Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #93


I decided to make a wedding card using this sketch as I haven't made one forever.  Plus I wanted to use some of yummy DP I found, but unfortunately it ended up being mostly covered up!

Nothing too fancy here.  The cream linen paper has a texture to it which helps but all in all it is a pretty CAS card.  Wish I had an in between sized heart nestie as this one was just a little too small to fit in the sentiment swirls, and the next one was too large for the sketch.  Felt like Goldilocks minus the heart shaped nestie that was juuuust right LOL!   I opted for the smaller one and finished things off with some gold beading and a rolled rose.

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
