For The Newlyweds

It's Marvelous Monday, again, at Shelly's Images. This week, we were supposed to be featuring The Bride and Groom image, and the boots image last week. There was some confusion though, and the bride and groom image was featured last week. I had posted my boots image last week, so this week, I'm posting my Bride and Groom card. Regardless of which image is featured, its always a Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images! And that means a discounted price on the featured image in Shelly's Store! Hurry over and pick today's sale image, before it's too late!

My project today features this beautiful Bride and Groom image by Shelly's Images. I've colored it with Promarkers and added glitter and sparkle with my clearstar gelly roll pen. I think this image is so pretty and elegant, so I wanted to reflect that in my project. I chose a cream colored paper with metallic gold flourishes, as well as a cream and tan sentiment paper and matched those with metallic gold cardstock. It turned out to be a fabulous combination and turned out so elegant. I love the way this turned out. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin Up, and punched using the oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up. I've mounted the sentiment with foam mounting tape, for dimension.
