Ball Wedding Gift

Another wedding gift for a dear friend. I’d been so caught up in my own hectic life I didn’t even know she was engaged until I received the wedding invitation! I feel like such a bad friend, but I know she understands. Mom’s illness and hubby’s job lay off kind of became my main focus for the past 2 years. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

I rotated the sketch.

Another TOTAL cheat here, but since Ball is their last name; doesn’t that count for the challenge?

My Creation

Image Detail
TIP ~ Here’s another example of customizing your supplies to fit the project at hand. I LOVED these chipboard letters – they are FUZZY! However, they were also BRIGHT red in color. Quick fix was to take find the perfect marker match and color over it. I was surprised how well my Copic changed the color of the chipboard and the fuzz to what I was looking for. I had to freehand the 2009.
