Wedding Bells are ringing

We are going to a wedding this weekend. This card doesn't look very "wedding like" at first glance but I'll show you what the invitation looks like and you'll understand. If I had gotten my act together in time to get this done for last week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge, my song inspiration would have been "I'm Getting Married in the Morning" from My Fair Lady. I took my mom home to Nebraska last weekend and listened to Broadway show tunes all the way back to Indiana on my satelite radio. Must have heard this one at least twice. :)

My sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps and can be found here. I stamped it with Versafine black ink and cut it out with my circle nestie. I think it works very well for a wedding card. I used black cardstock to back the sentiment and cut the shape with my new Peony nestie. I added a few blue rhinestones and a double bow of black organza ribbon. What shows up as black blobs on the photo are actually large faceted black jet "jewels".

I added the star in the corner because the bride and the groom both have degrees in theatre performance and are moving to NYC early next year to begin their careers as professional actors. Here is a photo of the wedding invitation. They are great young adults who have a really bright future. It will be fun to celebrate with them this weekend.

Hope your weekend is fabulous!
