My niece, Krystal, married her fiance Archie on Saturday.  It was a very emotional, but happy, day; so uplifting to see a young couple with a future full of hope and love ahead of them.

The wedding invitation was quite formal, in black and white, so I used that as a starting point for the card I made for the happy couple.  I stamped Bella Toile in Basic Black ink on Whisper White card, then coloured in the flourish design with a silver glitter pen.  I used Stampin' Up!'s beautiful rich Cherry Cobbler colour to add highlights.  I hurriedly photographed the card (in bleak weather!) before giving it to them on Saturday; here it is:

Stamps: Bella Toile, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Basic Black, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black stampin' pad, Cherry Cobbler stampin' pad and marker
Other: Gelly Roll silver pen, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Basic Rhinestones, Whisper White satin ribbon. mini glue dots
