We're Going To The Chapel And Getting Sketchy

Here it is! My first card as an offical member of the Craft Your Passion Design Team! Whooo Hooo! I am so excited to have been asked to be a part of this talented group of ladies, and I am looking forward to getting to know all of them.

The Challenge at CYP this week is a sketch. Stop by Craft Your Passion and play along with us in the sketch challenge for your chance to win a great prize!

This is the perfect card for summer, since summer means weddings! Lots and lots of weddings!

I used the sketch at Craft Your Passion this week, for the card layout. The bride image is called Rockette Wedding and is from Coco Dingo. I wanted to keep this card simple to show off the awesome bride image. The background paper is embossed with silver accents. I added some sparkle to the image with a clearstar jelly roll pen (another of my most favorite tools!). I chose a monochrome theme, in attempt to add elegance, and some red for accents. The red accents were colored in using promarkers. The flowers are from Prima, with skittles as the flower centers. (I boughta big bag of these skittles last year and I'm still haven't used even half the bag of these old things!)
