It's more VSN time!

So, yes, I was happy that King's Speech (and also Aaron Sorkin) won last night.   Yippee!

As promised, here are a couple more cards I made this weekend for VSN.
I threw in this Hero Arts stamp set the other day to get an online order over $50, so when I read Misti's challenge of using a bird stamp, it just sung out to me (get it?!?! I crack myself up).  I stamped the bird and balloons on all sorts of Echo Park paper (Little Girl and Walk in the Park), embossed, and cut out.  I added some orange twine the balloons and called it done!

My final card to show you is for LuvLee's challenge  of being inspired by your wedding song. 

Our first dance was to Mark Knopfler's "Are We in Trouble Now?"
  We even took dance lessons before our wedding which were so much fun.  Just recently, a groupon came up for some more lessons and I grabbed one for each of us.   So I'm going to stick two "dance tickets" in the sentiment pocket before I give it to my DH.  The image is from Eat Cake Graphics, and the paper and letter stickers are from (where else?) Echo Park.

I definitely had a fun time playing in VSN, hope to see y'all at the next one!

These are so cute, Meg! I love the paper pieced balloons and that is one cute birdie stamp. I love the old olive card base and the stickered sentiment for the wedding song card!
