Joan's Gardens Challenge #19 Wedding in B&W

     I had a little time to create this afternoon, while the DH was napping.  I decided to drag out some of my older, neglected SU! sets, to do the current challenge at Joan's Gardens.

Here are the requirements:

Make it a wedding theme
Create in black and white
Use rhinestones or pearls
Add some kind of flourish

Materials Used:

Stamps: SU! Voila, Voila To Go, Congrats, solid flower stubby from Stamps By Judith, and some tiny hearts and flowers from an unknown clear set.

Papers:  card stock is Pure Luxury, designer paper is Little Black Dress from Basic Grey

Inks:  Versafine

Coloring: Copics

Embellishments:  pearls, opaque black stone flourish, Prima rose, polka dot ribbon

Die:  Simple Buckles by Memory Box  (gift)

     This was great fun!  So glad I got to play along.  DH had another day full of improvements, and we plan a relaxing holiday weekend.  Hope you have one, also!

Wow, Mary Anne - you really did a great job on this card! It's a mix of CAS and elegant! Love it-you rock :) SO happy to hear that DH is doing better. If he is like mine at all, you may have to chain him down in order to make him rest! Keep us posted, and I'll keep on praying!

Glad hubby is resting and all seems to be going well, continued prayers coming your way. Glad you also got some time to craft, this card is just so precious, love it and the black and white. Have a great weekend and don't forget to rest yourself.

Mary Anne, love your card! This stamp set is such a great one, and forgot about it until I saw your card!!
You did a wonderful job on this one, I really like it in black and white!! I'm playing catchup today. Sounds like your hubby had his surgery, and is resting. Continued prayers for you both.
