Make it Monday: Go-To Sentiment Card #2

I decided to make a 2nd card for the Make it Monday challenge over at PTI.  This time I wanted to go the elegant route which I haven't done for a while.  I wanted something classy too so I went with a wedding card.


I stamped the guidelines images on soft stone (light gray) cardstock in black, grey and white ink.  This was the first time that I have used this cardstock and it was a great neutral to use.  I'm sure you'll be seeing more of this color on my blog!


I used a whole row of silver pearls on the border of this card and also added clear rhinestones to the centers of the black images.  I also used one of the banner dies to make the decorative accent.  I love using this die to decorate cards with!


Thank you for stopping by again! I know that there have been lots of posts lately!  Thanks for bearing with me!  I have a lot to do now so I hope to resist the urge to create a bunch more cards.  I need to finish putting together 40 bridal invitations and prepare for another event at church.  The good thing is that I won't be going anywhere because it has been snowing all day and we have at least 6 or more inches of snow with lots more still coming down.  I will be SO happy to see Spring!! :)

This is stunning love the row of silver..the colors are a classic elegant combo. It is just awesome! Like the way the back layer just ever so slightly peeks out under the sentiment piece.
