...one. This weekend will bring about a widerange of emotions and "life events." We have a wedding, a funeral and a 60th birthday party to attend for a very dear friend. Today is the wedding...tonight the birthday and tomorrow the wake followed by the funeral on Monday. Lot's of emotion at all....it is odd how this weekend turned out this way. But, back to the card. This wedding that we are attending will be held in a beautiful park. It is a picnic wedding. Very laid back. The invites were beautiful but very untraditional in that they were, bright, colorful and featured large, bold sunflowers. So, I went with an untraditional wedding card.....featuring some images that I thought we would see around us at their wedding site. So here is my card and I hope you likey....and I hope Lisa and Brian do too!
I used colored pencils and stickles on the images and then popped up the butterfly with a second colored image. The way I like to pop up butterflies is to put glossy accents down the middle of the first butterfly and adhere just the middle of the second butterfly. Then I cover the second butterfly with glossy accents or stickles and when it dries the butterfly wings naturally lift and curl. This particular butterfly I covered with Stickles Diamond and also put them around the flowers too. Here is a close up of the wings in action.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a good weekend and I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment.
