Mr. & Mrs!

On Saturday I mentioned that I needed to get some stamping time in to make a wedding card for a wedding we were going to on Sunday.  Well I found a few minutes to get a card together and was able to take a subpar photo before we had to shove it in the envelope and get to the wedding!  

 Before I sat down to make this card I had a different one in my mind that just wasn't going to work out due to the size of the die cut letters.  I regrouped and made this one instead.  It's a bit larger than I normally make.  It is 5 x 7 and seemed huge while I was working on it.

  I used the Just Add Ink challenge which is to use Bermuda Bay, Black and Silver on your project.  I thought these colors worked wonderfully for a wedding card.  I especially like the layer of Silver Glimmer paper and the shadow layer of glimmer paper on the ampersand.  

  I did goof a bit in lining up my characters and found after everything was glued down that the ampersand was over too far to the right.  I tried to correct that by adding some rhinestones to balance out my oops.  Hope the bride and groom can't tell!

  I did stamp some embellishment and the sentiment on the inside of the card if you're wondering!

  Hopefully all of you had a wonderful weekend and are refreshed and ready to tackle another week!  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
