I'm not much on color challenges - I guess my brain just doesn't work that way, so maybe a few liberties there? I was inspired by that gorgeous cake decorated with leaves, flowers and branchy lace. Of course I saw a wedding cake in my head - this is so elegant and beautiful. So that's what I'm going for today..
I mimicked lots of elements from the inspiration photo.. branches, leaves, flowers...
The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Big Day Additions. The font in this set is perfect for any formal occasion. I fussy cut the sentiment and adhered it with adhesive foam tape so I could insert the branch underneath it.
You always know a wedding invite when it comes in the mail.. the envelope is thick and the paper is always the best quality. I wanted that same feel to my card so I used watercolor paper. I die cut and embossed both corners with the Poppystamps Clara Corner die.The sentiment flowers and leaves are also cut from watercolor paper. The thick paper picked up lots of the engraved detail on the leaves. A sprinkle of pearls was my finishing touch.
If you're having a quiet day like me you might want to give this challenge a try. You can get all the details here at The Card Concept.
