Mr and Mrs

finished size - 5 x 7

This is going into Atlantic Heart Challenge .  I was inspired by the sketch
And I was also inspired by the this card by Cathy's  HERE

This is also going into Penny Black Photo Inspiration Challenge

This is going into Double D Challenge Flowers Galore:

And into Time Out Challenge Flowers and Friends make life a garden - This is for one of my best friend's son's wedding. 

The inside of the card - also used a bit of the Concord and 9th stamp on vellum.  The sentiments are from 2 PTI sets.

Stamps:  Mr and Mrs = PTI,  Wood Grain = Heidi Swapp, flower (large cluster) = Concord & 9th, flower (small cluster) = Sweet Impressions

Papers: watercolor (for wood grain), colors = PTI, vellum (for flowers)

1) wood grain - stamped with distress ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder - watercolor washed over with a light gray distress ink
2) Mr and Mrs - cut stamp apart - embossed with a mix of embossing powders
3) vellum flowers - white embossed, colored on the back with Stampin Up markers - ala Jennifer McQuire HERE , then fussy cut - adhered with liquid adhesive - a few "pearls" and rhinestones to embellish.

Thank you for taking the time to look.  Hope your day is going well.
