PPA Challenge #2

This week from our Pals Paper Arts Challenge comes to us a sketch challenge. I know in less than a month I am going to need some wedding cards, so here is one I made using this week's sketch.

Ingredients to make the card:
Stamp Set: Wedding Sweet
Ink: Gold
Paper: Whisper White and Brushed Gold
Accessories: Gold Brads, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder
Tools: Heat Tool, Eyelet Border Punch

Special touches on the card: This card is a 5x5 card. I cut the white card stock a 1/4" smaller on the top and the bottom and attached it to the gold when I was done. Before I did I punched a eyelet border on the top and then cut a strip of bottom half so that way the eyelet border shows through the gold. As a special touch, I heat embossed the gold to give it a little shimmer and bling.
