Wedding neutrals

It was only after I sent this wedding card that I realised that a birdcage isn’t perhaps the most appropriate image! Hope the bride and groom don’t feel caged in – oops! I’m not very good at elegant cards for frilly occasions such as weddings so I went for soothing neutrals – but with a hint of bling. Which, of course, the photo doesn’t show. After I completed the card I spritzed it with some Champagne Mist shimmer spray made from Champagne Mist shimmer paint and alcohol.

But, other than the bling you can’t see, the perhaps drab colours for a wedding and the inappropriate image, I really do like this card!
