Black and white wedding card

Hi Crafty friends,

Here's something you don't see from me, a black and white image not coloured! I thought about colouring their skin but decided it would look better left alone so I just added a bit of sparkle to the bouquet.

The silver rhinestone flourishes are from my company Flourish with a Bling

  1. Lucy this is gorgeous.

  2. I always think that so many wedding cards favour the bride or the romance of the occasion itself but, in this wedding card Lucy, you have redressed the balance and remembered the Groom too ....The strength of the black and the bold designs in your backing paper contrasted against the delicacy of your floaty image and delicate embelishments make this a card for both parties in the new union. An unusual wedding card but very profound.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
