Tying the Knot, Literally

Finding time to create can be quite the task these days.  My husband is back on first shift, so those "lonely" nights are gone as we are on the same schedule now.  My day starts earlier, which means my day ends earlier.  It's also hockey playoff season, and both my AHL and NHL teams are playing in conference finals.  It's causing quite a challenge for me to find time to create these days.

I did attempt to create a little something for The Card Concept.  Here is there inspiration photo . . .

And here is my card . . .

I started out clean and layered, and I'm pretty sure that I stayed in that space.  That is typically where I like to play.  But as I was pulling in glitter, sequins and tulle, I began to tip down the hill to shabby chic.  The tulle . . . with the knot . . . above that "tying the knot" sentiment was an afterthought. 

With the long weekend, I'm hoping to find time today and tomorrow to do a little more creating.  Don't tell my house, because I should be doing a little more cleaning with how absent I've been the last two weeks. 

I hope you find some time to create.
