The Bridal Season Has Begun

Can you believe we are already in the middle of March? Which means the beginning of the "Bridal Season" here in our county. The bridal shows began this coming weekend and will go through the end of April. So I thought why not make a wedding card or two? I have always loved weddings and had such joy in making the preparations for both of our daughters when they were getting married. I recall one card my daughter had received that had been hand painted by one of her co-workers for their wedding and to this day it hangs in a frame in their home. With my DH taking so many pictures around our yard of the flowers, bugs, and trees I can't help but put these beautiful pictures on a card. As you can tell from the last few posts, I used a mixture of pictures and stamps. This is another one with the white rose that is in our yard and is just breathtaking on the bush. He captured the early evening lighting on it as the sun was going down. What a perfect card for a couple who is getting married to say "How Do I Love Thee" and with the white representing the purity of their love for each other. This was a three step card: Used Watercolor paper 140 lb weight as the backing, picture, then cut the acetate the width and length plus 1/2 " to fold over and attach to the back of it and then stamp the Flourishes Lace Heart Sentiment with SU White Craft Ink. Added pearls to the opposite corner ends and finish off with a light organdy and satin ribbon. This card has turned out so well, that as I was posting this, the neighbor stopped by with fresh blueberries from her garden and insisted she have this card for her nephew's wedding this weekend. I just looked at her and said uhmm okay. Let me take a picture of this first. I was going not going to charge her for it, but before I could say that she handed me a $5.00 bill and said here, and I won't take no for an answer. LOL!!!
