SIP Challenge #41 - Weddings!

Hello!  Hope you've been having a wonderful week so far!  I'm just getting back to work after a week's vacation so there has been a lot of catching up to do!  

Since it's Tuesday, then of course it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge!  This week's Challenge is a Wedding Card!

I'll have to admit, my first thought was white on white and I absolutely adore a white on white card but for some reason, I found that Wisteria Wonder was calling out to me this week.  Does that ever happen to you?  I added a bit of Elegant Eggplant and White as well.  

Here's a closer view so you can see the Wink of Stella.  I just love adding glittery goodness to my projects!  I added it to my flowers at first and then decided to add a bit to my leaves as well!

I used my favorite stamp set from Ellen Hutson "Bold Blooms" to stamp some of the scribble roses, leaves, and dots onto a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock tone on tone.  I then used the coordinating dies from Ellen Hutson "Bold Blossom" to cut out some of the flowers and leaves.  The Blooms were cut in Elegant Eggplant  and adhered to Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then trimmed out.  The leaves were cut in Wild Wasabi and they were glued onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then trimmed out as well.  I used a partial cut of a Stampin' Up! Tea Lace Doily adhered to the Wisteria Wonder Layer before adhering the ribbon and flower and leaves die cuts.  The wooden "Congrats"  was from Stampin' Up! and was one of the Expressions Natural Elements.  It comes in a light natural wood tone.  I pressed it into White Craft Ink to make it White and then used some Wink of Stella on it as well.  I used Alene's Fast Grip Glue to glue on the "Congrats" sentiment.  Tombow Multipurpose glue was used to adhere the Wisteria Wonder layer onto a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock.  That was then glued to a skinny layer of Whisper White (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") and then those were all adhered to my 4 1/2" x 11" Wisteria Wonder card base that had been scored at 5 1/2".  Finally I added three Pretty Pink Posh Dew Drops with some Alenes Fast Grip glue.

I hope you like it and I hope it's not too colorful for a Wedding Card.  I plan on using it for a coworker's wedding shower that's coming up soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings,  Tina
