Hi there ~ I hope everyone had an enjoyable 4th of July holiday! Ours was very low key with the heat at 100...ughhhh. When it's that hot there is just no ambition to do much of anything. My guys all went on a charter boat fishing trip yesterday and my hubs is one worn out fella who is currently catching some zzzz's!!! Air conditioning and card making for me work out pretty well though!
This week at the Play Date Cafe they have what I consider to be an elegant color pallet ~ gold, nude and silver. I usually don't go for metallics but I thought this would make a great wedding card. And it's always a good idea to step away from your comfort zone now and again! To take a bit of that pressure off I'm playing along with Freshly Made Sketches.
I layered a vellum panel with silver scrolls on it over a flesh colored cardstock. Next came the metal corner pieces and then a flesh panel with two silver embossed strips of vines by Impression Obsession. I tied some old gold tulle around the card then popped my final panel up with foam tape. This one is stamped with the sentiment from Stampabilities and layered with PTI filigree borders and a trio of gold gems. My tulle bow looked lonely so I glammed it up with and old gold silk flower, cut glass glittered key, silver twine and a MFT mini rolled rose. I'm happy with the elegant look this has and that it's not too fussy!
Thanks for visiting today, I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for a new colour combo from Dynamic Duos! ~Lisa
