Welcome back everybody :)

Just a quick post before my husband hijacks the computer for a work trip....

My husband's family is Italian. Therefore we get invited to quite a few celebrations - the latest being a wedding. We won't be attending as it's interstate (and I have never actually met the couple so I feel a bit funny about going), but I have put together this little card to send on our best wishes.

I am still on my self imposed challenge to use up supplies I already have, so I tried to come up with something that tied in with the black and silver wedding invitation we received. I think I did OK. Simple and elegant.

Card stock by American Crafts (Ash)
The grey vellum and lovely embossed paper is from my scrap drawer so I am unsure as to the brands. 
"Congratulations" rub-on, pearls and grey grosgrain ribbon by Kaisercraft
Buckle by Christina Re
Silver ribbon also from my scrap drawer. 

This embossed paper is so pretty. I used it previously on some Christening invitations.

Well I am sure the bride and groom will have a lovely wedding day with jovial celebrations to follow.
I think my next project will be more Christmas cards - stay tuned. You can see the ones I made recently here.

Thanks for stopping by :)
