Here Comes the Bride

Happy Friday everyone! 
I was playing around with wedding ideas the other day. I was inspiring myself to make a card for  a wedding I am attending a  couple of weeks. This page was supposed to be my card, but ended up a journal page. (I made a different card which I will another time). Plus I had this paper I had cleaned off my paintbrush with pink and purple paint. So with some stamping, some musical tissue paper and some polka dot cloth trim, I got the base background made. 
Then I added the TH happy couple, a bit of die cut musical bits, as well as some paper flowers from my stash. I added the gears to the 2 white flowers as I thought they just worked. And then I layered all this on some white paper.
I am going to link up to Moo Mania's latest theme of MUSIC and also the Chris's We're All Going challenge at Art Journal Journey. Today we're all going to happy event. I hope they have a good band so we can dance.
Stay cool, or as cool as you can. I think we have a  warm up coming here in New Hampshire, but it looks like it won't get horribly hot until next week.
I am enjoying this gorgeous weather so too bad I can't get it to stay.
Thanks for visiting!

That's a lovely and happy piece, I'm sure your friends will appreciate it very much. Enjoy your weather, it's still 40° here and 37° in my place, so I will b very, very, very happy when it cools off! So now I'm off to make my midday salad! Have fun! Hugs, Valerie

This is a beautiful wedding card. I love the vintage couple. It's going to warm up again here in CT, too. :-(

Fabulous, love the background. I have just discovered that putting comments on some peoples blogs from my iPad doesn't work, that's why you haven't heard from me for a while, I apologise.
Hugs Wendy

This is a lovely card! Nothing is like it in the stores, it’s one of a kind that will be cherished.
Thx for visiting my blog, our Seamus is at least 45 lbs now but seems to be slowing down at 1-1/2 years. He doesn’t get along with either of our kitties, but it’s more their fault than his. He tries to play and they just grumble or swipe at him. Oh well. We love them all!

Your page would make a pretty wedding card, too. Enjoy your outing and the weather. Too bad it couldn't stay like this year round.

Love this page and sentiment, Erika.

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth.”

A great background and design. The card will look lovely, your journal page does. I love the happy couple the monotone colour combination really stands out on the page.

I love the music and flowers for that sweet couple just starting out together :) Lovely!

Astrid Maclean said...

So I am now a little confused... it is a journal page right? Glancing through the comments, it's obvious most people don't really read blog posts very carefully, (and I am often at fault myself too) - one of the reasons I am not into blogging anymore, too time consuming. Anyway, after that preamble, whether card or page, I like it, not spotted that TH paper doll before. Love the fact you used a paint mop up for the background and the additional elements make for a lovely composition. Hope you get the weather you look forward too. Here it's raining today and much cooler. Happy weekend!

A wonderful wedding card.

Have a wonderful weekend

I LOVE this Erika. I'm glad it turned into a journal page, because it's a beauty. It's absolutely perfect for Chris's theme at Art Journal Journey.

I wrote already here, but maybe it didn't go through!? A wonderful piece, the couple will love it and I love it as well. Thank you beyond belief for supporting the challenges so well

It's a beautiful page and so good to have something to celebrate! The weather here suddenly changed from boiling hot to pouring rain and the heating has been on again! I was told by a neighbour that we can expect some more periods of hot weather...each one longer than the last! I love the colours you used here - just nice and warm!! Thank you so much for sharing this at Art Journal Journey! Chrisx

Love this - the uplifting pink with all those delicious details in the background - and then the flowers bursting out of the frame... great design.

I think you should have that printed up to sell as a wedding card. Vistaprint has really good deals if you don't have a home printer. I love it! Very marketable.
