Papertrey Paper Dolls #38

It's my turn to host the newest challenge at the Papertrey Paper Dolls Blog.  Have I mentioned how much I love being a part of this amazing group of women?   Not only are they super talented, but they are so generous and kind-hearted too.

Okay, on to the challenge:

It's the start of wedding season!  Anyone attending any weddings this summer?  Even if you don't have a wedding to go to you'll probably need lots of anniversary cards on hand for all the weddings you previously attended.

I'm issuing a simple challenge to make either a wedding or an anniversary card!

My husband and I are going to a wedding this Saturday. I created this card based on the colors of the gorgeous wedding invitation -- black & white with a splash of aqua.



The aqua flower is cut from a sheet of mulberry paper and then stamped.  I just layered three different die cuts to create the blossom.  I used the Victorian Lace border die for my scalloped flap and added some pearls to dress it up.






All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  In Bloom, Giga Guidlines (sentiment)
Paper:  True Black, white, mulberry paper (remember when)
Ink:  black (memento), tropical blue (rubber stampede)
Other:  Victorian Lace die, In Bloom dies, pearls (michael's)

Beautiful, Sara! I love these colors for a wedding, and they must have been fun to work with. Great idea to stamp the leaves simply and leave them black & white, it just makes the card. Stamping the flower layers on mulberry paper--this is the first time I've seen this and I love it! Definitely gives the flowers a different look! This is going to be the bride's favorite card! :-)
