Card: Cherish

The letters on this wedding card are the first initials of the bride (t) and groom (r).  The "cherish" charm was originally copper colored but I changed the color by painting over it with a silver leafing pen and then antiquing it with black acrylic paint.  I'm adding this card to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  The theme is "Wedding or Anniversary."

Cute idea using initials on the front and the bits inside are also a nice touch, I've not seen that done before.
