Wedding Shower Card

I made this card for my nephew and future niece. Today is their wedding shower. It comes at a less-than-perfect time, since my father-in-law (their grandfather) had open heart surgery two days ago. Hopefully, today will give everyone much needed time away from the hospital and celebrate the reason why we are together.
All supplies are from Stampin' Up!

Carousel Notes
Chocolate Chip card stock and ink
Shimmery White cardstock
Garden Silhouettes stamp set
Warm Words stamp set

ETA: I forgot to add the VersaMark to the supply list. :) I used it on the Carousel Note with a Garden Silhouette flower.

Finally, my OWN name frame!

I have made so many teacher name frames and never made one for myself. Tonight, I decided I was going to do it! I used a potpourri of materials and will post them all later. All of the stamps, eyelets and cardstock are from Stampin' Up! The ribbon and red background paper wer from a stash of leftovers!
