WMSC65 Week of Sept. 17, 2011 - Wedding Bells

WMS-65WaltzingmouseStampsI saw this gorgeous sketch by Anya Schrier and I started hearing wedding bells!  I don't have a wedding to go to right now, so I will be adding this card to my stash - another benefit of blogging.  Sometimes I see a design and an idea just comes to me.  This design just looks so elegant to me with that fancy cut bottom.  Check out the congratulations card I made for this weeks' Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! 

To make my stamp read "Wedding Congratulations" I used the "Wedding Invitation" stamp from the Big Day Essentials set and taped off the "invitation" part.  That is how I ink up only the parts of the stamp I want.   I take a small piece of  tape and cover up the part I don't want to use.  Then I ink of the stamp, remove the tape and stamp away.  Next I took the "congratulations" stamp from the Fancy Phrases set and completed my sentiment.

I used pearl paper for the bottom border, the embossed section, and the border above the bow.  The glitter paper, foil and pearls make this perfect for an elegant wedding celebration.  I hope you are playing along with the sketch challenge this week.  If you'd like more information click on the Waltzingmouse blinkie in the right column.
