CCC #004: Here Comes the Bride !

Hey Stampers !!

Well, welcome to August !! And with the start of a new month - that means new challenges over on Catherine and Cathy Create !! Our monthly challenge over there this month is Here Comes the bride !! So, anything with a wedding theme can be entered !! I decided to make a wedding card, you know me - when in doubt, make a card !! But you should see some of the other fab projects the Design Team came up with !! So awesome - check it out !! But now, onto my card !!

I know, I know ... this is SO not a traditional wedding card !! But I'm gonna let you in on a secret - I don't have ANY wedding stamp sets !! Can you believe it !?! I have a few sentiments found in other sets, but no real wedding images. SO I have to get creative when I made a wedding card !! I knew I wanted to use the awesome "mr and mrs" stamp from the new Label Love set for my sentiment, and then I decided that I would use the GORGEOUS flower from Regarding Dahlias for my focal point !! How FAB is this flower - especially heat embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder !?! My color combo is pretty simple: Whisper White, Silver and small touches of Blushing Bride. I mean, with a theme of Here Comes the Bride - Blushing Bride is a MUST right !?! LOL I love how well the Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder matches the stunning Brushed Silver cardstock, don't you ?? Just softly shimmery instead of bold glitter. Very soft and lovely ! For some more color, I sponged some of the Blushing Bride into my embossed flower - love that look ! And for a touch of added sparkle, a Vintage Faceted Button with a Large Rhinestone added just the right bit of bling !!

Well thats it for me today !! Thanks so much for coming by. And please make a fun Wedding Themed Project and post it over on Catherine and Cathy Create !! We would love for you to play along with us !! Thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!
