CSS Sketch Blog Hop - 7-9-2013

I love sketch challenges and this one is really pretty. You should have arrived from Lori McAree where I am sure you saw a wonderful project with this sketch!

I made this card for my niece's wedding coming up in a couple of weeks. For this "Irish" family I try to incorporate some green into the cards. The image is from Always and Forever with the sentiment from Mr. and Mrs. Diva. This card had several trial and errors. with this one being the winner! I used GKD Ivory and a panel of Crème de Mente. On the Ivory panel I used a Cuttlebug folder after heat embossing some glitter on it. The couple was embossed in silver. I sponged lightly around the couple and a silver heart is hanging from the card.

Now you have to hop on over to check out what Tera Fujan has created for us to see.
