A Wedding redo


 Hi Lovelies,

Are you sick of my wedding cards yet?  Ok so today I showed my friend the cards I made & she really liked them but loved the colour of this card above.  I have always thought that this card needed to be redone.  It was one of my earlier cards & I've struggled with the how to's of changing it.  Between the two of us we came up with the design below.
It looks so much better now, don't you think?  I incorporated the papers from the other cards into this one.  I think because the background paper is so busy that the strips of neutrals help to balance it out.  I think the simple bow, ribbon rose & the two pins are just the right amount of embellishments as well.

Well my youngest is not having her afternoon nap, plus Emsy is home from school.  So I had better go do the mum thing.  Maybe I can squeeze in some crafting time tonight?

Happy crafting everyone
