Wedding Card

My nephew is getting married this weekend, so I made this card. His fiancee's colors are Certainly Celery and brown (I picked Soft Suede). I used the Paper Lace cartridge to cut the brown and green layers at 4.8". The card itself measures 5.25" square and is made of Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory. I put a few drops of champagne shimmer paint (SU) in a mini mister and added rubbing alcohol to make my own shimmer spray--it's very sparkly IRL.
I stamped this image from the new SU set Four Frames in Soft Suede and colored the leaves with a Certainly Celery marker, and used a blender pen dipped in the shimmer paint to color the roses. The sent. is from PTI's Mixed Messages (the original, not the Mega). I sponged shimmer paint on the brown rose (Mike's) and attached it to the SU crocheted lace.
I also made the envelope using the MS scoring board I bought with a 50% off coupon at Mike's last Sunday. It worked like a charm! I hope they like this card. I got them some of their china for their wedding present. Can't wait to see everyone. Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter everyone. Thanks for stopping by!
