Ombre Wedding

Hey there....

While hunting for some fun challenges to enter, I ran across the Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge that wants something that makes you think of summer. Besides Lemonade, June always makes me think about June brides.
Though I probably would have used a color besides green for my ombre wedding card, the good people at Sparkle and Shine Challenge have a photo inspiration and their wedding cake is green, so I just went with it.


This card also qualifies at the Virginia's View Challenge with the ombre background.

After I was finished putting the card together, I decided I quite like it.

That wonderful background weave is a new folder by We R Memory Keepers.
eBrushed the background with Copic markers
A die cut doily, a little stamping, some thread and sequins finished the wedding card.
I tend to give more elegant cards for weddings, but for a fun beach wedding, this would be perfect!

Stunning card. I think any couple would be happy to receive this card, regardless of the venue. ^_^ That's something you could do over and over again, in the bride's colors too. Thanks so much for sharing.
