Creative approach to Stamp Something Challenge

Now the challenge this week at Stamp Something is Summer Fun BUT I have a CAPM certification exam next week and I was pretty sure I would need to sit out the challenge. Then I got a commission for a wedding card and since I don't get them too often and every penny is welcome with me at home, I accepted it.

After I had finished it I kinda thought - well, it's summer and weddings ARE fun (unless your mom tells you your hairdo makes you look like a hooker but lets not go there).

So, here's the card:
I used a whole lot of Nesties, pretty papers from Pink Paislee and delicious chipboard by Make It Crafty.
The image is coloured with Copic Markers.
I added some Flower Soft and Stickles to the image to boost it slightly.
