So glad that Connie was chosen as Queen - she makes wonderful cards and is very kind and generous with her comments. I very nearly CASEd her pretty faux tile card, but remembered how much I like this when it was first posted: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=59955
The card that I designed is also black tie, which qualifies for the fan club monthly theme.
BFF Judy's daughter is getting married this summer. She is very low maintenance but does love her bling, so I thought that this layout would work well. I masked the pearl from a Recollections paper rose and sprayed with Krylon 18 Karat spray. I also punched some MS branches from cream CS and gilded some of them. While they were drying, I stamped the mr/ mrs from SU Together Forever in Whisper White, then the ampersand in Galaxy Gold on CTMH black and clear embossed. Scored lines on the top and bottom of the panel. Applied the rose and branches, then added the recollections bling. Mounted all on a Flourishes cream card. PT - 6
Thanks so much for looking and have a peaceful day.

Oooh, definitely couldnt pass this by. I think your card is exquisite. One of my favorite color combinations is black and gold. In fact, all my work brochures, etc are black and gold. My business cards are black and gold, so I guess you get the picture that I love black and gold together. In my eyes, it rich, elegant and hands above all the other colors. The new Mr and Mrs. will surely love your card.
