Last black and cream wedding card

Woohoo, here's another series nailed. Here's the last of the black and cream cards. I have not had a chance to use Oakley in his tux and top hat so made a wedding card for a Groom. I wish I had been able to find a stamp like this when my son got married a couple of years ago as I wanted a card specifically for him from his mam and dad. So ... this one is for you son, even though it's 2 years late lol. I just love this stamp - I think it's my favourite of all the wedding stamps (probably because it's the only stamp out there for a groom). I was going to do a sentiment on the PC like "to our son on your wedding day" but didn't get that far, but you get the idea yeah?

I didn't intend for flowers and pearls on but you know me, I have to fill all the corners lol so out came the Basic Grey brads instead of the pearls, some hydrangeas and the glimmer mists for the flowers. Not sure on the ribbon but the card was too stark without it. I used that FAB!!!!! Martha Stewart flourish punch for the bottom of the card again, and also punched along the black piece to carry the flourish through. How brill is this punch!!! And to think when it arrived in my DT kit I hadn't a clue what to do with it and thought it was going to be consigned to a drawer never to see the light of day - wrong! I love it!!

Oh I forgot to say I'm entering this card in the Creative Card Crew's challenge which is weddings.

Recipe:
Stamp: Whiff of Joy Oakley as Groom
Paper: Kaiser from The Hobby House
Tools: Martha Stewart Flourish border punch (The Hobby House)
Embellies: Basic Grey Boxer brads, gold spacer and hydrangeas (zapped with glimmer mists) all from The Hobby House

Thanks for stopping by,

  54. This is fantastic, Bev. I have been looking for découpage papers depicting only a groom 'cos I have 3 cards to do for a son but can't find any. I wish I had the confidence to colour a stamped image as you do.I must really give it a try. I just love the black and cream colourway
