Stampsmith 2nd Challenge

I made the following card for a recent Wedding and as an entry for the 2nd Stampsmith challenge:

The only requirements were to use a Stampsmith rubber stamp and black, white and a third colour of your own choice, so I chose the colours that were used for the wedding decor.  The romantic couple on the moon is one of my favorite Stampsmith images.  I stamped it with Ancient Page ink on glossy cardstock, used my corner rounder tool and then mounted it on a black cardstock cut with the Sizzix Big Shot "BIGZ Top Note" made for Stampin' Up.  I embossed the card with the Cuttlebug "Birds and Swirls" plate, and used a Stampin' Up marker to colour the flowers in the image.  The caption is also a Stampsmith rubber. The ink is "Pink Passion", also from SU.  The pink pearls are from the dollar store, and the ribbon was part of my stash.

Did you notice the Stampsmith badge that I am proudly displaying in my sidebar?  My "Dream with Your Eyes" card for the 1st challenge was one of 3 cards that were featured by the designers last week --- thanks ladies -- that really brightened up my day!

Creative blessings :),
