Wedding card for GDP#032

One of my daughter's childhood friends is getting married.  Ann has been in Emily's life for over fifteen years.  What's really fun is that my husband, who is a pastor, will be marrying the couple.  This will be the third childhood friend that Steve will have married.  Ann's shower is next weekend so of course I made a homemade card to include with her gift.  


I am able to use Ann's card in the week's Global Design Project Challenge.  This challenge is a CASE the designer one.  Here's Kristen Frattin's card that I CASEd.

Kristin's soft and elegant card was perfect for my wedding card.  Instead of using Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the background, I chose to mask and sponge the stripes in Perfect Plum. 

 I used the For The New Two stamp set for my sentiment.  I adore this pretty stamp set!  You can snag it right now off  the retiring list! I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark and then embossed it in silver.  I die cut the embossed sentiment with a Lots of Labels framelet.

I kept the peek-a-boo doily underneath my sentiment.  I also kept the leaves but substituted die cut ones from the Rose Garden Framelets.  My finishing touch was to substitute silver thread behind the sentiment instead of the bow in the front of Kristin's sample.

I love the way my card turned out!  What do you think?  Please leave me a comment below and subscribe to my blog if you like what you see.

Happy stamping!
