Cathy, one of the talented Penny Black DT members, is getting married in a few days. She's having a mini challenge on her blog to make a wedding theme creation. I don't have a reason to make wedding cards very often, so jumped at this chance to make one for sweet Cathy. Mine ended up kind of girly, so it will have to be for the bride instead of the happy couple. I white embossed Penny Black's Paisley Outline onto white cardstock, cut it out with Memory Box's Grand Heart die & then inked it with Distress Ink spun sugar. Behind it is a Spellbinders Parisian Motifs die. Thanks to those of you who told me to put a piece of wax paper next to an intricate die so you can get the image out without ruining it--what a difference! I finally opened my package of Tim Holtz trims that includes these white ribbon flowers which are easily attached to the heart with glue dots. I thought it needed a little something more, so added 2 pearl stickpins covering the sharp ends with seed beads using Glossy Accents (which I learned from Janet--jintyoo7). The verse is one of my original stamps from Embossing Arts who was located on the outskirts of my town until they went out of business. I stamped it in Versafine Smokey Gray. I'm hoping I'll be able to actually get this card to Cathy & that she'll like it. There's still time to enter her challenge if you haven't yet. I always appreciate your visits & will be checking your work soon.
