A wedding card


I really need a card for a friends wedding soon. I used today's Everybody Art Challenge sketch to work on this card. I am not sure if this is the card I will be using, I might play around making a few more to choose from. When I looked at today's sketch this stamp set immediatly came to mind.
I stamped it on SU's shimmery white card stock, and colored with alcohol markers. I added a little darker tone with my SU pretty in pink and mellow moss markers. The birds were cut out. I stamped the retired SU background stamp "French script on the piece of pink piroutte cardstock and added a ribbon to it. The bow was attached with glue dots. To finish off this card I added a scallop edge border and the sentiment which I punched out with SU's large oval punch and adhered to the same size oval in mellow moss.
These are the colors the wedding invitation had with roses, so I thought it would be nice to have a "matching" card. I thought about cutting the flower out and adhering it with dimensionals, but really wanted to go for a simpler look. Maybe this sketch is not right for the wedding card I am wanting. Thanks for looking.
Stamps: Eastern Influences, Happy Harmony, French Script (all SU)
Paper: mellow moss, shimmery white, pink piroutte
Ink: memento black, mellow moss, pretty in pink
Accessories: Prisma color markers, copic markers, SU markers, wide organdy ribbon (SU retired), scallop edge punch, large oval punch (both SU)
