Such great Inspiration.....

I have been following a blog of a wonderful scrapper called Sherrie Scraps with passion .  If you haven't visited her blog I suggest you do because she is so inspiration and shares great instructions on different things she does with her cards.  This wedding card was made with a recent post she shared as inspiration.  Although alot of the card is different the basic design and techniques are there.

I used a stamp from Hampton Art Cling Stamps and colored in with my copic markers and fussy cut it out for my couple on the front of the card.  The back ground cut is from forever young which Sherrie used as her base of her card.  I didn't even know that was on that cart and looked so great with her cut she used that it gave me the idea to try this glamorous  couple.  I folowed her instruction she gave in a tutorial on the bow and decided to hang a few charms from it to glam my card up a little and also did some embossing with my cuddlebug and distressed with Tim Holtz Inks bundle sage and antique linen.  Making cards is a learning process that I try different styles and types.  This card has a little vintage flair to it !!

Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think I can always use constructive criticism.
