Sophisticated Wedding

 Join us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and find the inner class and sophistication in you!

I don't have any weddings to go to in the near future.  You know how they come in waves?  I guess the waves are now calm.  But....now I have a card all ready to go for the next one.

Here is my entry....inspired by a card made by Kimberly VanDiepen a long time ago.  I love her work.  Check out her blog here.

For this card I used the Elegant Trio stencil and pressed the Versamark ink pad into the stencil image, added my silver embossing powder and then heated it to set the embossing powder. 

I spritzed it with Bashful Blue marker and the Spritzer Tool and added the button, the rhinestone and the little banner.

Before the final assembly I took the Cutter Kit and distressed the edges of the Bashful Blue and the Basic Black layers to give it a softer look. 

Sweet, simple, sophisticated.....right?  I think so.  :)

Happy Stamping,

I had to see the stamp set used...only to learn of the stencil?!?! Genius. I'm always drawn to a CAS card and yours in no different. Fabulous! ...love the distressing/spritzing.
