Wedding Bliss

Good morning everyone! What a beautiful day it was here yesterday. The weather was cool, there was a breeze, and low humidity. It was just gorgeous and I spent a fair amount of my day outdoors. The cooler weather sure has Riley in a good mood and full of energy. She's hard to wear down!

Today I have a wedding card to show you. My niece is getting married in September and one of my cousins asked if I'd make a card for them.

(click to enlarge)

I kept it all pretty simple. The image I used is called Wedding Bliss. I added glitter to the bodice of the wedding dress and on the dress trim. A thin iridescent thread is wrapped around the outer edges of the main image panel. The words are computer generated and I left the inside blank for my cousin to write her own wishes.

Today we have grocery shopping to do, and I want to make a card for Stef's color challenge before too much more time goes by! I hope you find time to play too.

Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

Oh Holly, this is exquisite! The detail adds the perfect touch. I'm sure this will be a treasured keepsake!

I'm with Riley.... this weather gives me that extra boost of energy too! I weeded and cleaned out my flower beds yesterday and still have 2 more to do. Ohhh what a mess! I'm hoping WallyWorld has restocked their ink because my printer is bone dry. If they have, I'll be able to play along with Stef too! :) I love the colors she chose and know just the image I want to use. Crossing fingers here!!! ;)
