Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #91 - Weddings

Edna's getting married in the morning, ding dong the bells are going to chime.....

Well, maybe not, but our challenge this time at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is weddings. The twist is, you don't need to make a wedding card, you just need to include SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED AND SOMETHING BLUE on your work. This is a traditional rhyme that says the bride should include all of those items in her outfit on her wedding day in order to have a successful marriage.

Just digressing a moment, I included all those - my dress was new, I borrowed old shoes from my cousin and wore a blue garter. It must have worked, we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in September. (On the 17th, not that I'm hinting about cards or anything...)

Anyway, back to the card:

My Something old is the set of green papers, which I printed out from a Crafters Companion "Love" CD to make the thank-you cards after my daughter's wedding, 7 years ago, making them extra-appropriate for the wedding theme too!
Something new - the Beauty and her Beast image which was a free download from Free Dearie Dolls Digis and the gorgeous lacey heart die which was NBUS.
Something borrowed - the sentiment which I borrowed from a site offering free jokes for wedding speeches.
Something blue - well, all the blue stuff.

Definitely a wedding card for the 21st century!
I am sharing this with Country View Crafts - Blues and Greens

This is brilliant! Love the humour. Just realised I didn't follow the rhyme for my wedding, mind you it wasn't very traditional! Have a great weekend x

Super fun card, love the sentiment. I went along with the blue garter, the new dress but my jewelry was borrowed and the prayer book that I carried with my flowers on it was old. worked for us we celebrate 57 years on September 3
