Wedding Card: CardPatterns Sketch 129

Hi there crafter friends! We are more than halfway through the week and looking forwrad to a lovely weekend. In Malaysia we are looking forward to a long week of rest next week (yay!) in conjunction with the 'Raya' celebration (aka Eid i.e an important Muslim festival which marks the end of Ramadhan).

Anyway, I made a quick card for a wedding coming Sunday. It's for a lovely widowed couple in their late fifties who have found love a second time around in their lives. How blessed is that? To be able to find someone to share your twilight years with? I'm so happy for them both :)

Here's the card... I made it RED because the older Chinese generations sees red as an auspicious color. We normally give an 'angpau' or 'red envelope' with a love gift inside for weddings so we're using this 'red card' instead of the 'angpau' :) So there you go you learn something new aboout our Chinese custom if you don't already know this :)

Papers are MME's Laundry Line & 7Gypsies Lillie. Edge & butterfly punch; Martha Stewart, fancy circle; Slice Dilly Dally.

The inspirational sketch.

I was actually running low on mojo, been quite stressed out planning the birthday party. Thankfully I know I can always count on my favorite card sites for inspirational sketches :)

Thanks for looking! Have a nice day ahead :)
