Wedding Ballons Fly Away

Yesterday I attended a beautiful wedding, set in the most idyllic setting, out in the country with a barn and a field of straw glowing in the background.  The wedding took place under a HUGE oak tree and the reception in the barn.  As the sun was setting they opened the two back doors and the bride and groom shared a lovely kiss with the sunlight shining in the backdrop!  It was like walking into a pinterest board!  They did not serve wedding cake, instead a local vendor with a teardrop trailer set up shop and fried the most delectable mini donuts!  So Cute!

So here is the card I made them.  The color inspiration came from their invites which I might add were adorable.  It had the cutest font.  At the wedding I saw that font all over the place, on tags, on handwritten sign...come to find out it was the bride's handwriting!!!  I guess there is software out in the big wide web that will turn your handwriting into a font and that's what they must have used for their invites, it was just adorable!  There's pictures on Instagram if I really piqued your curiosity you can check them out there under #castonjamboree.

Ok so here you go:

I used an adorable Penny Black cling stamp and inked it up with Studio Calico color theory dye ink in  Sunny Day and Coral Bay.  I added a Tim Holtz banner stamped with the Penny Black sentiment included with the image stamp using Momento Luxe in Gray Flannel.  I thought the grey would look softer than black and it was really nice.  I added a strip of Authentique paper to the top and some sequins dotted all around.  Had to hide a yucky smudge with one of them, won't say which one, but I think it turned out all right!

I haven't entered any challenges in a while so I thought I would give a few a shot again:
