Simple Elegance

Here is a simple wedding card that was inspired by this card on the Cards Blog (as in Cards magazine). I used White Daisy textured cardstock for the base. As for the pink, my decision to use it was based on the ribbon I had on hand. Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush ribbon and Close To My Heart's Blush cardstock were the closest I could come to a match. You get the idea. It's a pretty card for a 10-minute effort.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Blush cardstock; White Daisy textured cardstock; Blush ink pad; Impression Obsession Sentiments I stamp set; Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush ribbon; Kaiser Krafts pearl accents; Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edger punch; Cuttlebug w/Textile Texture embossing folder.

Today was another busy day at work, and right, Marv is rushing me out the door to go have dinner. Who can argue with a handsome man who wants to buy her dinner? With that, I'll cut it short. Hope your day was a good one! Later ...
