A Lifetime of Happiness by Penny Black

Once again, I've made a wedding card with "Mimi's Big Day" by Penny Black, but this time I've featured the sentiment "Happiness" on the front of the card.

4249K  Mimi's Big Day; 4185F Happiness;  51-042 Petals
I think this image would be appropriate for anniversary cards, too.  No need to confine it just to weddings.  And the sentiment could be used for graduations, anniversaries and of course, weddings.

I stamped, embossed and colored with Copics the bride and groom image and then fussy cut it and mounted it onto a circle.  I created the background using Penny Black's creative die "Petals", attaching the diecut to a lavender card base.  Mimi has some jewels on her veil and the groom has some falling onto his top hat. 

The sentiment has been heat embossed onto a strip of vellum, which I sewed onto the card front.  If you choose not to sew, you can attach vellum with tiny drops of Glossy Accents.

Mimi's veil is sparkly with Wink of Stella, as is the groom's hat band.

Don't you love it when you can get more than one use from a stamp?? 

Getting ready for Easter here ... mostly wishing for warmth and sunshine.  Have a great weekend!
