Good afternoon lovely bloggers - hope you are all having a happy week. 
It's wet wet wet in this part of Yorkshire, but the leaves are turning into the most gorgeous Autumn colours, which really brightens the day.
I am just popping by to share a Wedding card a friend has ordered - she is going to a
Wedding in Florida quite soon, and asked for something simple and elegant, with a splash of colour to match the bridesmaid's dresses.  Who says simple cards are easy to make?!! I do hope she will like it!! 


Recipe: -

Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up - a mixture of textured and smooth.
Nestie Labels 18. 
Anna Griffin Sentiment inked with Onyx Black Versafine and heat embossed.
Deep purple satin ribbon.
Nestie Fancy Tags 2 separated down the centre and placed under the folded ribbon.
Eazi Score Board used to create two simple lines of embossing at the top and bottom of the card.
Two cream pearls to finish.
I printed the insert with personalised details, and a simple heart and pearl embellishment bearing the wedding date - (of course I can't share due to privacy reasons). 
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:-
Lexi's Creations- Just a Sentiment.
CES Challenge - New Beginnings.

Love to all ~

Sylvia, my daughter is getting married next year and has asked me to make her Invitations ('cos I am cheap!) The Vanilla card you have used here is perfect. Where can I get it from please. Do Stampin up have a proper shop online? I have had a quick look but all I see is info about demonstrators!
Many thanks ...hugs.... Eileen xxxx
