Happy Saturday and a Wedding Card

I love this time of year, it's wedding season and although I haven't been invited to any this year, I live in hope that a few of our friends might take the plunge lol.

I've been designing a new Wedding Card for my Etsy Store and I used this gorgeous image called "double take" she was drawn by Krista Smith over at Saturated Canary.

A wedding day is such an important day especially for the bride so I wanted to make her more prominent on the card, hence the bridegroom is in silhouette form. I coloured her up with my promarkers and then hand stitched some silver seed beads to the dress. I made the sentiment and added some ribbon and black embellishments to finish it off.

Doesn't she look like the perfect blushing bride.
