For the Happy Couple!

I struggled a little with this wedding card. I could just redo one of my other cards, the people I need to make these cards for don't know each other. But somehow it just doesn't seem right. I just feel that I need to make an original card for each wedding.

I like the colors I used, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Brushed Silver. I think it is that piece of the brushed silver at the bottom of the card that is messing the balance of the card out. It's too late to do anything about it but I think that is the culprit!!!

I know, I'm way too critical of my work but when I stepped back and took a look at the finished card I just wasn't into the half circle at the bottom. I should turn this layout into SplitCoastStampers for their Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I would LOVE to see what someone else does with this layout.

I did color the couple in a bit too. I colored the flowers in with Pretty in Pink. The bride's hair is Yoyo Yellow. The grooms hair is Close to Cocoa. The bow tie was colored in with black. I did use a glitter pen and drew the lines on the veil. You can see in the photo it has a bit of a shimmer.

The stamps used here are from the Stampin' Up! "To Have and to Hold" set. I've used it quite often. It's such a sweet and yet elegant set!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I like it - maybe the brushed silver could have been cuttlebugged or something? I took my techniques book to my workshop this weekend and boy were you ever a hero to everyone! They loved it and were seriously "shopping" it for ideas for our next workshop. Thanks again. ~chris

I like it Wanda, the silver is very pretty at the bottom in your half circle.

I studied it for a couple of minutes and actually began to see the half circle as a dance floor...envisioning their coming out together for their first dance!!!
