Happy Wedding Day

Today's card is one that I've been thinking about for a couple of weeks.  I've always loved the white cards with just a touch of color on them, and I thought it would be a great idea to use for a wedding card for my nephew and his bride to be.  As I was looking around at different sketch challenges I found one that I thought would go great with what's been going through my mind...The Paper Players Challenge # 35.  Thank you, ladies, for your idea and your challenges.  This is the first one I am doing with the Paper Players. :)


I wanted the color I used to coordinate with their wedding colors, however I knew we did not have the color of ink I needed.  I ended up sponging Pacific Point around all the edges and then going over it with Wild Wasabi.  It was too green when I did that, so I carefully sponged back over it again with Pacific Point until the color matched the invitation.  Yes! I got it to match perfectly! 


I got the idea for scoring the flower petals from this video here.  I'm not sure what her name its, but she makes beautiful flowers!  Thank you for the idea!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
