The Shabby Tea Room has given us a gorgeous inspiration picture - so romantic and elegant! Here is my take on it:
The things that I loved about the inspiration were the mirror, the silver candlesticks, the cream candles, and the tiny flower branch. I first tried making a clear card, but stamping in white on acetate wouldn't show up against my stamped damask background, so I tried embossing the floral flourish in silver on vellum, and was pleased with that result. (my unknown silver embossing powder is quite thick and chunky and makes a thick shiny finish when heated, with pretty good coverage). Then I added a multi-layer cream and white flower, centered with a big pearl cabochon. I thought my sentiment would work for an anniversary or a wedding. The lace does double duty: in addition to adding a little more romance and texture, it helps hold the 2 layers (vellum and cardstock) together.
