Orange & Creme Wedding Card

My best friend, Steph is going to a wedding this weekend; and the colors for the wedding are Orange and Creme. She asked me to make a card that would go with the wedding colors, and I was thrilled to oblige. Our [original] wedding colors, incase you don't know were also Orange and Brown; but Orange was sort of sidelined when I stumbled upon the girls attire, and boys attire and changed my mind a week or two before the wedding. :-) Our colors ended up being Purple and Green.

Anywhoo, the background paper I used for this card was actually the inside of one of our wedding invitation envelopes, I just cut to size (since our invites were 6X6 I had plenty to work with).

The orange is from PTI-- Cream is from my stash, and the little prima flowers were from last years CK Scrapbooking Convention (which I AM also going to tomorrow!!).

I popped up the cake for some dimension, and I know you can't tell (becuase that was the goal) but I put a piece of cream cardstock under the satin ribbon since you could see the pattern through it.

I also chose to line this card (which I don't do very often) since it is for a wedding, I wanted to make sure the writing inside could be easily read.

I am hoping to post some photos of the CK Scrapbook Expo tomorrow, I'll probably spend some time at Lila's Booth since she is down there also, and I've been saving my pennies since I found so many great deals last year, I didn't want to have to hold back!

Talk with you soon!
