Wedding Wishes

Hello and welcome back!  Well, here we are in October and the weather has been beautiful, and the leaves swiftly turning color...and falling on the lawn!  The Paper Players have a super sketch for their challenge this week, and I used it to make a wedding card for one of my friends at work who is flying off to Fiji to get married next week.  Pretty romantic, eh?

I just picked up the lovely stamp set, Remarkable You, as a Weekly Deal and thought it would be perfect for this card.  I chose the Calla Lily image and used retired Blendability markers to  color it.

After coloring the flowers with Cherry Cobbler, I had to decide the other card components.  It took forever, because I really wanted it to be a bit fancy and sophisticated.  I finally ended up with the white and gold, with a hint of the red with the ribbon.

Thanks for your visit today!  I hope you are able to take time and visit The Paper Players with the link above and enjoy all the lovely inspiration!
