Beautiful Beginnings Card

Here's a wedding card I made for some friends of mine who are getting married this weekend.  Of course I have procrastinated until just a few days before, but luckily I found some inspiration at the Muse challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

The sentiment is embossed with silver on vellum, it took me a few tries to get a picture that showed how it reflects.  I love silver embossing!

I love the colors in the muse card, so I decided to use Wisteria Wonder, which I rarely do for some reason. I wanted to have some white embossing to mimic the muse card, so I  used strips of white to make a wedding cake, and embossed them each with a different pattern.  I used two kinds of polka dots, and it's perfect for the "going dotty" theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge. 

  And here's this weeks Muse card:

Thanks for looking, keep it crafty!
