Congrats to the happy couple

Hi and welcome.
There have been a couple of weddings this week for my daughter and son, my son being Best Man for his bestie yesterday. Congrats to Holly and Ben. 
As it always is, the call of  'Mum, I need a card' came but when I went to design it I was unsure as to what to make. Being for my son to give I didn't want it to be too frilly and girly so went with a monochromatic palette, chic and classy so it will appeal to Holly too!

On a white 5 x 7 card I masked and stamped in Altenew's Silver Stone ink, the outline flower and solid leaf stem from Altenew's Beautiful You. 
The die cut 'Congrats' is from an ancient Cuttlebug plate die, cut from white card and inked with matching ink and a bit of clear Wink of Stella.
The sentiment strip cut with an MFT banner die was stamped in the same ink using a HLS sentiment. A few PPP clear sequins complete. Quite a quick card in the end and one I used to make another for my daughter's friend earlier in the week, but more of that later!

Joining in over at:-

Monochrome or Rainbow
I went with monochrome for a classy looking card. It might have flowers on it but I thought this understated style was perfect for my son to give to his best friend on his wedding day.
