This wedding card will go to one of my husband's co-workers, who is getting married this weekend. I knew that I wanted to use the Happy Couple stamp from Stampendous, but I was not sure if I wanted to color the image or not. I stamped the image using Staz-On black. On my first try I colored the bodice of her dress, the flowers and his cumberbund in blue with my Prismacolor pencils. just didn't look right. On the second try (and final) I decided not to color, but I did use some Diamond Stickles as accents on her dress and his tie and cumberbund. Much more subtle...I like the look. The first pic I've posted is a closeup that will (hopefully) show the glitter of the Stickles accents.

For cardstock, I used Whisper White and Going Gray (from SU!). The printed paper is from a the Making Memories Wedding Pad. The ribbon is SU's Basic Gray satin ribbon. I just received this ribbon in my recent SU! order and I LOVE it! I may have to order several other colors!

Well, it has turned cold again, here in Illinois. It's 22 degrees this morning...brrrrr. I wonder how my daffodils and crocus will handle these "winter" temps. I so look forward to springtime each year...I love watching the flowers re-appear after the LONG, cold snowy winters in northern Il.
Enjoy your weekend!
