Traveler's Inspiration 4 & CardPatterns 25 Challenges

Mike and I are going to a wedding of our friends from college this weekend. We are so excited to see them get married, and we are also excited because it will be a reunion of sorts. So many college friends will be there that we haven't seen in a while, so we are really excited!

I needed to make them a card, so I decided to get inspiration from TravelingMama's challenge and my first time participating in CardPatterns. I seriously love TravelingMama's blog, and her challenges are amazing. How incredible is that picture?! I wish I was there right now! :)
ETA: I almost forgot to say that I was also inspired by the colors and pattern of the bright and breezy tote for the Moxie Fab bag lady challenge! Gotta love the name of that challenge!

So, this is officially the busiest card I have ever made. It is very out of style for me, but I do like it. I have THE hardest time with wedding cards. I don't know why, but I just do. I really hope our friends like the card!

I also seem to have an addiction to dots and flowers. I can't stop! The vine on the left side is a Quickutz Silhouette design. I love it!

Well, it is time to keep working. We are leaving tomorrow morning, and I have more work to do. Ugh! It never ends sometimes, huh?! I can't wait for the festivities to come! :)

  1. Oh they will love it! Super cute card and don't you just love Ali Edwards stamps? I love all of her stamps... I use that celebrate sentiment a lot! Well... I say a lot but... more than most of my stamps get used!

  2. This is really lovely. Great take on the inspiration picture.

  3. Love this. I know they are going to adore this card. I love travelingMama's blog and challenges, but I've not been able to participate yet. I thought that this photo was just stunning. I hope I can find some time to do the challenge. Have fun at the wedding and reconnecting with old friends, such good times.

  4. oh my! This is just so sweet! I love all your different elements and the background is the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for playing along!
    Hugs from Morocco!

  5. This is stunning! I love the bright colors- not something you usually see on a wedding card- but I LOVE it. Love that flower border on the left, too. So glad you could join us on CP.

  6. What a fun card! I think it makes a super wedding card!

  7. Love the combination of patterns and bright colors! Have a fun weekend with your friends!
