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 😊
