Live Richly and Savor Life

Just for fun and using up some scraps. I was playing around with this scrap that I had received from Jacqueline (thank you!). I have been hoarding this label as it is gorgeous and I wanted to create something special. 

I started with the label and stamping the hydrangeas (Hero Arts) onto the label in black ink. The images were colored with watercolor pencils. The edges were already finished in gold. I continued the gold edges on all the additional layers of the card. The doily was a leftover from another project. The front of the card was stamped using the lace background stamp (Hero Arts) using Memento soft plum.

I added a little charm of a wedding couple and I think this could work for a lovely wedding card or anniversary card.

I hope your Saturday is wonderful!
