DCM Shrink to Fit !!

The dare this week over at DCM is to make a card with only a 5 x 5 cm embellished portion! (less than 2"OMG!!) Thankfully a sentiment was allowed.This is what i came up with....
The black chipboard square is from a Donna Downey kit and is exactly 5 x 5 cms. The smaller square is 47 mm which is kind of thin white chipboard( got them in a pack from Stamp Addicts)
I covered the white piece with' Bikini Pink' Sea Brights ink from Ranger, when this was dry i smoothed a thin layer of glue over the top and then sprinkled on some Glamour Dust from DecoArt(very very fine glitter) The sentiment and 'bride & groom' are rub-ons from Making Memories, the ampersand is also from the Donna Downey kit, and the card base is a standard A6.
It sort of brings back memories for me of the type of cards i used to make when i first embarked on this fantastic hobby of cardmaking!! Sometimes less is more, as they say :)
Thanks for popping in today, see you soon :)
