Happy Wedding Day!

Hello!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of some very good friends. They had the ceremony at their beautiful home in Mapleton, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, with a view right out to the ocean. They managed to obtain special dispensation from the church to have their priest perform a full catholic mass at their home. It was beautiful. This is the view from their deck, in real life the view is about 300 degrees of gorgeous countryside.

So that is the prelude to these two cards. I made two cards for my husband to choose from (these friends were his first). They used the same design, just a couple of different colour schemes. For the layout I CASEd Debby Hughes (I just love her CAS style).

One card I made using The Play Date Cafe Challenge #152
Coincidentally, the image for the colour scheme was wedding themed. :-)
Stamps and dies are PTI Pretty Peonies. Colours are SU! Basic Black and Perfect Plum. Black ink is Memento Tuxedo Black.

The other card, I made using ColourQ #157
I used PTI Pretty Peonies stamps and dies. SU! Eastern Blooms. Colours are SU! Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Basic Black, Memento Grey Flannel, PTI Berry Sorbet. I also embossed the pink panel with PTI Linen.

Thanks for coming by to look at my cards!
