Sister Act Challenge #20

I needed a card for my niece's wedding shower and wanted to make it look elegant.  Unfortunately, I waited until the last minute to make it, so I didn't have time for something elaborate.  That is where my sizeable stash of patterned papers came in handy!! I recently bought this delicious Authentique paper.  Unfortunately, between this card and another one I made, I have used more than half of it.  I most definitely need to buy another piece!   The combination of colors is simply gorgeous.  I paired the paper with a stamp that hasn't been inked in a few years from American Art Stamp.  It's called "Bouquet" by artist Karen Stolper.  Karen's stamps are quick to color and easy to use in creating a gorgeous focal point.  A few Copic Ws, YRs, and Es are all that were needed!

Hope you will enter a card in the Sister Act Challenge Blog this week.   Our sponsor is Wings and Willows.
