Handmade Wedding

My good friend and neighbor, Ann, got married this past Saturday. The theme of her wedding was "handmade" and she spend countless hours making the decorations with the help of her fiance (now husband) Toni. Toni is a jewelry maker from Lebanon and so you can only imagine the beautiful beaded accents that were everywhere - on the cake, on the wine glasses, napkins...everywhere! Ann is also an artist and it was amazing to see what she had created.
I wanted to make them a card that mirrored that handmade sentiment - one that utilized their wedding colors. I decided upon this beautiful stamp from Loralie Designs. I colored it with Copics and Sparkling H2Os and die cut it with a Spellbinders Nestabilty (Labels Seventeen). I used a Spellbinders "Lacey Circle" die and American Crafts Thicker for the monogram. The blue paper is metallic and very shiny. I also used one of my new toys, a Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch Around the Page (Double Arches). I embellished the earrings with blue Dew Drops because they reminded me of some of the beautiful beaded items Toni made. It was a beautiful wedding and as you can see, I was inspired!

Thanks for taking a peek!
