Quixotic Challenge #37: Old, New, Borrowed, Blue...

Hi everyone! Just a quick post to share my DT card for today's new Quixotic Paperie challengeJudy has set the challenge of 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue' either make a wedding card or incorporate one of these elements into your card...old, new, borrowed or blue!

I have chosen to make a wedding card using this beautiful Paper Makeup sentiment stamp called 'The Most Important Thing'.  I cut it out using my Nesties, inked around it using my trusty Versamagic 'Wheat' dew drop ink pad, and then highlighted the words 'life' and 'love' with my R00 Copic pen.  I spent ages adding and taking away embellies from this card, and then decided that it looked 'right' being very simple and elegant so as not to draw the eye away from the gorgeous Memory Box paper, which is from the 'Gossamer' pad.

Supplies available to buy from Quixotic Paperie:

Thanks for dropping by today!  You may see a few more CAS cards from me this week, as I just can't seem to pull myself out of being "in the doldrums" at the moment, and I definitely think my usual mojo has taken off on holiday for a well earned rest! LOL!

Hope you're having a great day!
