Wedding Card

It's my birthday today, and how are we celebrating? By going to a wedding! Not what I originally had in mind for the day, but I guess I will never forget their anniversary. There are a couple of blogs that had challenges to make wedding cards or layouts (Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge & Creative Belli Challenge #144), so here's my card for the happy couple. All my supplies used on this card are at least six months old, and some, like the Mocha Opaques, I had forgotten I had, so here's to rooting around in your stash and finding oldies but goodies! One last challenge I'm entering this card in is the Stampin' Royalty Color Challenge. They used SU colors, which I don't have, but I did my best to find the CTMH equivalents.


Here's a close-up of the butterfly. I added a little bit of Diamond Stickles to the edges in honor of this magical occasion, and I left the wings free to give the card more dimension.
