Colorful Wedding Card

I normally make white or vanilla wedding cards, but I decided to make a colorful one just to mix things up for a change. I used a Melon Mambo cardbase along with a piece of water colored cardstock. I spread 3 different colors of distress ink (raspberry, spun sugar, worn lipstick) on a silicone craft mat, then spritzed it with water, dipping the cardstock into it here and there until I got the result I was looking for. After it dried completely, I inked up a Repeat Impressions Palm Frond stamp with white craft ink, stamping it all over the pink colors. It turned out so pretty, it was a shame to cover so much of it up. I die-cut the oval with a Gina Marie Designs die, added a small Cheery Lynn Flourish and some tiny inked flowers done with a retired SU! mini punch. The final touch was to add a ribbon and bow and some pearls to the inside of the flowers. 

I used the Repeat Impressions J1318 tic-tac-toe challenge to make my card, basing it along the bottom horizontal row.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start! Stay cool if you can!
