     This is my first blog hop for  Bombshell Stamps and I am so excited that I can hardly sit still to type.  You are going to see some absolutely awesome and inspiring cards along the way.  I tell you those bombshell girls are talented from the tops of their heads to the tips of their toes.

     If you have arrived here from Meredith's blog, The Paper Canteen, you are on the right track.  If not you can start from the beginning at the Bombshell Blog.

      Rachel,  Miss April, is our super talented guest designer and she has challenged everyone to come up with a wedding theme.  Well, I was so inspired that I actually came up with two cards both, very different.

     The first card has a Las Vegas type wedding theme.  This card was fun to make.  Johnny Luv inspired this card when he found some Vegas thickers from Jolee's at a recent scrapbook convention.

     I embossed the black background with a diamond pattern and added small rhinestones wherever the diamonds met, both for the Vegas lights and bridal diamonds.  The stickers are a little hard to see with all their  glitter but one says Las Vegas, Welcome and the other Wedding Chapel.  I used my Bombshell Angel  for the bride with a bit of tulle for her veil.

     My second card, which I had posted earlier this month, is a more traditional card. I love white on white and what could be more appropriate for a wedding?  I used the butterflies from the Butterfly Angel stamp set for this card.
     Now you are off to Alaine's blog, Miss Alaineous' Mosaics. You are bound to be impressed, so please leave her a little love as you hop on by.
