VSN meets 2RB

I have a love-hate relationship with VSN! It is a huge challenge for me to finish a card in 45 minutes. Quick, but not dull and boring...that's the dilemma! My first VSN I wanted to throw away most of my cards. I really do think it helps my creativity to just jump right in and play along. Experience and practice should continually make things a little better! I'm hopefully improving at stamping under pressure, so that even under every-day circumstances when I'm short on time, I can come up with something I would be proud to send.

When I saw last night's challenge for a non-traditional wedding card, there was NO question which set to use! I recently received some new sets from 2RedBananas, and this blushing flamingo bride was among them! She is just perfect for this challenge! I stamped her using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored her with prismas and gamsol, then gave her veil, bodice and shoes a little dusting of pink Sparkly Fluff. If I had a few black jewels, I would add them under the sentiment...a layered bow of satin and organza with a bright button accent and voila`! She is ready to go to the Vegas chapel to marry her groom.

This little tent topper would be just the right size to tuck in a little giftcard for the new couple to take on their honeymoon. I think it would also make a fun funky card to include with something slinky and sexy for a close girlfriend too! Bet that would bring lots of laughs!


  1. Deb - she's soooo pretty! Great job on your card - I love everything about it!!!

  2. Awesome card! I love the dimension of it, and how sparkly the bride is.
