Lifetime of Happiness...

Hi there! Thanks for stopping in! I made a card today using this week's SFYTT. It was a real challenge trying to figure out what to put in the top panel, but I think it works this way.

First, the sketch:



And now my card..



I thought these colors were perfectly suited for a wedding. Love them together! I used Melon Berry (papertrey) and Early Espresso (su)..yum! I did not have Melon Berry ink, so I sponged Chocolate Chip on my little Labels 4 panel and then sponged over that with Pumpkin Pie..I think it blended well enough and works well with the Melon Berry.

I used the SU Vintage Wallpaper folder again. I think it really lends itself to wedding cards..so pretty.

Ok, well I hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Laters!

Keva, I think I'm going to place a SU order now! I have seen that wonderful embossing folder used so many times and it just looks beautiful on your card here. You MUST do a sponging video.....I need help! :)

Keva, this is an awesome interpretation of the sketch! I was also stumped by that top panel but you made it work perfectly. Your sponging looks beautiful, such a rich and elegant mix of colors.
