With this ring...

Hello, wonderful friends! Dave and I had a wedding to go to yesterday! We {{heart} weddings because it makes us think of our own day and vows!
The bride is a coworker of Dave's so we don't know the couple extremely well. The occasion called for a nice card and a gift of $! Sooo, I spent Saturday morning making this card for them. I have had this stamp (Wedding Couple)for awhile since my friend Michele introduced me to Lili of the Valley stamps last fall. My nephew is getting married in June so I ordered the stamp in case I wanted it for their card. So happy I got to use it sooner!
Our invitation had dark blue on it so I went with blue as a focus color on the card. Then I wanted some kind of elegant paper and went looking through the many places that I have paper stashed in my studio! I found this older pattern by MME and went from there. Even though the card had white I decided the cream paper and linen colored ribbon added a nice touch.
I photographed the inside, but forgot to post it. I used the same PTI lace edge die inside and made a pocket for their gift.
I'll add a photo into my next post to show you.
Off to do some more crafting today! Maybe I'll get ahead which would be a pleasant change before the busy week starts!
Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great one! Cheryl
