WWC187 - Kath's All About Occasions Challenges
Occasions happen all year long, and it's nice to have a stash of cards all ready to go at a moments notice.

This week I'm sharing a card I made at the request of my sister. She needed a wedding card for the daughter of a friend of her's. The wedding couple, she said, are outdoor enthusiasts and animal lovers.

Perfect opportunity to use the Animal Outing stamp set.
 I started by stamping the giraffe image onto Whisper White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the silicone craft mat and the Stamparatus, it was a breeze to do a reverse stamped image.

To dress up the bride and groom, I found a piece of white tulle ribbon with pearls along each edge in my stash. Perfect for a veil! For the groom, I cut a piece of the black glitter ribbon and tied a piece of thick black Baker's Twine around it.

The heart was puched from a piece of retired glimmer paper. I stamped an arch of leaves using the branch stamp from Animal Outing and Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce. The sentiment is also from Animal Outing, but I replaced the word "we" by stamping "you" from another set in Bermuda Bay on a scrap piece of Whisper White, then cut it out. It's popped up with a dimensional.

A Bermuda Bay mat under the image panel makes it stand out from the DSP from Serene Scenery (ret.). The card base is also Bermuda Bay.

To finish everything off, I added a sprinkling of Black Rhinestones to the branches.
