Wishing You Love

Greetings!  Traveling about, but wanted to join in over at Make My Monday where the challenge this week is to create a project around Vintage Weddings.  I knew I wanted to work on this card while traveling, so I grabbed a plate of stamps by Stampsmith called "Won't You Be My Honey."  I thought the image above could easily be a bride from a by-gone era.  I stamped her with London Fog Memento Ink onto Specialty Paper to give her a more subdued, vintage feel.  The sentiment, also by Stampsmith, would be appropriate for a wedding day card.  I layered a soft aqua and white pearlized designed paper over my card base for just a hint of color.  The vintage buttons were topped with pearls to continue the wedding theme and the corners of the photo were enhanced with paper corner tabs.  Some vintage seam binding, pom pom lace and copper butterflies complete the card.  Thanks, as always, for dropping by my blog today.  I truly appreciate each visit and comment.  Best wishes, Yvonne
