Omg 2 cards!!

Yep that really happened - 2 cards in one night!  This one is a catch up wedding card.  I was so busy with wedding prep (being a bridesmaid) and then we ran out of ink - that I didn't get this card made in time for the wedding of the year!  It was truly the most beautiful and emotional wedding I've ever been a part of.

So I knew I had to make an equally special card.  I started with craft cardstock - this was what all the stationary was created on.  Then I used pretty pastels as the theme of the wedding was Shabby Chic.  I added some glittery elements and I also added some pearl effects.  The image was bought from Kenny K Downloads, and then coloured with my Copics.  The bouquet I had fun with.  I created a tiny version of the bride's real bouquet - right down to the twine wrapped around the stems and the tiny little photo of her dear Uncle (who had passed earlier).  I also added a "knot" cause they "tied the knot" and two heart pins that come together with that knot.

The bride in the image is holding a bouquet above her head, so this is where I hot glued the new 3D version.  I also reprinted her hand to add, but I had to enlarge it slightly so it looked okay with the flowers.  I'm so happy with how it turned out.  I glossed up the teeth, fingernails, and shoes and added bling to the veil, tiara and earrings.
