The Key To Today & Giveaway

Today I am sharing a card designed for my Niece's upcoming wedding. The design is inspired by the Unity Stamp Company Be Inspired sketch challenge {things} i love, {places} i love, {family} i love.  It is also included in today's Unity Friends With Flair.  I have blog candy!!!


The front sentiment: the key to today
The inside: And now these three remain: Faith, Hope and Love And the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13



The sketch challenge is:


My goal for this card was a rustic, country feel and a wedding theme.  I used a larger scalloped tag to fit the Unity stamp that is the focal point.  The background is flourishes with type print in there. I added frayed burlap, lace, heart buttons, cording and pearls. The inside sentiment was printed and trimmed to fit.
