Just Magnolia Week 56 Challenge

My dear sweet husband asked me to do a card for a couple at work who are getting married in the near future. As he is always willing to do anything for me, this was more than a pleasure! Plus, I have a couple of challenges this will work for.


This is Jane's sketch from the Just Magnolia Challenge for this week. You can see it HERE.
I had this image inked on the cold press watercolor paper from last month, when I made my anniversary card, and I was excited to try my Distress Inks again.

I am especially fond of using the Stickles "Stardust" on the veil!

My sentiment is computer-generated.
I like it so much, I am thinking of turning it into a rubber stamp.

Here are the ingredients:
Tilda and Edwin, Bride and Groom--Magnolia-licious Store
Papers--
Cosmo Cricket--"Something Special" (green swirls)
Sei--"Claire" (brown dots)
DCWV--"Floral #3" (solid green), Luxury Stack (off-white damask)
Stickles
Pearls
MS scalloped eyelet punch
sheer champagne ribbon
distress inks

Here is a view inside:


In addition to Just Magnolia, this is also being entered in the PaperPlay Challenge--Wedding Celebrations and Stamp Something Challenge--Two of something.

Thanks for the visit. I am so humbled by the great people who have stopped to see what I have been making, and your sweet comments. You make my day!

See you soon!
