Good afternoon bloggers, I hope your weekend has been enjoyable so far. Well, it's Sunday which means that it's the second of our challenges over at Dream Valley. The theme this fortnight is New Beginnings, whatever you take that to be. Think new babies, new job or school, new home, marriage, celebrating new shoes, even retirement being a new chapter, or anything else that means NEW to you.
This is my DT card for the challenge, and as you can see I went for a wedding card. I stamped this bridal couple straight to paper in sepia ink and added the swirl corner also in sepia. Some extra swirls in Tim Holtz Tattered Rose breaks up the backing paper a bit more. As you can tell, I am loving my layers of Martha Stewart-punched borders right now, and I added some ribbons because you just have to, don't you? I wanted the 'bouquet' to be the main focus and I fronted it with a stamped cartouche to which I gave a little colour with pencils and aged the central panel a little. The sentiment was printed from the computer and I placed a couple of pearls on it to finish it off. Hope you like it, I was quite pleased with it and made a couple of anniversary cards in the same design the next day.
