Hand Stamped Sentiments #117 - Wedding/Sophistication



This week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, we are celebrating Sophisticated Weddings...As you can see, I got a little carried away with the challenge and had to put some serious breaks on, so I didn't paper craft our entire house into a grey and white bridal poof!!!


When I think of weddings, white is my first color of choice...but a sophisticated wedding?? Well, you can check all the Brides magazines and online forums to see that grey is the new black! 
I chose to go simple, sweet and sophisticated with this 'invitation' and 'save the date' trio.


Just a hint of silver embossing on the save the date and paper band, which makes for a fresh addition...



I took a strip of Basic Grey and topped it with a piece of White Organza Ribbon on the invitation and RSVP card, it's flat, sleek and mailable, hooray!!


A sweet little addition to the set are these coordinating table number rosettes. They can easily be placed in a vase of flowers, coffee beans, lemons, candy...the possibilities are endless!


I hope you enjoyed my Sophisticated Wedding Suite, we'd love for you to pop by the Hand Stamped Sentiments Blog and see what snazzy creations the ladies have made for you this week!!
Thanks for stopping in...

Dawn these are gorgeous! I love the embossing and the organza ribbon over the gray--perfect. The rosettes are so fun and would be a great addition to the wedding decor. Love what you came up with! ...and I too have become a sucker for gray :)

I am with you guys on being into grey these days. It is so fun to dress up or dress down and funky. The addition of the ribbon over the strip of grey is so sophisticated and the belly band just adds to the level of professionalism. I love, love, love it all! Smiles, Elizabeth
