Here Comes the Bride

 For a friend of my daughter- who got married today : )

  Oh how I love this sweet image from Graciellie Designs. She is a talented artist- and I love her style!  Her images are also available at Unity Stamps (This set is called Your Life is Your Story).
  The card is 5.25" x 5.25".  I lightly water colored the image by scribbling a marker on a stamping block and spritzing it with water.  The greens are Pear and Old Olive (SU). I used So Saffron and Coral (SU as well) markers on the block for the flowers.  After round 1 dried, I used the Olive and Coral markers to add highlights, then lightly blended the colors in.  I added some Ranger Antique Linen ink from a marker to the block and did the edges of the book on the sides and the bottom. To finish up, I used Copics BG0000 around the flowers and book, and C2 at the edge of the sides and the base of the book.
 The top layer of white (just above the silver metallic card) is a shimmery white card. I added Wink of Stella to the outer white later to balance that out. The Silver thin ribbon is SU.

 I am imagining for this couple, the book is the Bible, so on the inside, I used a stamp I scored at the Gina K store last summer (and am just using it for the first time....).

 I know they will love this!  Especially the bride.

Your card is gorgeous, Shelly! I almost bought that stamp set, but talked myself out of it. Now I'm regretting my decision after seeing your lovely card!
