Weddingcard - caardvarks

We are invited to a wedding on Saturday and I needed a card. Love creating wedding cards! I used caardvarks` sketch # 2 for this one:




I used Hero Arts stamps for the background (old letter writing and polka dots), the flourish stamp is Papertrey Ink. I created the flower using my Cuttlebug and some tissue paper, then inked everything with Ranger distress inks. The sentiment says "Congratulations".

Hope you had/have such a wonderful and sunny day like me! I was outside with my girl all the time, practicing how to go down stairs and driving Bobbycar. And when my husband came home from work we fetched some ice-cream from the ice-cream parlor - yumm!

Hugs,
Vanessa

This is gorgeous. I love the flower, do you mind me asking what die did you use, it looks fantastic-very clever to have made it with tissue paper. Lovely layout too. Hope you all enjoyed the ice cream!
