Just Add Ink 263: Wedding

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is a wedding card, which is something I've seldom done before. So I have decided to shamelessly indulge myself in a luxurious, opulent gold and white creation.

I had to dig out the gold embossing powder to pair with the vellum flowers, butterfly and sentiment. The gold ink used with Flowering Flourishes laid down a background for the rest of the flowers. Gold metallic embroidery thread looped around created an added layer. The vellum has photographed quite grey but it looks whiter in real life.

So, I'm pleased with how it turned out. Now, if only someone I knew would get married...

Card: Whisper White, Gold
Stamps: SU Flower Shoppe, SU Papillon Potpourri, SU Flowering Flourishes, Clearly Besotted Love Blooms
