Hi there! I am trying to get back into the groove after my amazing trip to NYC. I had a wonderful time bopping around the city with my niece. The big highlight for me was going to see The Lion King. I have always wanted to see that show and there was something magical about seeing it in New York. I decided not to take my camera and to use the camera on my phone instead......wrong thing to do. Something happened and most of my pictures are gone. I have a few I took in Times Square and a few from Yankee Stadium. I am so bummed about this. Next time I go somewhere, I will take my camera for sure.
The card I am sharing with you today is for the Outlaws Challenge Group's Thursday Twist challenge. This week, we were challenged to make a wedding themed card. Egads, I did not know what I was going to do. I decided to use this elegant couple image from Penny Black. I decided to go with a CAS style as the image is so elegant.
I started with a white card base and ran it through the Cuttlebug with one of my Tim Holtz embossing folders and rounded the corners. The Penny Black image was stamped in black ink onto some white cardstock and the corners were rounded to match the card base. I added a wee bit of C1 Copic marker to the dress and tux and Tombow marker #192 for the leaves of the flowers. I dotted the flowers with Tombow Mono Multi and sprinkled with Flower Soft. I really like how clean and elegant this card turned out.
We would love to have you join us at the Outlaws Thursday Twist challenge, each week there are prizes to win. So get busy and create a wedding themed card and head over to the group and share it with us.
