SUO Challenges #72

Posted on

Hello, and how are we today? Did we all make it through Monday ok?! I was lucky enough to get through unscathed. It was pouring here this morning and then the rain stopped and it was just muggy and soup like. Not the best hair day! LOL! It’s nice and cool out this morning! My friend Cynthia asked me to post a picture of the venue that I saw the Pitbull concert at on Saturday so here you go…

Jones Beach Theater

Luckily our seats were far enough away to get a good shot of the stage with the water behind it! LOL!

Today I have my Design Team card for SUO Challenges. This time around the theme is weddings so I happily broke out my Best of Brides and Babies Stamp Set. The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock that I cut to 11″ x 3 3/4″. A piece of Basic Black is flagged on the bottom and goes down the middle. I used the Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies to cut out the background image which is from the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set and is stamped in Smokey Slate. The main image is stamped in Basic Black and is mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals. I haven’t made a paper bow in a while and I thought it would be the perfect addition to the top. I used Smokey Slate for the bow and adhered it with some Sticky Strip. I love the mix of grays and black the image cut out with the Floral Framelits makes a nice change. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to come by and see my card for this week’s SUO Challenges Wedding themed challenge. Make sure to stop by the blog and see what my comrades have for you and make one for us to see and upload it to the gallery. Have an interesting Tuesday! 🙂

  1. Justin, this is fabulous! I love that stamp (now I need it) and the neutral color scheme is very elegant. And that bow is gorgeous!

  2. Wow, is that the ocean behind the stage. That is awesome. Thank you for sharing.

    Love the card. Too bad I’m already married, would have loved to get a card like that. Beautiful.

  3. hi justin! isn’t jones beach a great place to see a concert? i love it there! i also love this card and your paper bow is gorgeous!! i have to figure out how to make one. thanks for sharing!

    • Hello Jeannine,

      Yes, Jones Beach is my favorite place to see a concert! I’m so glad you enjoyed the card, I love the paper bows! Have a nice evening! 🙂

  4. Very different kind of place for a stage, but beautiful! I just love your card, the colors, and I love paper bows!

  5. Great card, Justin! I don’t think I would have thought of using black & gray for a wedding, but it opened my eyes – a very elegant treat.
    As always, thanks for sharing.

  6. I really like the way you included the wedding stamp in the layers for this card. I especially like the way the larger framelit peeks out over the edge of the card. A nice touch!

    • Thank you Robin! I’m experimenting with different card sizes, I like it when a little bit hangs over but it still fits in a standard envelope. 🙂
