Use it Tuesday Challenge

I really needed to do some housework today but my mojo has definitely taken over today.  Earlier this morning I saw that my friend France had made the most beautiful tag, with the theme "Indian Summer" in mind, for the "Use it Tuesday" challenge blog.  I thought then that I could come up with something using one of my other favourite packs of Stampin' Up Speciality DSP, Sweet & Sour.  But then the thought dissappeared and as I don't usually get time to make cards for challenges, I suppose I thought I wouldn't manage it and continued to think about my cleaning!

But after the little race I had earlier with Debs, I felt in the swing of things and decided to make a wedding card for one of my friends daughters who is getting married a week on Sat and enter the challenge with it.  Here it is, enjoy..................

I have used Peach Parfait (I'm right out of Pumkin Pie!) and Rose Red Stampin' Up card stock, with Rose Red ink and paper from the Speciality DSP Sweet and Sour, which I thought was just perfect for the Indian Summer theme.  I've also used Stampin' Up stamps from the sets Occasional Quotes (level 3 hostess) and the initials are from Broadsheet Alphabet.  I have used a mini paper clip (from Stampin' Up Clips assortment) with a piece of Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon tied onto it.  The whole project is finished off with Basic Pearls (wish we could call them "the best ever Pearls!)

Lets hope the weather will hold out for the day of their wedding and let that Indian Summer theme continue for them.

Hope you have enjoyed another post from me today.
