It's wedding season.

And I decided to make one of my favourite cards in a different colour scheme. I have previously made this card in gold tones, and this time I made it in silver tones.

I love making cards that involve digi stamps and colouring, but sometimes it is good to just stamp and get a wee bit inky...I even used embossing powders on the lovely butterflies on the card.

I popped the butterflies, birdcage and sentiment onto 1mm foam to give the card some dimension.

There are some teeny tiny 1mm pearls on the die cut flourish in the corner, and I feel they add something to the card.

Butterfly stamps from Inkylicious
Birdcage, birds and branch from a set in my stash.
Brilliance Silver Ink
Versamark Ink and Silver Embossing Powder
Flourish die
Silver pearlised papers from The Papeterie
Pearls from stash.

I have blanked out the name and date of the recipients, though I know they won't see it anyway.

Hope you like the card, and it inspires you to look out your stamps and inks.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges;
Opus Gluei - Wings
Time 4 Scrap - Butterfly
Paper Crafting Journey - Pearls and Swirls
