Monogram Layered Card

Hi Everyone,
I'm back today with a card that I think would be nice as a wedding invitation, or a congrats for the bride and groom. Or just an any occasion card.

I used a black and a white background for the photo and I will show you both. Which do you like better? I couldn't decide. Here is the white background. I think the navy color looks more true in the photo with the white background.

I used some stamps from Just Rite that I received from the lovely Cammie King. Thanks Sweetie! I punched and die cut several layers. I dry embossed two of the layers. And added some distressing with a metallic ink from ColorBox. The CS and ink is Night of Navy from Stampin' Up. The DP is from DCWV.

For accents, I added a piece of lace, a sheer white ribbon, and some pearl stickers.

And, one more view just because.

Some fun challenges for Monogram Layered Card:
Joan's Creations: Use a Just Rite stamp only
Simon Says Stamp: Recipe: 1 image, 2 DP's, 3 different types of embellishments
Aly's Sunday Challenge: Anything goes
The Crafty Pad: Use ribbon
Sentimental Sundays: a sentiment, pearls and lace
I will be back with my Design Team card for the Stamping Vacation Color Combo challenge. Love ya,
