What have I got for you today?  It's a WEDDING CARD!  Who doesn't love making a beautiful wedding card and one you know that will be kept and treasured.  This card was a special request from a friend of mine who wanted a lavender theme.  Why a lavender theme you ask?  This special day was being held at a Lavender Farm!!  Can you just imagine how lovely and tranquil that must have been!

In keeping with the Lavender theme, I've reached for Power Poppy's Lavender Stamp Set, a colour palette of white and soft purples and some pretty delicate dies!  I've stamped the three lavender sprigs from Lavender Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics.  I've then fussy cut this image!  I've cut the various white, purple and Maja Designs stripe paper with Radiant Rectangles, Lace Hearts and Mrs and Mrs Dies, added some white an purple ribbons and then popped this Lavender image up on foam tape.

Stamps - Lavender (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Lavender, White, Maja Designs DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Dies - Radiant Rectangles, Lace Hearts, ODBD Die - Mr and Mrs Die, White and Purple Ribbons, X-press It Foam Tape, Glue

WOW! Kathy, there is just so much beauty in this card! I absolutely love it all, and I love all the wonderful dies and your perfect layering. The ribbon is beautiful along with the "mr. and mrs." die...but the fussy-cut lavender wins! It is the pièce de resistance! It's colored to perfection, and I love how you've played it with a beautiful wedding card! Thanks for sharing and inspiring, sweet friend! Hugs and love! xoxo
