*Silver and Whilte Wedding Card*

Two weeks ago I was asked if I could make a wedding card for someone I know who was heading to a wedding. I said sure. I finished it off this week, called her and she said she'd be here either Thursday night or Friday morning to come pick it up. Very strange that it's still here, then eh?

I had a vision of a pretty simple care in my mind for this... and I knew I wanted it to be mostly neturals... so I used only silver and white.

The Prima flowers were a last minute addition.. I just felt that the card needed something. I'm not sure that the flowers are right with this... perhaps I should have used cream coloured cardstock instead of the stark white.

In other news around our house.... there isn't much! LOL! The weather is absolutely beautiful. Bruce and I made the kids go bike riding this morning and he and I took the dog and went for a 40 minute walk. Supposed to hit somewhere near 18*C today.... about 648F. Love it!

items used:
*cardstock: Stampin' Up! in Whisper White and Brushed Silver
*image: Stampin' Up!
*ink: Versamark
*ribbon: Michaels
*tools: Marvy Giga Oval Scallop Punch, Embossing Tool, Cuttlebug and D'vine Swirl embossing folder, paper piercing tool
*embellishments: silver brads, Prima flowers, silver embossing powder

Wow that is a really nice card! Simple, yet elegant. I'm dying for the cuttlebug machine, someday soon I hope.

Nancy, that card was even more beautiful "in person".
Thanks so much for making it for her. (and not sending it to a more punctual person out in blogland)

This is a great site/blog! I'll be coming back often.

My new company slogan will be "Will work for cards!"
Warm regards, Lisa S
