Wedding Shower Card


(Second post today, scroll down for the first.) Nice shadow, huh? :-D This was a card I made for a wedding shower. The color scheme for the shower, and the whole wedding, was black, white, and red. Really striking, and I wanted to continue the theme with the card. The card was big, at least 6"x6", because it was for a group and we all needed to sign it. I used Dawn McVey's Scattered Showers stamp set from Papertrey Ink and papers, ink, etc. from my stash. I'm afraid I'm not very good at remembering the company names for my supplies if they aren't in their original packaging, so I will be saying, "from my stash," a lot. I am making a much better effort to keep track now that I know I should be doing it! It's a simple card, which is ironic since I usually find simple very hard to do. I was really proud of myself for editing and not going crazy with the frou-frou. :-)
