Love does not....


My sister is getting married on Saturday and this is the card I've made for them.  The quote is a Quietfire Design image (see it here) stamped with Archival Ink jet black.  I've cut the quote out with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen and added Distress Ink around the edges.  The flourishy background paper is old and not marked.  The green strip is white cardstock torn, inked with bundled sage, and stamped with a script image using Archival Ink coffee.  The lacy strip is a Martha Stewart punch... it's punched from white cardstock, colored with Distress Inks.. didn't totally like it so sponged Lumiere True Gold paint over it, dried it, and added some Archival Ink coffee along the edges.  The leaves are a Sizzix die cut from green cardstock, sponged a bit with green ink and sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist.  The flowers are Prima with a little extra color added using Distress Stains spun sugar and fired brick.
