Wedding Congrats!

Happy Monday Everyone!

I trust you all had a wonderful weekend!  I did.  I spent some time this weekend celebrating some birthdays with some very special friends.  We spent Friday night together crafting until the wee hours of the morning on Saturday.  Between the three of us, we managed to create quite a number of cards.  We also got to enjoy lots of food and some libations so it was quite fun. :)

This morning I want to thank the ladies over at Sunday Stamps as my beach themed "H is for Happy" birthday card was chosen as one of the top picks this week.  Thank ladies!  You can check out my card HERE!

The first of the cards I will be sharing with you from our crafting session on Friday night is a card I created for my Husband's cousin who will be getting married next month.  I took the inspiration from her beautiful wedding invitation.  I photographed the back so you all could have a look:

I was lucky enough that this week over at CAS - Colours and Sketches blog, the challenge was to use Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant and Crushed Curry.  I thought this would work perfectly with my ideas for this card.

I was also in love with this week's sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  The card easily came together after this...

From all of this inspiration, here is the card that I created:

To create some of the lighter colours, I simply stamped off using both the Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant inks.  I love how the "splatters" look using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from Stampin' Up! - don't you?  I think this will become one of my favs!
