Wedding Couple in Lavender

Hi Dreamers!
Finally getting a chance to post!  Yesterday and today, I have been busy running around to the dentist, visiting my parents, grocery shopping, post office.....  But, here I am, with a few minutes left in the day to post this wedding card.  I made this for my BF's son and his new wife.  I choose to use their wedding colors for the card--lavender, gray, and white.

  • Start with a harlequin background made with the Crafter's Workshop Template Mini Harlequin and spray inks.  
  • Once the background was dry, I stamped a large script stamp from Hero Arts -Wedding Word Print - over the background.
  • Wrap lace and tulle around the background.

  • Stamp the Couple-Wedding Collage Sweet N Sassy Stamp.  
  • Distress the edges with Pretty Petunia Versa Magic Chalk ink

  • Add ribbon and peals
  • On the inside is stamped this pretty sentiment that is also in the SNS stamp set.

I used Becky's pretty Sketch for my layout.
