Wedding Card with Tattered Flowers

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.

I have a non-traditional wedding card to show today that I created for my sister and new brother-in-law who just exchanged vows this weekend in an intimate ceremony.    They like the Caribbean Sea and spending time down south (in warm climate) so I decided to use favourite colours that remind me of tropical places.


The background is Distress Inks along with stenciling using inks, paint and a Tim Holtz heart stencil.   The die cut heart is from Heartfelt Creations and the heart sprays from Impression Obsession.  The Tattered flowers are from Tim Holtz as well.   The back words are from the Chapel Road - Synonyms stamp set.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley

This is absolutely gorgeous Shirley and I adore the stencilled hearts and words in the background and those more clearly shown behind the beautiful die cut heart, also the heart sprays and delightful TH Tattered Flowers with the touch of gold glitter. Super colours too. x

Congratulations to your sister and BIL. I'm sure they were tickled with this gorgeous card. The stenciling of the hearts adds a nice touch. Love how you have a heart with a description of love inside. Have a great week Shirley.

A stunning and original Shirley creation to celebrate the newlyweds special day. SO beautiful and romantic and in my favorite colors too.
Wishing you and yours a lovely weekend.
It's going to be super hot and humid here again, so I'll be staying indoors mostly.
