Baja Bride


I needed a wedding card for a friend's son that is getting married next week and thought this would fit the bill as their colors are blue and white. There are so many different shades of blue but on this card I used Baja Breeze. Love that color and so glad to see it again in the new SU catalog. I used the Square Lattice embossing folder for the background. The image and sentiment are from Blissful Bride by SU. I used Iridescent Ice on the dress - although you can't really see it in the photograph. I think the organza ribbon and pearls give it the "bridal" touch.

This is for Always Playing With Paper challenge - the layout. Check out this site and see some awesome cards by the DT - and players.

Thanks for stopping by.............

I always struggle with wedding cards. This is a true inspiration for me. All the elements come together so well. Love the subtle components, the embossing, the organza, the pearls that softly say wedding. (My wedding cards tend to scream WEDDING in a very loud 'out-door' voice - which is what I REALLY don't like) This card is very lovely. Thanks again for the inspiration. I may try another wedding card and perhaps not run in fear to the nearest Hallmark store every time I get an invite...
