Silhouette Wedding card

Here's a quick wedding card I made with the Unity Stamp kit Insightful Meadows by Donna Downey and sentiments from the LIVE LAUGH LAUGH kit by Samantha Walker.  I've got another wedding coming up and had in my mind exactly what I wanted to do: silhouette flowers embossed with black powder.  

Once I embossed the flowers, I stamped again for a shadow effect, just to the left in gray ink.  Let me tell you, I wanted to add ribbon and bling and more crafty stuff...I literally made myself stop.  You have no idea how HARD it was!  But I really tried to keep it simple and elegant and I think I succeeded, even if I had to talk myself down several times.  Ha!  

The pictures below show the inside also where I used die cut frames and most of the items used are also pictured.  This was a fun one to make, aside from cuffing my hands together to stop.....  #grin. (Oh wait...the butterflies...fussy cut from We R Memory Keepers Inked Rose pad and colored with distress markers) 






Additional Supplies: 
Colorbok Poolside DP, The Paper Studio heat tool, Versamark ink, Tim Holtz distress markers in Salty Ocean and Ripe Persimmon, The Paper Studio Damask paper, Cuttlebug, Zing embossing powder, Stickles stardust glitter glue, Memento London Fog ink and black luxe ink

  14. Beautiful the way they are. I understand when you say you wanna add more stuff. Same thing happens to me sometimes. I usually take a break and when come back I see the project differently.
