It Never Ends!






The making of wedding cards that is!  Man o man I have had a lot to make this summer!  After today's card I have one engagement card and one more wedding card and then I think I will be done for a bit.  Although truth be told, they are some of my favorite types of cards to make because they can be so ornate and over the top.  This particular card is made for two people who are very, very close to me and have waited 35 years for the right to be married.  I wanted an elegant card that uses some of the traditional elements of wedding cards such as metallics, bling or ribbons but also had a distinctly masculine edge to it hence the black and silver color scheme.  I am so happy with how this card turned out!  I included two shots of the inside of the card....this, for some reason, was a really difficult color combo to photograph!  I am entering this card into Our Creative Corner's Challenge entitled "Words, Words, Words".  Although the words that I have at the heart of my card aren't a sentiment per se they certainly are words that speak volumes.  They truly do "tell a story" as much as any other type of inspirational quote!





Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are heading into a great weekend.  Can you believe the summer is nearly over?  I can't......in Wisconsin it was so short this year!

Be well,
Sheila

What a super-elegant wedding card - the black and white is so chic, and all those detailed die-cuts make a fabulous frame for the Mr & Mr. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.
