Wedding Bouquet in Gold and Cream



A friend of mine asked if I could make a special wedding card for her brother's wedding.  I was inspired by the invitation (below) to go with a cream and gold theme.  The gift she has for him is square so I was keen to make the card square also.  Postage was definitely not an issue and she quite liked the idea of some dimension.  I found some white resin flowers in a local hobby shop, and covered them with various cream coloured and gold alcohol inks, and surrounded them with a few golden leaves to complete the bouquet.

This is the first time I've made a card which has so much dimension.  Even though it wasn't going to be posted, I thought it would be wise to build up a raised frame and provide a little protection for the flowers.  Happily, it still fitted into a standard (square) envelope.


Supplies : Lemonade, Butterscotch, Sandal, Gold Adirondack Alcohol Inks
Dies : Yvonne Springtastic Flowers (leaves), Spellbinder Labels 14, Spellbinders Label 4, Spellbinders Adorning Squares


I'm entering my card in the following challenges

Timeout Challenge 86 - obviously I'm not twisting


Celebrations with the Optional Twist of One Layer Cards

Fusion Card Challenge -  I was inspired by the Sketch (Frame and 3 flowers though I centred my bouquet) and the foliage surrounding the flowers in the jars.


The Challenge #88 - which has a new challenge of keywords - flowers and square being among them.



Thanks for stopping by, especially if you take the time to leave a comment.  They are always appreciated and I will try and return the favour when my life gets a little more normal 😊

Last Mojo


Some sad news this week with the announcement that this is the final Mojo Monday sketch.  I never play as often as I want to but they are my go-to place for a sketch when my mojo is in need of a good prod - which it definitely has recently.


It's also a contest challenge so there's Verve Stamp Sets up for grabs - Yay!!!

I've framed my sentiment using WMS Stitched Rectangles and WMS Scalloped Rectangles so I'm entering my card in the Cuttlebug Mania Challenge Frame It




CAS-ual Fridays have a fun challenge this week - to use those Pattern Papers.  I'm on a mission to do just that and managed to use 3 patterned papers on my design.
