My good friend Eleanor has commissioned a couple of cards. This is the wedding the card. I used today's Card Positioning Systems sketch as a starting point but this card also fits a couple of other challenges - Thursday's Stampin' B's challenge to use a sentiment as a focal point and the Terrifically Thrilling Thursday challenge to use lots of layers. Those are two types of challenges that I really enjoy.
The background paper is Close To My Heart Garden Green that was dry embossed with the Sizzix Damask texture plate. The patterned layer is My Mind's Eye Coastal "Curious" layered on Stampin' Up Soft Sky. The ribbon is from Offray. The sentiment, from Inkadinkado, is stamped is Soft Suede on a scrap of Whisper White. The embellishments are from the dollar store.
Eleanor asked for an elegant and slightly romantic card and I think this fits the bill nicely. I also know that this card suits Eleanor as the 'giver'. I think it is beautiful. I love this Mind's Eye paper which I found at Multicrafts garage sale a few weeks ago. It was a wonderful paper which inspired the remaining colour, texture and ribbon choices and I think that's why this card works so well.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
