Winter Wedding

Well I am loving using this month's Creative Expressions DT stamp set - the fabulous Sentimental Art by Wendy Vecchi. I wondered if it could be used for a wedding card and this is what I made. 
The background is the incredibly versatile fabric background stamp from the set - I used Old Paper Distress Ink which makes it look like really old lace in real life and added a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges. In my last DT post I said that these stamps compliment each other perfectly and they do! 
The heart was stamped in clear ink and clear embossed and then inked with Old Paper Distress Stain. I scored the edges and then inked them with a little Vintage Photo as before. The sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo I added a flourish, a few gems and an ivory ribbon.
