WEDDING WISHES

Needed a wedding card for the friend for whom I made those 100 invitations and decided to use the Color Throwdown challenge and my new Peony Scrolls from Altenew.  Of course, the blue and green called to me immediately!!


I used my Zig watercolor brushes to color the flowers and leaves after embossing with Ranger liquid platinum.  The background papers are HA wet cement and PTI soft stone.  I used a Spellbinders circle to make the cut in the center, die cut PTI shaker shapes:circle and popped it up with another die cut in fun foam.  The sentiment is also from PTI.  Added the clear gems (from HA but no longer available) and done.

Since the couple didn't want any gifts quite a few of us have gone together and are making a nice donation to Matt Talbot kitchen in their name - MTK has been feeding the hungry of Lincoln for many years and also has multiple other outreach programs for the needy.  The inside of the card is plain so all our names can be added.

Thanks for visiting today and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty
