Congratulations, Jim & Juanita!

A few weeks ago, we attended our son-in-law's father's wedding. I just read an article about quilling in our Stampin' Success magazine and thought I would give it a try for their card.

Supplies: Shimmery White, Basic Black and Vellum card stock; Vintage Wallpaper Texturz Embossing folder and the Sizzix Big Shot. Dazzling Diamonds (inside the hearts). I used strips of Vellum card stock to quill the hearts.

Daring Adventure, con't

Here are two more cards using Daring Adventure and the Well Worn designer series paper. I really like the warm colors of the paper - it's great for Fall! When I first saw Daring Adventure in the Idea Book & Catalog, I didn't even give it consideration. But I love Well Worn! The two are shown together in the Well Worn Product Suite on page 144 so I thought I would give it a try. I am glad I did!
