I made this wedding card for my husband's co-worker. Everyone at his work was chipping in for a gift, but he told them that we would contribute a handmade wedding card to go with the gift. Naturally, this bit of information came to me at the last minute so I whipped something up quickly -- a bit of stamping and embossing, finished off with some ribbon did the trick.
The gorgeous medallion-like images are from "French Quarter" by Inque Boutiue, a stamp company that is no longer in business. Does anyone remember Inque Bouttique stamps? I have several of their stamps because a few months before they went out of business I won $100 worth of their stamps. Even though they are not current I still love many of those stamps and try to remember to pull them out once in a while.
I'm entering this into the current Crazy for Challenges #131 -- to use blue and white with one other color.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
