Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #214: Big News

Happy Monday!  Part of the fun this past weekend was attending a wedding for a dear friend.  It was up in a part of Maryland I haven't been to before and despite the crazy heavy rain most of the day we saw some beautiful sites and the wedding was lovely!  Of course I had to make a special card for my friends special day so I decided to use the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge as the inspiration for the wedding card and drew on the colors at the wedding as well.

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Night of Navy cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  Next I used the Big Shot and Circle Collection Framlits to cut out circles of Whisper White cardstock and Gold Fancy Designer Foil Vellum (using the heart print) and then used a paper cutter to trim off parts of the circle once I attached the circles to the cardfront.

For the greeting I used the Big News stamp set and stamped it with Night of Navy ink on Crumb Cake cardstock before cutting it out with the Big Shot and the new Lots of Labels Framelits and then attached it with dimensionals.  Of course I need some bling so I started with a nice big bow using the Gold 5/8" Satin Ribbon.  I stamped some flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set using Night of Navy Ink on Marina Mist cardstock and then punched them out with the Petite Petals Punch.  I used a bone folder to curl up the petals of the flowers before attaching it to the cardfront with glue dots and then added a medium pearl to the center of each flower.

This sketch was perfect for this card and let me add just the right amount of embellishments add lots of texture and dimension and really make this card a WOW card, love it!!!
