Since the bride's colors are a deep purple with hints of grey/black, I decided to make the card for the couple in the same hues. A very classic design, simple and straightforward. The stencil is from Penny Black and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Everyday Greetings set. Don't you just love that sentiment? Hard to tell, but I did the gradient effect here and made the bottom part of the stencil darker than the top. I always go from darkest at the bottom to most delicate going upward.
