Wedding Congratulations

After finding out that a relative of my husband is getting married this weekend, a cram session last night once the kids had finally gone to bed to make a delicate card for the happy couple. I used Retro Sketches #87 to base my card on. I wanted to use a peacock feather as a focal point & for something different I rotated the sketch too.

Kaszazz Mannequin

My background paper & strip are from the KaiserCraft Blae & Ivy paper pack. The stamp I used to cut out was the Kaszazz Mannequin on ivory cardstock & the bodice was on KaiserCraft Elegance paper. I also used a very sheer ivory tissue paper (found in my stash so not sure where it originated from) as the other main layer on the sketch (although its slightly difficult to see in the close up below).

All paper elements are edged with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. The card is finished off with a little bit of ribbon on the bodice & some classic wedding pearls.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by & having a look.
