The Challenge #48 {Theme Challenge-Weddings}

Hello and welcome to The Challenge! Each week we have a fun challenge for you to try! This week we have a Theme Challenge!!! We are looking for WEDDING CARDS! I know that Wedding cards seem out of season but there seem to be more and more "Fall or Winter" themed weddings happening these days! We hope you are inspired to join us!


I decided to use the sketch over at Viva la Verve. LOVE those sketches. I missed the ribbon element on my card but I hope they can see how I was inspired. I am not sure if I will link it up. What do you think? The flowers from Great Friend are stamped with Ranger Watercolour Black Ink and then "painted" with distress inks onto watercolour paper. I am also playing along with Art Impressions in their "water-based ink" challenge! My poor vellum butterfly is hard to see but it is there, under the sentiment.
