month to you! ((hugs))

This is just adorable, with the embossed edges, the dress and the organza ribbon.
