New Beginnings Card!

The challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday this week is 'New Beginnings'. A friend of mine at work is getting married in a few weeks so this was the perfect opportunity to make her a card!

The image is from Stampendous and it's the first time I've inked up this stamp. I love the modern feel to it and it was a real bargain from e-bay!! I've coloured it with a mixture of distress inks and whispers pens. I also added some glitter to her dress {not sure if the picture captures it}. Not many embellishments on this card, I like to keep wedding cards simple. Silver mirri card used to matt and white CS embossd with Divine swirls, pearl brads from papermania. The sentiment is from a See D's set and I centralised it with my stamp-a-ma-jig {I seriously don't know how I managed before I got this I LOVE IT!!}. Adhesive pearls added either side of the sentiment to finish!

Well it's finally friday evening and I've a few days of work, I so need them! :-) Lot's of glorious sunshine as well! Yay!

For all those who left me such kind comments the other day, me & my OH are now speaking again. I think he just needed to calm down overnight and realise he was over reacting! It's only a TV programme. Plus I got some invaluable me time in my craft room! :-) I found out yesterday that a friend of mine's husband has Leukaemia, it just puts everything into perspective!

Well I hope you all have fabulous weekend and enjoy the sunshine. Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, vicky -x-
