Wedded Bling for Paper Players #198

Hello there! This week at the Paper Players, the always awesome Sandy has a theme challenge for us: "Wedded Bliss". I always seem to need wedding cards, so was excited to try to get creative with this challenge.

I only have two wedding themed stamp sets in my craft room. Crazy, right? I know. I was shocked, too. I may have more but who knows where they are stashed. I had the new Something to Say stamp set on my desk and there is a sentiment perfect for weddings/engagements, etc. I decided to try that out and create some rings out of punches for the main image.
The first color combo I played around with was black, ivory and soft purple. My husband said it looked kind of dark and dreary for a wedding card and I think he was right. Then I remembered that the new Lullaby Designer Series Paper had some patterns with hearts which would tie in to the whole lovey-dovey wedding theme.

The rings were punched out using 3/4" and 1" Circle Punches and Silver Foil paper. I cut one of them so they could be intertwined together. Next time I will be more careful with the adhesive though. It's kind of a pain to get adhesive off the Silver Foil paper without scratching it up.
The ring kind of cracks me up with how big it is. Talk about some bling-bling, right? There is even a little bit of Silver Glimmer Paper behind the rhinestones to make sure it was REALLY sparkly. It ended up being a Kim Kardashian-sized ring. Hmmm, maybe I will send the card to "Kimye" for their recent nuptials. Since I had a scheduling conflict and couldn't make their wedding. Haha! ;)

Finally, here is a quick look at the inside of the card:
