My Sheri Crafts Challenge #85-Wedding/Anniversary Card

Hello!  I'm so glad you stopped by!  It's time for a Wedding/Anniversary challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  Use Black and White With a Pop of Color and start getting ready for those summer weddings!

  I have a card to share with you today that I'm really excited about.  I just love the way it turned out!

The card base is Colorbok Glitter Paper in black for a finished size of 5 1/2 x 6.  The next layer is black and white patterned paper a friend gave me from a B&W paper pack she bought at Hobby Lobby.  The white and silver paper is from The Paper Studio 1 lb paper pack.
 The lable cut is from Lacy Labels cut at 3 1/2 and 3.3 (sized on my Gypsy).  The white layer is embossed with my Cuttlebug using a Quickutz folder and inked with red.  The rose is cut from Potpourri Basket at 2 1/2 and accented with red glitter glue from Studio G.  The bloom is pop dotted at the top only, so the flower actually raises toward you just a bit. 
 The lace is from Wal-Mart and the pearls are from Premier Quality and were given to me by a friend.  The pictures don't show just how pretty these pearls are!  They are kind of a glass pearl and really shiny.  LOVE 'EM!!
LOTS of sparkle and shine to this card!

 The inside is finished with another layer  of the patterned paper, black cardstock and white, inked with red.
This card could easily work for a wedding or anniversary either one, but I think I'm going to stamp the inside with a wedding sentiment and give it to my niece, who is getting married in June. 

Well, it's time for you to head to your craft area and pull out some black and white and get creating.  Don't forget your pop of color!  Then link it up at My Sheri Crafts!  You just may be our next Guest Designer or win an "Ooh-La-Lah" Blog Award!  Be sure to check out the beautiful work of my DT Sisters!  Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!
