A Joyful Wedding Card for PPA 289

Our Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week is a color challenge, and as you can see we were to make a card using Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, and Night of Navy.  As I was looking at these colors together, I couldn't help but think - wedding!  So that is what I did, a wedding card ~

I used several stamp sets, the predominant one being Big News.  I had used this set for the other sentiments, but realized I hadn't yet used the wedding ones.

The tiny rows of hearts is from Chalk Lines.  The large background flowers are from Garden in Bloom.

Remove the ribbon and the card opens from 2 directions.  I'm not sure if this is called the "Joy Fold" but that would be appropriate for a wedding card!  The squiggles and hearts are from the Tin of Cards set.

If you are planning to give the wedding couple a gift card, there is room for it on the inside right flap.

This was a fun card to make!  I will post measurements and directions in my March Newsletter.  If you would like to receive that in your email, simply sign up for it in the "Contact Me" above this post.  Please specify that you would like to receive my newsletter in the drop down box.  You will receive it right after the first of the month.  I would be delighted to add you to my list!
