happiness always {a wedding card}

Hello!!!! I hope this finds you all FABULOUSLY well!!!
I've been, actually WE'VE been struck down by a NASTY, NASTY Gastro Virus here, which seems to have hit each subsequent victim worse than the one before.... ME.. well I copped it last, so I've been pretty much out for the count for a few days. Unfortunately I wasn't able to play along with the Inkspiration Team Gals this week... I tried.. but my head and my lil' bod.. just would play along.. haha, and I felt terrible that I didn't have something to show you this week... sooo.. I thought I'd show you Wedding Card I've had made and ready to blog for a little while for a friend of mine.

I've used Whisper White and then layered it with some Textured Whisper White cardstock then to that a layer of Pretty in Pink and another of Textured Whisper White, which I first cut an Apron Lace Border along the bottom of. I made a little flower using my Scallop Circle Punch, but before I cut each layer out I FAUX SUEDED it.. yep.. there it is again!!!.. And I PROMISE I 've got my Tutorial coming... with the Kale' abode being out for the count for this past month.. it's been a wee bit hard to get edited and up for you... SORRY!!!!... ooopps back on track.. right.. I faux sueded the flower.. then added some Certainly Celery ribbon leaves and secured it all together with a gorgeous Rhinestone brad. I added a little bit of White Ribbon (from my stash.. actually from my very own Wedding Stash... goodness it could almost be Vintage Ribbon.. bwhhahaa.. ok maybe not.. I've only been married for 8 years :D ) and the sentiment is from on of the now gone Sale-a-bration sets Whimsical Words.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Hope you like.. and PLEASE be sure to visit the Inkspiration Team this week and give them all some comment LOVE. I hope to be back fighting fit next week.. hopefully even for the Sweet Sunday Sketch on Sunday.. FIngers Crossed!
