2nd attempt at Keesh's Challenge

I've cleaned the bathroom, vacuumed & mopped the floors so thought I deserved a bit more stamping fun. I had another play with Keesh's challenge (see post below for 1st attempt and sketch).
I decided to do a wedding card this time. I love the damask image from the 'Friends 24-7' set. I have never inked the bird image from this set as I'm not much into birds, but everyone else makes it look so good (case in point, see Keesh and Kirsty's entries for this same challenge).

Anyway, I used DSP from the pretty 'Bella Blue' range and Kraft, Very Vanilla and Not Quite Navy (NQN) cardstock (CS). I inked the damask in NQN and stamped it onto the VV CS. I added a half pearl from the pretties kit and layered it onto NQN CS. I used my Scalloped Square punch for the side pieces. I used NQN brads but I wish I'd left them off. The sentiment is from 'Occasional Greetings' and I used a smidge of Kraft taffeta ribbon for the knot.
I smudged bit of NQN (accidently) on the top of the card so I tried (not real successfully, I fear) to cover it up by sponging a bit more ink along the card edges.
Wouldn't mind re-creating this card, leaving off smudging & brads ;-)

That's all for now. have a great day,
Love Fi xox
