An Alternative Wedding Card........

Evening all.....another post from me..... 2 days in a row, whoohoo!
 Tonight I want to show you a wedding card I've made for Emma's brother & girlfriend's wedding in a couple of weeks time.   Tom and Laura are both very artistic and I don't think a traditional white card would suit on this occasion.  They love colour, texture and just something 'different' to the norm, as their wedding day will show, no doubt. We aren't going, but I'm so looking forward to seeing all the photos of the day. 
Anyway, here is the card




Guess which colours I chose?
(Haha)






The heart charm is from my jewellery making stash


I've used...... Pan Pastels, Distress Inks, Grunge Dots embossing folder, and a leafy stamp. Spellbinder label die, Marianne heart dies, and Cheery Lynn tiny butterflies. A 'love' charm and loads of Cosmic Shimmer' mica spray.....Oh and some white ribbon, dyed with distress inks






                      What do you think......will they like it??
                                           Do you??


                     Would love you to leave a comment.
                                 Catch you all tomorrow
                                          Barbara xx

  2. Barbara this is fantastic! It's very hard creating something for arty people, as they very often don't like the usual! I don't think there will be any problem with this card, love the colour and texture and that charm is just gorgeous xx
