C4C #208 ~ Cherish Every Moment!

A happy Saturday to all! Any card making plans on your agenda? My hubby has to work today, so I'll be doing a bit of crafting to make the time pass quicker. I do have a card to share for the Crazy 4 Challenges blog today. This is week number three of my guest design gig with them. Silke has given us the challenge of a wedding card using her super sketch and a pretty color combo ~ perfect peach, gold, mint and emerald green.


I started with a cream card base layered with tone on tone Graphics 45 paper. To keep the background from being too busy, I cut another panel from the DP and gave it a very thin mint mat. Next I die cut a PTI mat stack 4 label then stamped and embossed it with an Inkadinkado flourish and gold embossing powder. This pretty emerald green Crate Paper was punched with an EK Success punch, backed with snippets of a paper doily and topped with a gold embossed Precious Remembrance sentiment.


To add just a touch more gold I threaded a thin gold wire through my button. Doesn't it look pretty on my layered lace and tulle bow!

Thanks so much for joining me today. Be sure to stop by the C4C blog to see what the team has to share! Blessings ~Lisa
