Wedding Wishes for my Sister

I've had this card made for so long, but have waited to post this just in case my sister decides to check out what I've been doing....

You may remember the engagement card and Wedding Album I made for my sister back in November. Thankfully this card didn't take me as long to figure out!

The photo really does not do this card justice - I LOVE it!!! My dress was Sage Shadow, and so was Luana's sash, and the other girls dresses were Close to Cocoa, with silver shoes and pink proteas in our bouquets. Cristy also used Very Vanilla as the neutral for her invites, so I really wanted to incorporate all these colours.

I made a matchbook card (I think that's what it's called) for something a little different. I used the scallop edge punch for the fold up flap and layered a bit of Pretty in Pink under the Close to Cocoa. I stamped the branch from Always (Spring Mini - not available at the moment but I'm hoping it's going to appear in the new catalogue) across the diagonal and then the gorgeous heart in Sage Shadow and silver embossed one on Very Vanilla. I layered these on a strip of Enchante DSP (retired) and finished with some silver cord (retired).

I will post some photos soon!
