Happy Wedding Day

Hello!


I truly love using bits and pieces of things leftover from other projects, to turn them into something new. Such is the case with today's wedding card. The sentiment panel was cut in two, and I saved the other half for a later project. After sponging on some subtle ink, and then stamping the Papertrey Ink sentiment, I added sequins, pearls, and pretty gold snippets of a Flowering Christmas Tree die (Memory Box). Those tiny metallic gold accents really did it for me!


The papers were collected long ago at a Stampin' Up! Retired Stuff Sale at my demonstrator's house. The bottom black panel has flocking on it -- love the tactile dimension it adds to the card.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

This wedding card is really amazing. This week I am also going to attend a wedding of my friend at Hollywood venues and I think being as a creative person herself she will love this card. Thanks for sharing it here.
