OWH Wedding

This week's OWH Sunday Sketch was perfect for a wedding card I had to make.  The theme is rustic vintage I believe (or rustic elegance one or the other)  Anyway, I helped the bride to be design the invites  - really just supplied some ideas and she took off running.  The invites are gorgeous and I wanted to make a card for the wedding in a similar vein

 I used the same basic colors of the invite (Early Espresso and Fine Linen) as well as the same texture / impression plates (Distressed and Wood Grain).  I dyed some white satin ribbon with Early Espresso re-inker to get the custom ribbon and used linen thread and a vintage wood button to finish off the look.
The sentiments are from Big & Bold Wishes

Thanks for stopping!


  1. Very pretty wedding card. The rustic look is unexpected, and beautifully done!

  2. The sketch is perfect for this sentiment. I like the earthy colors... unusual for a wedding card and very striking!

  3. Very pretty! I love the rustic elegance. :)

  4. Oh I love this, Maureen! That wooden button is the perfect touch. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
