My son took the photo of this card so I did not manage to get a picture of the inside. I have all sorts of wedding stamps that I could have used for this card but in the end the embellishments were what popped into my head for this card.

Third and final.. (for now) card with Tulip Bouquet. I stamped the image with StazOn Black then used my watercolor pencils to add color. I added light green pearls as small accents.
I have 2 card workstops this weekend, one tonight with Close to my Heart then in Sunday Stampin' Up! so I will post some of the cards from those maybe tomorrow or next week.

This Tulip Bouquet stamp is one I picked up last weekend from a nice lady selling some of her stamps to make room... for more I am guessing. I wanted to see how many different cards I can make with it until I wanted to move on to something else. This is the first in three so far.
This stamp has so much detail I wanted it to be the focal point on this card with out to many extras.

I used multiple layers to build up this card. I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with black versafine ink. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss dots Embossing folder to get the texture so that there did not look like a lot of empty space. I stamped the Happy Birthday with Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Pigment Ink.
Supples: Black and red cardstock, Inkadinkado – Rock Star, Stampin’ Up! – Birthday wishes, Black & White Jazzy Brads.

I apparently am not the best of wives, I followed the rules and only gave a card. Mind you I made it, I can lie and say I slaved over it for hrs but... who would I be kidding.
I have been so lazy with setting up the light tent lately, if I can find a patch of sun then I am fine with snapping a picture. It does make the colors pretty bright though. This card is burgundy not the almost hot pink that it appears. Maybe it is because it is a shimmer card stock.. I chose the burgundy and cream because those are colors we used for our wedding.
Supplies: Cream and burgundy cardstock, All night Media - Happy Anniversary, cream misc ribbon, black gems, bugundy Stamp'in Up! embossing powder.
I used a Cuttlebug Spots and Dots embossing folder for the top half, then used a EK Success - Slim Profile Paper Edger Punche for the bottom.
