During the weekend I have been working on a very special card for a friend at work to give to her, son and Daughter-in-law to be, next week they will be getting married and I was honoured to be asked to make the wedding card.
I was asked for a Red, black and cream card, and I know that the bride is planning on having red roses in her bouquet, so I started off with my favourite retired set A rose is a rose, of course you can't make a wedding card with out another retired set I can't seem to let go of, Mr & Mrs.
I found the inspiration for the layout on a sketch challenge called Freshly Made Sketches, a challenge that I've been meaning to enter for a long time, but never got around to
As you can see the sketch is meant to be a side opening DL card, but I was asked for an 8"x8" card, I hope the ladies don't mind that I've adapted it for my needs.
As I was asked to use red in the card, I choose the gorgeously deep Cherry Cobbler which fits perfectly with the PPA colour challenge
Paper Players challenge which this week is to use flowers on your card, perfect!
So without further a do ( or should that be I DO) here is the card
As you can see I've mixed my retired products with current ones, I love the Mocha Morning DSP, the texture is so great, and gives that luxurious feel, along with Black satin ribbon.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, xx
