A friend asked me to make a wedding card for her to give to a young man who lives in our neighborhood and his new bride. She requested it be big.....half-fold size instead of my usual A2 quarter-fold size.....and she wanted it very fancy...and spiritual. I take quite a few orders for my cards and I try to make them special each time, but a wedding card is so super-special that I was feeling a lot of pressure and stress to make it meet expectations.
Additionally, the new couple got married a few weeks previously, so all my stamps that said "On your wedding day" or similar sentiments wouldn't really work. In fact, NONE of my usual wedding stamps really fit the bill for this order. Thank goodness for online suggestions!! I searched "Christian wedding card sentiments" and found a selection from 1 Corinthians 13, the Love Chapter. I knew it would be perfect.
The friend requesting the card also made mention of a rainbow. For the life of me, I could not figure out how to use one on a wedding card! I finally decided to use silver and aqua with a rainbow assortment of flowers in very pale hues with satiny pearl centers for embellishments.
What do you think of it?

We are still having very cool weather right now but warmer days are on the way. Can't wait to get back out in my garden again. Hope I can avoid being swallowed by all the weeds that have grown during this cool rainy period!! lol...
