Best Wishes

I love weddings. I love them, big or small. I love them, elegant or crazy fun. I love them even more when I don't have to plan them or be a part of them! So when I recently heard the fabulous news of my friend's nuptials, I was shocked, then excited that I didn't have to be a part of the wedding and then just plain happy for the two newlyweds. Yes, I'm horrible... but being a bridesmaid is an honor I'll happily do without.

So I have a card ready to send her. I'm a little slow in sending it to her as well, that's me. I haven't actually mailed this card out yet as I'm on my way home today from a business trip. But I hope the little gift on the inside will make up for my tardiness.

Since I didn't have a wedding color palette to work with, I opted to go with a Tiffany's inspired color palette. At worst case, it's definitely a neutral wedding color motif. I stamped the flowers from Big Blooms - Chrysanthemums. I wanted to create a "link" between the white and aqua color so I stamped 1/2 the flower in aqua on the white and 1/2 the flower in white on the aqua. I think it's a fun effect but maybe it's just me. :) The sentiment comes from Fancy Phrases.

In case she's reading this, congrats on joining the Mrs. club! ;-) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I love the effect between the two! It's classy and elegant! Gorgeous card! I am the same way, always late with my cards! It's ironic, being a card maker, and always late with the cards! I say everytime, 'this time it will be early'. Well, you know how that goes! Safe travels home, my friend!
