Forever and Always

I couldn't resist being inspired by this cake for the new Inspiration Challenge on SCS! The cakes - so unique and non-traditional - are from the Mod Wedding Cakes Board on Pinterest!  I needed to add a wedding card to my stash, so this was the perfect opportunity. Arielle has a great new layout for the Retrosketches Challenge, so I paired up the two and came up with this card. 
I started by adding light modeling paste with a mosaic heart stencil over a textured white piece of cardstock.  Unfortunately, I nearly covered it all up and you can't see that it's a heart. :-/  Some silver
die cut leaves, layered wonky rectangles with a Verve sentiment,  a bit of looped black thread and a large hybrid heirloom rose die by MFT finished off all my elements.  I sponged the rose edges with Pink Pirouette ink and added the same color CS on the one frame layer to give just a wee pop of color.   Instead of an A2 sized card, I went with a 5 1/2" square.

STAMPS: No Matter What (Verve).
ACCESSORIES: Large Marianna Vine Background die by Poppystamps, Large Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-Namics by MFT, Wonky rectangles dies by Spellbinders, Mosaic Heart stencil by Simon Says Stamp, black thread.

Thanks for popping by!  I'm working this weekend, so I need to get hopping and get ready!
