Wedding Creative Sketches Style

Well, its Thursday! And that means another challenge from Creative Sketches.  It's time for another 'holiday' themed sketch challenge!  The rules are super simple: make a paper craft item with a holiday theme and follow the sketch.  See, super simple!

Now, if you notice, not only did I flip the sketch, but I also did a mirror image.  I made a shabby chic wedding card.  For the main panel of aqua blue cardstock, I created my own background pattern paper.  I stamped the flourish repeatedly from the Friends 24-7 set and then stamped the Sanded background stamp. I wanted my paper to have some depth.  I had a scrap piece of First Edition DSP that I used to create my decorative square.  For the circle, I punched out the circle shape from a tag that was originally a rectangle,.  I wanted to add my sentiment on the circle and not the square, so I stamped the wedding congrats in Chocolate Chip classic ink.   I stapled the  scrap piece of crochet trim to the circle, I thought it added some shabby style to the whole look.  I also used my hot glue gun to attach the button.   I made the multi-loop bow out of Crumb Cake seam binding.  I wanted the  center of the bow to be a bit jazzy, so I made the pearl center myself.  I strung some loose pearls with beading wire and created the circle shape, then I used my hot glue gun to attach the pearl center to the bow.  I thought that the left corner seemed a bit bare, so I added a butterfly and gave it a rhinestone body.  To continue the pearls, I added two trio faux half-pearl lines to two different areas of the card.
Please join our challenge.  Let your creative spirit dictate your piece.  You never know, you could be our next 'winner'!
