Project 231: A slightly funky wedding card



I was asked to make a wedding card for a colleague's wedding for all of us to sign and I was delighted. This guy is great, and his fiancee is a very cool chick, they have a funky retro style and I'm a big fan of them both.

I used this KennyK image as it's so easy to personalize and am entering their Anything Goes challenge. He has jet black hair and a turned up coif while she has ombre orange hair. Yes orange. Not ginger, not trying to be red. Orange. Love it. They are both covered in tattoos and I thought this image allowed opportunities to make it all about them. I also got to use it for my 30 day coloring challenge.

I did a bit of facebook stalking and talking to colleagues to also do some stalking to get a good photo of the bride's left arm. I managed to get a few that showed a star, with a bit of a dashed line and then the top of a heart that leads to a half sleeve with roses and diamonds and some other very cool retro images.

Their wedding scheme is creme and pink and this Neopolitan Recollections pack was perfect - the little greeting is from there as well.

I kept it simple with some candies and a little bit of glitter on the earring and flowers. I think it will work really well and I'm excited to give it to him at his going away party later this week.
