Mr. & Mrs. Best Wishes

Another wedding card to answer the 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 47 - Wedding, Pals Paper Arts 103 Sketch Challenge, and jac-inks Challenge 13 - Monotone.  It's always fun to find you're able to make a card with all these different variables; really makes you think.

The card base is Elegant Eggplant card stock.  I added a piece of Flirtatious designer paper to Perfect Plum card stock.  Before attaching it to the card front, I ruffled Whisper White Organza Ribbon by pulling a thread from one end and then adhering it to the layer using mini glue dots.  The ends were wrapped around to the back.  The image from the Always Elegant stamp set was stamped on Wisteria Wonder card stock using the Elegant Eggplant from the Regals Craft Stampin' Spots and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I matted it with a piece of Elegant Eggplant card stock and popped it up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set.  It was stamped on Whisper White card stock with the Elegant Eggplant stampin' spot and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I punched it out with the Small Oval punch.  Two small ovals were punched out of Elegant Eggplant card stock and used to mat the sentiment.  This was attached to the card with a dimensional.  Pearls were added to glam it up a little.  A very clean and simple card but worthy of a bride and groom I think.  See you back here soon.
