Concord Crush Wedding Card

We had a fabulous time in Jamaica. My niece was married on the beach, and there were 72 of us who joined in the celebrations. It really was a trip of a lifetime. Last evening we got together again to party the night away and celebrate their marriage. We had a crazy drive as we were hit with a surprise snow storm. However, we made it and danced till 2am!

This is the card I made for the happy couple. Love the tulip embossing folder, and the butterfly sizzlet that you use in the Big Shot. The purple colour is concord crush and fit perfectly with the scheme for the wedding.

The flourish is from the set Baroque Motifs. This card really needed purple ribbon, and I didn't have any. So, I dyed some seam binding with a concord crush ink pad. Easy peasy and now I have ribbon that matches perfectly. To save on the mess, I held the ribbon down with a sponge and dragged the ribbon through the ink. I added some smooch spritz to add a lovely sheen!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your Sunday.
