A Wedding Card

Hearts are in demand for anniversaries, weddings and St Valentine's Day just at the moment. Here is the wedding card I made yesterday morning after cogitating about the right colour scheme for a day or so beforehand. As the bride was wearing pink, and the groom pink and burgundy with a gray suit (had my ear to the ground for those details), pink had to be the theme.

I used the Memory Box hearts again, the solid one in silver and the filigree in deep pink which matches the B & G.  The bow-maker was handy for the white bow, and the whole assembly was mounted on pale pink handmade paper bordered on three sides with Krylon silver leaf pen. It was then matted with my favourite Pearla metallic card.

It needed a touch of something. I punched some tiny flowers to relieve the leaf in the handmade paper then... what?  Thank goodness for a small bling stash in which I found some tiny clear and dark pink crystals for the tiny flowers and a few on the filigree heart. They're a bit hard to see in the photo.

Happy days,

Good Morning from cold wet Liverpool England! Popped over for the mere thought of sunshine to find your lovely card. What a great idea to use the die cit flowers over the heart. Really effective.
Kung Hey Fat CHoy... lots of celebrations going on this week in our Chinatown.
Love Jo x
