An unconventional wedding card......

What an unusual wedding card, but my friends loved it..

I made this card for a couple of friends that got married in Las Vegas.

I made the base card from black spotty cardstock, I created this into a stepper card to create dimension.

I cut the background for the Las Vegas sign with an X-cut ornate frame die. I then used the memory box cloud die to create a template to create the clouds in the background. I used sky blue ink to do this.  I then painstakingly cut out the Vegas sign a few times to create a decoupage effect.

I coloured everything with Promarkers.

Gems were used to give lots of ‘bling’ and lots of feathers.

Lili of the Valley wedding day sentiment was used along with a few other embellishments.

Hope you like it……
