Wedding Cards LIM #218, FMS #180 & Curtain Call

Hello. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. I'm on Spring Break, so I'm trying to get some catch up work finished. The gift shoppe that sells my cards is out nearly out of wedding cards, so that's this morning's priority.

This card is very CAS. I stamped the image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamp's Wedding Collage in Versafineblack ink onto a Neenah card base. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I colored the bride's bouquet with a pink Prismacolor Pencil, and then added clear Wink of Stella over the pink and her veil for some sparkle.

This will fit nicely in  the Less is More Color Challenge Week #218, which is Predominantly Black.

This card was made following the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #180, by Jen T. I used my favorite gold ink, Delicata Golden Glitz to stamp the sentiment from SSS Beautiful Words on a strip of CS and an old Hero Arts wedding bells stamp on my card base. I then added clear embossing powder and heat embossed the gold. I love how shiny it is!

The doily has been sprayed with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and cut in half. I tied a piece of gold and white twine from my stash around the sentiment piece. To assemble my card, I merely adhered the doily near the bottom, leaving enough room to adhere the sentiment strip between the bells and doily. To finish off my card, I added a scattering of gold and clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in different sizes. 

I will also enter this into the current challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge which is Beginnings.

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Have a fabulous day and enjoy!
