Monochromatic Wedding Card

There's another fun challenge going on over at The Paper Players blog site.  Right now there's still time to enter if you're interested.   

This week's challenge has to do with colour, and very specifically it's a #205 Sandy's Clean and Simple Monochromatic theme challenge.  

Here's My Card:

The card base is a piece of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" Whisper White card stock.  I've added a layer of Crumb Cake card stock that was embossed with the Beautiful Baroque Embossing Folder. 

A small piece of DSP from the Moonlight Designer Series paper pack that has a Whisper White and Crumb Cake flower petal pattern was added to the top of the card for interest. This piece measured 3 7/8" x 1 1/4". A piece of Whisper White card stock was added next. On this piece I stamped a full and a partial floral image from the Blended Bloom stamp in Crumb Cake ink.

Blended Bloom single wood block stamp Item #135906.

For the center of my flowers I chose to use the circle image from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set, stamped in Crumb Cake and decorated with Basic Pearls.  The butterfly and floral images are very delicate  and I hoped that by combining this image with the floral image it would bring a sense of romance and whimsy to my wedding card. 
For the sentiment I stamped "For the Newlyweds" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in Soft Suede ink. I really love the flowering script in this sentiment.  I punched out the sentiment with the large oval punch and mounted it on a Crumb Cake label that was die cut using the Apothecary Framelits set.  This piece was also embossed with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.

I hope you enjoyed my latest card.  Please leave me a comment if you think it's worthy.  And don't forget to pop on over to The Paper Players blog to check out all the other cards made for this challenge.  Appreciated.

Happy Stamping!

Thanks Yapha for stopping by and commenting on my card. It was fun doing this sketch. I wish you could actually see the card in person, because it looks much softer and more romantic than it does in the pictures.
