Caedvarks "get published " challenge

Hey! Happy super bowl Sunday!! I got up early today to work on a few challenges/Valentine cards. It seems like a long time since I was able to play in my craft room. So far I have 3 cards to share with you today :) I will only be posting one at a time....just the way I like to do it ;) This is my first one....a beautiful Wedding card for the Cardvarks "get published" challenge for CARDS Magazine. Now don't get me wrong...I don't expect to have this published, sooooo many other beauties!!! Just wanted to play along anyway!! I have been trying  to step outside my box lately with some new patterned papers & different style & just not loving it...so today back to my same old plain & simple style...the style I feel most comfy with :)
This is my card:

The paper is from my stash...The stamp set is JRS (don't you just love it) loving the square ones!!  I used black embossing powder & used a pink copic marker for a hit of pink in the heart. PTI black paper & my favorite michaels ribbon for the yummie bow!! My new blog friend Karylon has me hooked on charms now!! Enabler!!! The little heart charm I got at Michaels by blue moon. It is hard to see but I also added tiny pink rhinestones to my image. I hope you all get a chance to play along with this one!! No sketch or color combo...Just a wedding theme & your own imagination!!! I'll be back later with another post! :)

This is sooo pretty, Gwen, NOT plain or simple, in my opinion! IF I had a mag., I'd publish it -- without a doubt!!! It's quite simply G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S to me!!!

Gwen said...

Beautiful, Gwen! So elegant, will be watching for your next creations!

Mabel said...

Are you kidding me?! Gwen, this is stunning! I love that silver paper, and the combo with the pink and black is just stunning!! I nearly peed myself at your enabler comment!! That's my job! LOL Let's play soon!
