Mr. & Mrs. {S} SFYTT

Have I told you how much I love weddings? Probably not, but I do...I really do! I had so much fun planning and preparing for my own wedding and I would absolutely love to be a wedding planner. I am always thrilled when we receive a wedding invitation. Unfortunately, my son and husband will not be able to attend the reception with us, but Rowan, Emma and I will go. Of course I need a card and this week's fabulous {SFYTT} sketch by Jen is perfect.


I knew that I wanted to really make the circle image a big focal point and then work the rest of the details into the other embellishment areas. I also knew that I wanted to use this paper from "The Paper Studio". I pulled out my trusty Heart Prints stamp set and got to work. I love how the clock made a perfect backdrop for the two stamped hearts. I don't have many wedding stamp sets, but I knew that this reliable "Mr. and Mrs." sentiment from Stampin' Up! would work nicely to pull the two hearts together.



I am a big fan of monogramming. I think it is really classy and especially fitting on a wedding card. I used this alphabet for the "S" and this stamp set for the border around the "S". I punched it out along with a couple of other circles for some added interest. Since I had worked the clock into my design, I computer generated the sentiment that tied it all together. I was especially excited to use this ribbon that I have had for a couple of years. I have used it on a couple of other projects, but it was absolutely perfect for this card. Don't you love it when that happens? I added some silver gems to finish it off. Now all I have to do is get the gift! LOL! I have something in mind that I spied the other day.

I love the colors on your card. It's so rich and elegant looking. The hearts on the clock are fantastic and the sentiment does pull them together perfectly.

What a super pretty card! I love all your design elements and the pretty papers! I really love how you can use all those layers, I have a hard time with that. I'll have to come back to your blog and see if I can find more inspiration on that.
