It's A Sock Monkey Wedding!

Well, I'm back, everyone! And with a new challenge for you, over at Catch The Bug. Our theme, this time, is "Going To The Chapel.  That's right, its the month of June Brides, so we want to see your wedding creations this week! Remember, our Saturday challenge is once a week and there are awesome prizes up for grabs, from Bugaboo Stamps.

To view the wedded bliss inspiration and link up your creations, come over to Catch The Bug and see the challenge details, as well as gorgeous creations from the team!

My card features the image, Sock Monkey - Wedding Couple, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. I went with browns and deep reds for my color scheme.  My card layout uses the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. (I never win there, but I still love to use their sketches!) I've used cranberry red pearls to accent two corners of one panel.  All papers are from my stash and are made by Stampin Up.  The two punched areas are punched with the word window and modern label punches by Stampin Up.  I've used the "For The Newlyweds" sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, from Stampin Up. The flowers are by Prima and are accented with tiny cranberry red pearls for the flower centers.
