Forever Begins Now.

Yet another release day at CHF! Isn't it exciting? Today it's from the Mona Lisa Moments line and it's called Wedding Centers. You'll notice that I paired today's beautiful sentiment with I Thee Wed from the recently released Kim Hughes Collection by CHF. Coincidence?...I think not. That Mona...she thinks in harmony :)

I adore traditional colours when it comes to weddings so I paired grey, white and black together to make this card. If you have a close look you'll see I also used a clear sheet. I stamped the cake image on the front of the clear sheet and "coloured" the icing using the pearl ranger acrylic paint dabber (I wanted to create an authentic icing look) and black ranger paint dabber for the base. Now keep in mind this is not a quick card. You need to let that paint dry overnight.



I added gemstones over top of the circles for some cake bling. I also stapled some May Arts polka dot ribbon to the clear sheet. Using my label die cut from Spellbinders, I placed my Forever Begins Now sentiment (Mona Lisa Moments) in the center and used polka dot sheer ribbon to dress it up!
