Time Out Challenge #33 - Inspired by Words

We are being inspired by words this time around at the Time Out Challenge blog!  And the words are:
Happy is the bride that the sun shines on...
Here's my take on those words.  This is an oldie but goodie stamp from Inkadinkadoo.  It wasn't my first choice.  I couldn't find the stamp I originally wanted, but guess when I found it?  That's right...just after I finished this one!  Isn't that always the way things happen?  Anyway, I first stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it in white.  Then I took some picked raspberry ink and watercolored the image.  Spun sugar was watercolored around it so the image showed up a bit more.  The sentiment was stamped in smoky slate ink and I added sequins (mine never look as good as some other stampers!) and a strip of pink cardstock.  The main panel is mounted on a basic gray base.
Our guest for this challenge is Sue.  You can see her card and the DT cards on the Time Out blog.
I'm also entering this into Virginia's View challenge.  I think it qualifies.
Thanks for stopping by!

It may be an older stamp, but it is one of the first I saw when I started stamping and buying stamps and I think it is still such a beauty!
Great how you used the pastel pinks; to me that are colours you will see at every wedding...
Enjoy the weekend, Gerrina
