Just Us Girls #456 - Word Week

Hi everyone!  It's September 1st, can you believe it?  Where did the summer go?  Time just flies when the weather is beautiful and there are so many things to do in the summer!
 The challenge this week over at Just Us Girls is our word week challenge.  The word that Ina chose is "CELEBRATE".  I know we all have a lot to celebrate, so let's get to it!
I have a wedding to go to tomorrow, and we are going to celebrate two teachers who are getting married.  Their colors are red and white (and I'm assuming black), so that's what I went with.  I used an old Cuttlebug dual embossing folder and die.  One side is the die and the other is the embossing folder.  I've had it forever.  I put that piece on fun foam and stamped the sentiment on a white piece behind it.  I backed it with a red mat then adhered that to a white panel.  The flowers are from MFT's stitched flowers dies.  I spritzed them with shimmer spritz and added some crystals. It's a big card (5.25 x 7.25) so I had to make a special envelope from pattern paper. 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our September guest, Julie Beech, on the JUGs blog.
