Happy Foreverness

I made this card for this month's Waltzingmouse Stamps waltz - if you've stumbled here by accident, head over to the Mouse House to get started!

This month's theme is "vintage/shabby chic" and I chose one old and one new set to make this wedding card (now all it needs is something borrowed and blue, right?) I started the card with the lovely background paper and some lace, then made the labels, distressed the edges in a number of ways, and finished the card off with some shabby seam binding and a wonderful vintage button. I think this fits the bill, don't you?

Supplies: Stamps - Irish Blessings, Fancy Phrases (WMS), DP (DCWV), Cardstock - Chocolate Chip (SU!), Ink - Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Lace (Crafta), Seam Binding (Etsy), Button (eBay), Distressing Tool (Making Memories), Foam Squares
