A Wedding Card (mojo monday 130)

I absolutely LOVED the design team creations this week at Mojo Monday. The sketch was a little intimidating because I wasn't sure that I could incorporate that many different colors or patterns into one card. Then I had an idea...monochromatic. I have a wedding coming up before too long that I picked up some paper for. It is DCWV 'white wedding words'. I had a pile of grey/white/black patterned papers in my scraps baggie and I picked a few that seemed to coordinate. I inked the edges to give it a little more definition between the papers.

After settling on my papers it occurred to me that it fit perfectly with the color challenge on a blog I just found the other day, Secret Crafters. The challenge was to use only shades of grey. I hope white and black are okay because I thought they made for nice contrasts.

The stickers are from the wedding decorations aisle at Wal-Mart. There is a flat sticker with a duplicate image raised slightly with pop dots. The ribbon is just a grey satin edged piece from my leftover pieces box. Click HERE to see the original sketch at Mojo Monday and to give it a try yourself.
