Scottish Wedding!!


My son and his girlfriend are going to a traditional Scottish wedding next week and asked me to make a special card for it.  I found the perfect blue tartan ribbon and based my card around it,  the photo doesn't do the ribbon justice as the blue is really vibrant and rich, with the weather the way it is at the moment this is the best I can do!!  I have used the thistle stamp from the Hero Arts elegant weed set and stamped and embossed it in silver.
I am going to add this to two challenges "Shopping Our Stash" which is to use two forms of embossing!! and "Simon Says" Wednesday challenge to use rubber or clear stamps.

Hope you are having a great weekend.
