August Release Project Parade--Day 11





Hi there ladies!! It's Amber here! Are you BLOWN AWAY by the projects so far on this project parade?? I sure am! I am always SO inspired by my team mates, each and every one of them are fabulous and each have a style SO unique that you could see them all in an anonymous gallery and KNOW what card belongs to who, I LOVE that! I am SO lucky to be on this team with these girls. And I'll never have a nicer, sweeter, more lovely "boss" than Julee! And behind every successful woman is a sweet, supporting man right? So of course we love Mark too! Love them all:)

Okay, I'm gushy today, I don't know why, but I guess it's better than being in a BAD mood, lol!


This month, our theme is Something OLD and Something NEW! We've all heard this little rhyme for weddings, but we wanted to pair some OLD favorites with some NEW favorites!

I am LOVING this color combination, I've been using alot of this green lately and I'm not slowing down anytime soon, ha!
I used the super fabulous "Fabulous You" set just released! I just adore the fonts in this set, it's a fun mixture of formal and whimsy. What's not to love?
I also used the fun flourishy circle from Thankful Accents and stamped the flowers from Because of You. I stamped these flowers in Kiwi Kiss and I love how it makes the sentiment pop off the card.
Here's a fun detail shot of some awesome pearl string I found in my craft store on base! It comes in a really long length and I was able to just cut pieces to fit around the square.
And since I'm a sucker for ribbons, bows, flowers, and pearls, here is another fun detail shot:)

Are you ready to play with us? I hope so! There is a HUGE prize in it for you if you do!
