Mr. & Mrs.

I am clearing the clutter from my craft room/writing office.  While I hunkered down for the holidays and a few author-ish duties, things just piled up.  As I cleared off my work space, I discovered a wedding invitation I should have responded to a couple weeks ago.


The invitation is deep gray and dark purple with a large "&" in the corner.  Using it as my inspiration, and stealing the ribbon that was tied around it, I came up with this:

I am entering it into this week's Heart2Heart challenge.  It's a tic-tac-toe challenge.  I went straight across the middle row with stamping/ribbon/distressing.  Where's the distressing, you ask?  Why, right there on the ribbon.  I used my scissors to fray the edges.  I'm counting that as distressing.

The stamps and ink are CTMH. The letters are from the Artfully Sent alphabet (retired Pansy Purple ink) and the ampersand is from Happy Mail (Slate ink).  The puffy hearts are also from CTMH, but I colored the small, purple one with Copic markers to change it from light pink to deep purple.  The corsage pins are secured with Liquid Glass.

Hopefully the happy couple will forgive my tardiness when this arrives.

Until next time,


  1. I love this cards. Pretty, simple and elegant. Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart

  2. Your card is beautiful! I love the repurposing of the invitation ribbon, and frayed edges count as distressing to me. Thanks for playing tic-tac-toe with us @ H2H!

  3. Sometimes the simplest cards make the biggest statements - I love this! The dark ribbon really sets off the sentiment in the lower corner. Thanks for joining us at H2H!

  4. Wonderful card. I love the simplicity of it, very impactful! Thanks for playing along with H2H!
