Let no man put asunder...


I hope your week is going well.  My week is moving along. :-)

Today I would like to share with you a card I made just for the fun of it.  I was playing around on the web and found this digital stamp store and in the store I found this stamp.  I immediately purchased it...colored it...and let it sit on my worktable for a couple of weeks.  Every week I would add something else to the image.  First it was the cardstock base, then the papers, then the cage, etc. etc.  I finally sat down this past weekend and put it all together.  I would have to say that my obession with "Say yes to that dress," was my muse for this card. lol

Here's my card...

Let no man put asunder

Bride and Groom - Maruva DQ, Inc.
 This card was a bit different from my normal card, but I like to step out of the box every once in a while.  I wanted to make this card appear to be a cross between old vintage, but still elegant and modern.  As I mentioned before, this card kind of just came together.  I colored up the image and let it sit for a while.  I then got a new 6x6 paper pack from MME and used some sheets from that along with cardstock from SU and Kraft paper I picked up at the last Megameet event I attended.  I begin to layer on embellishments.  I started with the svg cage from Bird (no not who is so very generous with her creations.  I look forward to playing with some of her other goodies on there.  I used Cheery Lynn flourish dies and SU heart punches.  The pearl flowers were from Terri Collins and the other flowers are from Wild Orchids.  I added the "wish" key which was something I had in my stash.  I aso finished the edges of my card using a white pen and glitter (I didn't feel like pulling out the sewing machine). *smile*

Well, there it is in a nutshell.  Thanks for looking and commenting.
