M is for Monogram

The challenge today at 365 cards was to use a monogram. I made a wedding card for Ashley and Bryce who will be married in less than a month now. I've been helping out A LOT with this wedding, so I'm happy it's almost here. It will be great to see everything come to fruition. I think this card is still missing a little something, but I want it to be simple, and I like that it looks vintage since that is a major theme of the wedding.
Here's the back:
The shape is lily bee French Couture die cut.
Jenny Bowlin Chipboard buttons
Marcella K sticker letters for monogram
Vellum stickers on back and front K & Company.
Thread and ribbon is from my stash.

This one is for Card-A-Licious ~ Pink, Green and Orange Friendship card
I used my Tim Holtz mask and blended pink ink all over white card stock. Then I used some orange scraps I had to make the frame. Outlined with my black flair marker and slapped on the Spoil Yourself stamp from Craft Affair. Then the inside (below) is a Inkadinkado set. I stamped both in distress ink peeled paint. I don't know why, but neither stamp photographed well.

That's it for me. Now I need to clean up around here, so maybe the hubs and I can shake this funk we've been in!

Hope you and hubs have a good day today! Your cards are great! I don't know that you'd want to add anything to the first one, as it really needs to stay as clean and simple as it is already.... I think it's pretty much perfect!
