CAS(E) this Sketch #28 - Mr & Mrs

I had an idea as soon as I saw this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - a very literal take on it, but I do love how it turned out. Mostly. 



Supplies: Inkadinkado bridal couple; PTI sentiment, circles, and hearts (various sets); Memento Gray Flannel ink; Spun Sugar distress ink; Picket Fence distress stickles

I regret the Stickles. Not only did I stick my finger in them (more than once) before they were dry, they didn't really turn my crank on this card. Oh well. It's hard to see but I've stamped the largest circles in Spun Sugar ink off-stamped once - in person it definitely helps to balance the scattered dots, but even full-size it's very hard to make out in the photo.

I'm pretty sure it was the heart in the sketch that shoved me towards a wedding card - gotta love that!

xoxo,
Jessi

You sound like me.....I think they should make Stickles that dry instantly! LOL!
Love this beautiful card - and it's perfect for a young (or old) couple getting married! The way you did the background is stunning! Very elegant!
