Wedding season

It's wedding season and I recently had a friend ask me to make her five wedding cards.  Lucky for me they could all be the same design, just different colours!  I pulled out Fifth Avenue Floral from SU - I absolutely love this set and it's one of the few I kept when I 'retired' from SU :)

The layout is cased from a card on SCS - you can see "houstonarmywife's" beautiful card here.  I changed it a bit and made up 5 in various shades of pink and purple.  I embossed the rose with white embossing powder (gosh, haven't pulled that out in a while) and coloured it with my aqua painter and reinkers.  The embossing folder is Textile Texture and I added 3 leaves from MFT Royal Leaves Die-namic behind the rose which I popped up.  I used part of a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Anniversaries, some white ribbon and added 3 little pearls.  I really like all the texture on this card - from the embossing folder to the leaves to the raised rose and I finished it off with a light spray of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Marshmallow. 

Happy Wedding Day to all five brides!

Oooh I love this design! And don't laugh but I really love your bow. No matter how many times I make bows they always come out different even though I want them to come out like this! Hmpf! You talented dog.
