Gold, White and Silver Wedding

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had some sunshine here today but it is so cold. Temps didn't go above mid 20's today. It will be around 12 degrees tomorrow morning. Tough for the kids waiting for the school bus. I hope my grandsons are bundled up.

So the snow we had a few days ago is not melting.  Some hot cocoa and sitting in front of the fireplace checking out the blogs sounds good to me (lol)!!

Well, onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose the color palette of gold, silver and white. She wanted us to make a wedding or anniversary card.

I chose to make a wedding card.  I stamped the wedding silhouette image in memento timber brown on shimmery ivory card stock and then die cut with a Spellbinders square .

I used Stampin-Up brushed gold card stock as my base and on my ivory layer I used the Sizzix embossing folder "kassie's brocade". Used a corner rounder on this layer.

I die cut a Spellbinder lacy square in gold and added some gold designer paper over the square.

To get the silver option in, I added silver pearls around the square and finished my card off with some ivory paper flowers. 

My layout is from Mojo265 sketch.    

That's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time......God bless.
