Soft & Elegant


As soon as I seen the challenge from Stampin' for the Weekend blog, I knew I was going to make a wedding card. The colours for this challenge was silver and pink. Once I finished the card I could see that it would work nicely for a "Silver Anniversary" occasion.
The base of the card was made from shimmery silver card stock layered with cuttlebug embossed shimmery pink where I added some tiny pearls to the vines. The image was stamped with versamark and embossed in silver, layered on pink, silver and velum cut from my circle nesties. For the diamond in the ring I applied glitter and then some crystal affects to give a bit of dimension. Found the perfect ribbon to finish off the card and added a filigree heart to the bow.
