Stamptacular Sunday

Today is the first challenge for a brand new challenge blog called Stamptacular Sunday!! And the theme was perfect! NEW BEGINNINGS! The DT have some awesome samples on the blog!

Yesterday, we received a wedding invitation in the mail. Next month our nephew will be getting married and the invite was handmade! It's not very often that I received a handmade wedding invite! So after visiting Stamptacular Sunday and discovering their 'new beginnings' theme....I thought I'd take the wedding invite apart and make a card for them with it! I thought it was a great idea!! Sometimes I even surprise myself!!

FYI: I used the names, vellum, ribbon and charm from the original card.

It was difficult getting a good picture of the card because of the vellum and the light colors. Under the vellum I fancy cut out the bride and groom's names and attached. Also, there are some stamped bells and glasses on the pink part of the card, but I don't think you can see them!

I'm hoping they will be totally surprised when they open this card!!
