Wedding Wishes

Happy Saturday,
Today in London, Ontario it's a beautiful day for a wedding. I'm looking forward to the family wedding later today. The wedding card I made uses the same colours as the wedding invitation - black, pink and white. I can't remember the last time I used black cardstock as the base for the card. The invitation looked clean and modern so I wanted to create the same look on my card. I knew I wanted to use an older stamp set that I haven't used in ages - On a Pedestal. I know it's a birthday stamp set, but I think the birthday cake can pass for a wedding cake. For the layout and design I went to Friday Mashup challenge #21 - Bossy and Sketchy. Interestingly the layout is similar to the one I had in mind and I also wanted to use an embossing folder for the card. Since I'm using two older stamp sets , I thought I'd participate in Just Add Ink #82 - Just Add . . .  Something from your stash.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

Here are the details:

CS: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Stamp Set: On a Pedestal, Whimsical Words
Ink: Melon Mambo
Tools: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch

Enjoy the day,
