Handfasted


It's official: I have a new sister-in-law!  I am so happy for my brother and his new bride!  It was a beautiful and unique wedding, and I was thrilled to be such a special part of it!  Their ceremony was a handfasting, and I was the officiant (this means I solemnized their marriage).  This is the wedding card I made for them.  I'm not even sure if they will have opened it yet when this posts, but I used this gorgeous sketch from Creative Stamp Friends (#77) and I wanted to be able to enter the challenge.  

Here is the happy couple with my son, Kayne, who was their ring bearer.  The wedding was Fantasy/SciFi themed and costumes were encouraged.  When I asked him what he wanted to dress as he kept saying "cowboy".  We decided it was best to let him be what he wanted to be because after all Cowboys and Aliens is totally SciFi! 


I thought that this bride and groom image of Eric and Christina from All That Scraps looked like them so I bought the digi for their card.  I'm so glad that All That Scraps took over carrying the Tickled Pink Stamps line!  These images are so quirky and fun!  I used my Copics to color it and cut it out using the Romantic Rectangles Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  This sketch was a busy one, but I loved it for that very reason!  I added die cut corners, lace, flowers, a rhinestone flourish, rings, a piece of filmstrip, and the Mr. and Mrs. sentiment stamped on a Fancy Tags die (also from Spellbinders). Bride Christina has Stickles on her veil.  Papers are My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing - Bluebell.


  
What a whirlwind the last couple of days have been! It's a long weekend here in the US, and I plan on relaxing for the next two days!  And I think the relaxing needs to start now!  I will not have a new Corrosive Challenge project for you unfortunately but a new challenge does start in a few hours.  Pllease pop over to see what the theme is and view the eye candy the team has created!

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, RV10, RV19, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, BG10, BG72, YG11, YG95, E23, E27, E31, E79).

Thanks for visiting!
