Tony & Stephanie get married!!

Hello my lovelies!! You remember my sister, Dee, right? Well...her "baby" boy (who is 6 ft 4 inches tall) is getting married! Sooo, of course, I wanted to make a card for Dee to give the bride and groom...and that's just what I did! She did have a couple of requests:
  1. This adorable LOTV image called "I do",
  2. Green and blue somewhere on the card,
  3. Rhinestones & pearls in the bouquet (because Stephanie is carrying a bouquet made completely from vintage broaches!), and
  4. A pocket inside for Dee to tuck in a little $$$ for the happy couple!
And...here's what I came up with...

    I used K & Company DPs and cardstock from Stampin' Up - Very Vanilla & Not Quite Navy. Toile and pearls are from my stash. Here's a close-up of this sweet little image...


    The cool metal corners & those gorgeous flowers came from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added white embossing powder to the metal corners and then heat embossed them...after that, I sponged a little Creamy Caramel ink (from SU) on the corners...to give them a vintage look. I made the pretty doily with Very Vanilla cardstock and one of my Marianne's Creatables Dies...oh, and those yummy leaves were made with another of my Marianne's dies.



    Here's a peek at the inside...



    I thought this sentiment was perfect...it's from one of my Stampin' Up stamp sets (sorry...I can't recall the name of the set.). Oh...I nearly forgot...the image was colored with my fave Copics and some Prismacolor pencils to deepen the shading.

    I've decided to enter this little card into the following challenges:

    Challenge #98 at Die Cut Dreams (Flower Power)
    Simon Says Stamp (Use dies and/or punches)


    Sooooo... that's it for me! I hope Tony & Steph like it! Thanks so much for stopping by...and thanks, in advance, for your kind comments!! Until next time, my sweet friends.

    What a stunning keepsake for the bride and groom! It is gorgeous in every way, my friend! I really love that sentiment -- it says it all, doesn't it? Miranda Lambert (country singer) carried a bouquet of brooches. It was AMAZING but heavy, she said. Not one to be thrown, for sure. Now if we could get brides to carry bouquets made of cards!! Hmmm?

    Wowzers! You know I love LOTV and this is one of my favorite images. I so love this that I feel like copying to the last detail:) Your sister had some very serious demands there:))It must have taken you quite a while to put them all together...lol. Still, the result is simply adorable! I bet they were charmed by this cute lil card.
    Beautiful indeed!
