Starfish Wedding

Happy Monday!


I've been wanting to share this card since, oh, JUNE.  I made it for my niece's wedding back then.  It's just, you know, life.  You can have the best laid plans, but then all sorts of things come up, and your path is redirected.  Proverbs 3:6 comes to mind. :-)


Anyway, I'm SUPER pleased with how this turned out!  I used the bride's bridal shower invite (the starfish, trimmed out of it) and the couple's wedding invitation (the mint cardstock) to create this!  I love using personal, very meaningful touches like this on so-very-special occasions such as wedding cards.


I mounted the panel (complete with sequins and gems, and a stamped sentiment) onto an embossed white card base.  Voila, it was finished!



Stamps: Best Wishes - Hero Arts Paper: white - Papertrey Ink; mint green - bride's invitation! Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: Sparkly Clear, Marshmallow sequins - Pretty Pink Posh; starfish - bride's bridal shower invitation!; Damask embossing folder - Sizzix/Tim Holtz; rhinestones - Queen & Co.
