Saturday Sketch Challenge, Stampin Up Love & Laughter, Wedding

Good Evening Friends!

With so many elements to this week's sketch challenge, I felt a little intimidated when sitting down to create my card.  I decided to keep it mostly white...  Well, did I have fun!

I don't have a wedding or shower to go to.. but I grabbed the love and laughter stamp set anyway.  hmmm how about a supply list first.

Stamps: Love and laughter
Ink: stazon black and primrose petals (for sponging on the background
Paper: Black, white and 2012-2014 in color designer paper
Accessories: stitched satin in primrose petals, the new dahlia's (my FAVORITE new thing!) the finishing touches edgelits, and floral fusion sizzlits.  (oh my!), Manhattan Flower Embossing folder, and stampin sponges.  Glue dots, dimensionals and tombo multipurpose liquid glue.  :) 

I LOVE this card!  :)

So how about some measurements:
Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded in half at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4" black
Layer 3: whisper white 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
Layer 4: 1 1/2 x 5 1/2" cut with the finishing touch edgelit on the big shot. 
Layer 5: primrose petals 2 3/8" x 3 3/8"
Layer 6: 2 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Then the flowers were cut with the floral fusion sizzlit from stampin up's big shot die cutting machine.  I used a glue dot to ad the dahlia.

It's not my normal clean and simple (which I love so much).  However, I am loving the way this one turned out.  TGIF!!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 

Tomorrow, I'm stamping with my friends from elementary school.  I don't think any of them have ever held a stamp.  I can't wait to share what I love so much with my old friends (who are still quite young).  :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
