A wedding card

Anyone else feel like their 'mojo' carries on having a vacation after you've returned back home? I'm sure mine is having a nice, relaxed visit to the Wellness Spa in Clarens because I sure haven't found it back home...

This card took me AGES to put together. Trying this and that, tweaking here and there ... I guess I don't have a lot of experience in making wedding cards and it's also tricky if you don't know the recipient. So you're not sure if you should go "fun" or "traditional", elegant or romantic etc. This was the final product and that's what I'm sticking to:

Close-up showing Ranger Glossy Accents and some Sakura glitter pen.

Stamp used:
Digichick: Wedding Cake

Other tools & products:
Spellbinders Rose Creations
Spellbinders Ovals & Scalloped Ovals (small)
Letack Craft "corner & border" punch
Spectrum Noir markers
Background paper: Prima "Meadow Lark"
Cardstock: GinaK Designs

This card was made for a friend of my mother's.  "Veels Geluk" means congratulations in Afrikaans. The letters were die-cut ...
