wedding card

we have friends who are getting married soon, and i have been working non stop (well, it feels like non stop)! i just love the SU set "carte postal" (winter mini '06-'07) and think it's just so elegant. my sister used that set for her wedding invites, and they turned out beautifully! so needless to say, this set
jumped out at me when sitting down to do a wedding card.

i cased this card from joyk on SCS, you can see her card here.

card is 5x7, all ink, paper, and stamps are SU. used last years in color "cranberry crisp" for CB. nuetral CS is VV. used script stamp for background in CC ink. for the added background, i wadded up some cardstock and put it into a plastic bag (like a sandwich bag, without the zip closure), then inked the bag and used it like a stamp. gives great texture! i ink distressed the edges of the VV cardstock using the CC ink & a sponge. i stamped the flowers & leaves about three times each (not re-inking after using, gives it that nice faded look). the ribbon is actually a great find from the local thrift store, the only thing that's not SU.

well, need to get this into an envelope and get ready for bed. thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
