Before Christmas I was asked to make a renewal of vows card for a couple who have been married for over 40 years. David is taking Julie to Antigua in March to renew their vows and he was very specific in what he wanted on the card............ not to make my life difficult you understand!!!! lol
Anyway he wanted joining of hands, sentimental/religious, blues/greens and light/sunny representing Antigua!!!!! What a challenge.
Must admit it took me quite a while of thinking how I was going to plan this card as it obviously had to be a bit "special" and then once I had started it again took me a while to be satisfied with what I had done....... luckily I don't charge for my time!
I began with an image of sky, beach and water on an 8x8" card. As it was too prominent I added a sheet of velum on which I had embossed the bottom section. Across this I placed some very pretty lace. I used nesties to frame the photo of joined hands and then went a bit mad with the flowers but I wanted them to look like a bridal bouquet. I added gems around the frame, a white ribbon with a rhinestone buckle and some die cut hearts with their initials. Lastly I added a dragonfly which had been coloured with alcohol inks and a couple of die cut corners.
Thanks for stopping by.
