Wedding Card - 2nd Time Around

Hi everybody!

When I make a wedding card for someone, for some reason I immediately think pink colors.  I made a sweet girl named Amanda that works in my Neurologist office in St. Louis a wedding card in pinks.  Well guess what?  It never made it!!  I mailed it in a brown bubble envelope with more than enough postage and still not there after 3 weeks.  Well you can imagine how that made me feel  !!?*!#!.  I had appointment there end of October so I had to make her another one, I mean, I couldn't just say, it still didn't make it?  So I wanted to hand deliver it.

I've made this card before in pinks using this Elisabeth Bell image.  I think it is so cute for a young, first time married couple, don't you?  Well, I asked another lady in the office what her wedding colors were and she said Tiffany Blue and Silver.  Boy, was I way off!  LOL!  So here's the card I made for her.  Wouldn't you know it, my BG10 marker was almost dry.  I squeezed every drop out using my copic colorless blender fluid.  You know what I mean if you use copics.  I use this one all the time because I trace around edges of image a lot in addition to coloring.

The inside sentiment is from Close To My Heart.  I use it all the time because of it's appropriateness.  I put a little tulle on her veil, sparkled it up with some stickles and Sakura pen.

So, guess what??  The day of my appointment when I gave her the card, she told me it had arrived the day before.  LOL!!!!  You know what?  I'm fine with that because at least she did eventually get it and it's not on the ground somewhere, you know?  She also believes I really did make her a card 3 weeks earlier when I told her I did. :)

Thanks for stopping by and come by tomorrow!
