A Perfect Fall Wedding CARD, The I Do Photos and LIM95

This post is kind of long but I'd think you'll like it.  Please forward & share with friends for those who love the Owl Builder punch & also pretty weddings.

A big Congratulations to Kelly and Ian on their Happy I Do day back in late October.  It was a perfect Fall wedding at The Old Homestead in scenic Crockett, CA (wedding photographs below).  So on with the card ...
My owl wedding card. The owl dress draped with a string of pearls and a touch of one glamorous rhinestone!
A close up photograph above of the owl bride's dress and ivory tulle veil.  At Kelly & Ian's wedding, the couple made the sweetest wedding favors I've have ever seen.  They were a mason jar filled with delicious oatmeal cookies adorn with beautifully laced & ivory satin picot edge-ribbon draped all around (sorry, no picture).  On the owl card I personalized it by adhering a piece of the picot-edge ribbon from Kelly's favors and adhered it onto the veil for the owl bride card "something new". 
 A string of pearls!
Below are a few of my favorite photographs I took of the Happy I Do couple Kelly & Ian.  Hope you enjoy them.

A big congratulations to Kelly and Ian on their Happy I Do day!
A Perfect Fall Evening Wedding it was!
 A photograph of my little grown up family. My son Matthew, Marian (me), my daughter Mandy (who was in the wedding party as a bridesmaid/brides hair stylist and by the way who caught the bouquet) and her sweet boyfriend Damon.   Mandy is wearing my favorite pearl necklace "something olde" given to me from my God Mother from when I was born.   Every year my God Mother would add a pearl and then when I turned sweet 16 she finished off the necklace.  God Bless my sweet Nina Lucy.   Doesn't Mandy look great!

LQQK there's more!  Over at Less is More Chrissie & Jen created some inspiring
Rich royalty gems a string of pearls and a sparkly rhinestone!

Gift Certificate Holders Petite Purses to Go!

My daughter Mandy is a hair stylist and for her business she needs a lot of gift certificate/any occasion holders.  I was trying to think of something outside the box, so instead of a normal card to make I decided to think outside the purse.  I made a whole line of petite purses for her and her colleagues using the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper and used some of my retired scraps of DSP as well.  *Please note a business card will fit just fold it in half.

Snow Festival Designer Series Paper pack #126908 a playful winter images. Versatile colors. 12 sheets: 2 ea. of 6 double-sided designs. 12" x 12". Acid- and lignin-free. Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Soft Suede, and Whisper White.
These two purses above in pink are from a former DSP called Sending Love glitter paper. These make a great birthday gift certificates.

Petite Purse Bigz L Die 
Create a perfect little purse in a snap with the Petite Purse Bigz L Die #125606 $32.95
Here above I used the Curly Label Punch.
Looking inside the purse above I lined themed each DSP piece using the extra large-oval punch to cover up the scallop circle DSP piece for edging.  Inside each purse I inserted adhesive sticky back velcro 5/8" clear dots for easy closure.  The velcro dots can be purchased from any stationary supply store. 

Using some retired scraps of Bella Rose DSP.
