Is She a Princess?

That is what I heard several kids in the apple orchard asking their parents as my friend made her entrance on horseback to meet her groom on their wedding day.  There was wonder in their voices and rightly so.  It was a majestic sight!  And for the record, the answer to that question would be "Yes.  Yes, she is."

These are my friends Julie and Phil..  Theirs was the amazing wedding that I've been talking about for the past month.  And this is the card I made for their special day.


See the resemblance? :-)


Since they are a fun loving and unique couple I decided it would be appropriate to give them a non-conventional card.  Besides, finding a bald groom image is no easy feat!  So I paired two Simply B Stamps images for my creation.  This is Betty Addams and Miller Addams from the Teen Scene collection.  Betty is from last year's Halloween release; Miller from this year's.  Both are colored with Copics and fussy cut.  To hide the bottle of poison Miller is holding, I simply placed his hand behind Betty's back as though he had his arm around her.  Clever, right?  The rest is fairly simple.  I based my card on the current Deconstructed Sketch (#70).  I thought the tiered element was perfect as it reminded me of a wedding cake.  I embossed those layers for some texture.  I used a Marta Stewart border punch at the bottom, but my images almost obscure it entirely.  Papers are Everyday Tango from My Mind's Eye.  Add organdy ribbon, a bling flourish, and some metal corners and I was done.  Good thing too since I had to rush to get ready, drop my son off with my parents, and race to the ceremony!  I made it.  Barely.  And only because the ceremony didn't start on time, but, hey, I'll take it!  I'm so glad I didn't miss it because it was beautiful and fun, just like the two people whose love it celebrated!  From the horseback entrance to the hula hoop "intermission" to their exit to The Waitresses "I Know What Boys Like", I can't think of a better way for them to start their lives together!





Congrats again to Julie and Phil!  I'm wishing them every happiness as they begin this new adventure together!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a fabulous week!
