Wedding Couple

Hello bloggers.

Hope you are all well and managing to fit in some crafty time. As I mentioned on my last post, my mojo disappeared and I was desperate to get it back. Well, my mojo came back but it would not let me create the wedding card I needed to do. The wedding colours were Cadbury purple, cream and gold and try as I might I could not create something that I was happy with. I wasn't asked to use those colours, that was my idea - one of my bad ideas!!! Anyhow I got up yesterday and instead of beating myself up about it, set out to make a wedding card more suited to my style. 

I used LOTV's Wedding Couple.

I coloured the bride with Pro and Flexi markers and added Diamond Sparkles to the dress and flowers and coloured the groom with Faber Castell, Polychromo pencils. 

The flowers, metal embellishment and hat pin are from WOC. The Sentiment stamps are from Whimsy Stamps. The butterfly is a Memory Box Die. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges
Papertake Weekly - Sketch 54
Everybody Art Challenge - Anything goes

Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you all again soon. Take care.

Hi Sharon, this is just adorable. Love it. I've lost count of how many times my cards turn out differently to the idea in my head when I start.
This is just so super perfect, I love that LOTV image and your detail is wonderful. I am sure they will treasure it.
Hugs Sue W.
