Inspired by colour..


When I saw the Color Throwdown #297 colours and image this week, I instantly thought of a wedding card I need to make..

I love the end result of my card, it's so bright and cheery, very summer wedding.

I used a lot of Simon Says Stamp items here - the cake, flower, sentiment stamps. The cake and rectangle scallop dies are also by them.

I used circle dies for the layers underneath the cake. The blue and yellow card are by Canford, the chevron paper is by Recollections. The pretty yellow heart ribbon is by American Crafts and all the bling is by Papermania. The flowers on the cake were coloured using Promarkers.

I really like the sentiment - not a traditional wedding sentiment. I heat embossed it using Smoke ink by SimonSaysStamp and grey embossing powder by Stampendous.

Really happy that the challenge inspired this pretty wedding card.



  1. HI Claire, hope you're having a great weekend! I love this gorgeous card - the colours are fab and the sentiment is sure to make any happy couple's wedding day smiles even wider...brilliant! Hugs Carole Z X
