Welcome to Day 1 of the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop!


Wedding bells will soon be ringing as the wedding season is almost here, and the design teams of Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls have teamed up to provide you with some beautiful wedding inspiration by creating projects using Paper Nest Dolls digital stamps! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.
 



 
Red Carpet Studio is a movie-themed challenge blog that runs weekly challenges, alternating between layout and card challenges each week. All of their challenges are inspired by either a movie or aspect of Hollywood!
The Paper Nest Dolls is a brand new digital/rubber stamp shop that sells adorable stamps inspired by the designer's children. Their stamps are sold here and they just started a challenge blog as well!










For my project today, I made....

 
I try not to make cards for hops, but I just love how this one turned out.  I used Paper Nest Dolls Bride Ellie image.  I really enjoyed coloring her.  Between her long hair and the folds in the dress, I could get really creative.  For the bit of blue, I used a blue mat, colored the ribbon and some flowers, and Stickles (of course). 
My 'new' addition are the pearls.  I won a GC from Miriam's Crafting Supplies and this is one of the many things I was able to get.  =) 
 
 


The Paper Nest Dolls owner and artist, Christine, is very generously providing us with some blog candy from her online stamp shop and her brick and mortar scrapbooking store! To be eligible to win you must comment on every stop of both days of the hop.
