Wedding Card

So here is a recent commissioned make and I know I shouldn't really say this but I do just love it!!  I think it is the lovely zingy green card that makes this although it's not a colour that I'd normally have thought to use for a wedding card.  My friend had got me a couple of packs of this card from a supplies warehouse that she is able to go to and I can see that it will be used very often.  My love affair with LOTV continues of course.

Card size is 8 inch square and the embossing had to be done in two goes. It's fairly easy to line up the hearts folder but the birds & swirls won't match up so well, hence the flower treatment in the centre.

This is the first of two cards (second one will be blogged soon) and both are going out to Australia. LOL, I'm going global!!
