It doesn't always have to be white

Hi all, with my house in decorating chaos and my scrapbooking supplies here, there and everywhere it was a bit of a struggle trying to find everything I wanted for this project.

My friend Irene is getting married in just over three weeks, and I'm making some of the bits for her (tiara, table plan, place cards etc.) so I wanted to keep her burgundy colour scheme going in the card I've made for their special day.

Using the incredibly versatile Scribble Sentiments for the wording both on the cover and inside, I also added a flourish from Fancy Flourishes and the heart came from the Made with Love and Laughter set. I used a silver ink pad for all the stamping and the edges. Along with some pearlised hearts, silver ribbon, a fantastic Fiskars Threading Water punch and.... ta da! Ok the fanfare might be a teeny bit over the top, but I hope you can see the possibilities with this design. Happy stamping people.
