For the Bride and Groom/Happy Wedding Day Card

It amazes me how a color I normally do not like can look so good on a completed card!  Blue is not one of my fav's.  I made this card for a good friend who is getting married next week.  Her new hubby to be doesn't seem the type to like a girly girl card so  that's why I used  the color blue as the main color.  I know, I just couldn't help blinging it up just a  The matching envelope  may not be to his taste but the card should pass.  I am hoping they will both like it.  My DH still say's I can't ask for it back if they don't...ROFL  The cuter my cards turn out the harder it is to actually give them away...and OMGosh I gotta let them go...  Who would have thought that I would come to appreciate the color blue.  Anyway's I entered this card into the following challenges:


Everything I used I had in my stash.  It think my DP stash is going to last forever!  I may  have to start decorating all my envelopes just to use it up faster...then I can buy lot's of new stuff..yeah!  Here's what I used to create my card:
  • Cuttlebug and  Valentine embossing  folder
  • Greeting Farm Digi Stamps ( Aren't they soo cute!)
  • SU Happy Wedding Day stamp
  • For the Bride & Groom stamp/yard sale find!
  • Copic's and Sakura Gel Pens
  • Martha Stewart Heart Corner Punch
  • Blue brad
  • 2 bling gem butterflies and various color bling gem flowers/all from dollar store
  • Marvy Scallop punch to make multi-layered flower on envelope
  • Neverending DPaper
  • Blue & yellow cardstock
  • Envelope another yard sale find
  • Ink
Thank's for looking, comment's are greatly appreciated.  Can't believe it's been over a year since I have gone to a yard sale.  Have a great week!
