To the Bride & Groom
The daughter of a very good friend of mine is getting married at the end of this month, so I needed to make a wedding card to give to here. I have been thinking about it for a few weeks now but hadn't gotten around to actually making it; the only thing I had decided on was that I wanted to use one of my cuttlebug embossing folders (they make a card look soooo elegant), and I wanted it to be blue and silver as that is the colors they have chosen for the wedding. The silver card I had wasn't the right silver for this so I had to go with 2 colors of blue and then adding the silver to the white card and also in the brads and ribbon. After making my other 2 cards using this weeks sketch challenge on SCS, I knew I had to make the wedding card using that sketch as it lends itself to elegance. I just love this image of the bride & groom, I have had this one for years and it was fun to get it out and play again with it.
