Love & Cherish...

Here's a fun and funky wedding card I made for our cousin's daughter, who will be getting married this coming weekend. First of the cousins of my kids' generation to "get hitched!" We're all excited to attend the celebration.
I worked three challenges:
Colour scheme from "Colour Me...#30"
Card design from Freshly Made Sketches #146

Here's the close-up:
I stamped some sweet sentiments from Paper Smooches' "We Connect" stamp set onto the card base in the challenge colours and softened that with a vellum over-lay. Some strips of washi tape in Smoothie and gold provide the horizontal elements. The black-board panel uses white heat-embossed words from the same stamp set, along with a gold die-cut ampersand. The black & gold embossed sentiment strip is from Paper Wishes.  For some final (pretty subtle) detail, I used a Heidi Swapp stencil to apply some more hearts with clear embossing paste.
Busy weekend--not sure I'm in time to link up to the challenges, but I had fun playing!

Happy crafting,
