Happy I Do Day - PPA 298

Today's inspiration comes from this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge 298.  I needed a sketch to use for a monthly swap for a congratulations theme - graduation, wedding, etc.  Here's the sketch:


Once I had my layout selected, I chose to use some of the Love Blossoms designer series paper stack.  Here's my swap card:

Stamp set: Word Play and (inside) For the New Two
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Rose Red, Whisper White and Love Blossoms dsp stack
Ink: Blushing Bride and Versamark
Accessories: Texture Boutique, Spring Flowers TIEF, heating tool, Blushing Bride embossing powder embossing buddy, white tea lace paper doilies, basic rhinestones, stampin' dimensionals, and tombow adhesive

I really liked the texture and dimension this card has.  I was going to add some ribbon, but thought it might be too much for the card.  The rhinestone seemed to add the right amount of bling to the ring.  Can't wait to get the rest of my swaps.
