Color Throwdown 142/ Strength & Hope Wedding

It's been a while since I've participated in the Color Throwdown & I would like to get back in the habit. This week's colors include Basic Black, Basic Gray, & Lime Green. For my green selection, I picked Certainly Celery. I knew I wanted to use the elegant butterfly from Strength & Hope & then the rest of the card just sort of flowed. :) Remember that for every Strength & Hope set SU sells they will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Also, I'm going to enter everyone who buys one from me in May into a drawing for one of my unmounted stamp sets. It's really hard for me to create a wedding card, but the season is upon us! I wanted this one to be simple, but elegant. With fewer pearls, I think it could easily become a sympathy card as well. Odd, how those two can pair so well. I inked up my Texturz Plate with Basic Gray to form the background & sponged both the Certainly Celery pieces with Basic Gray after I embossed them. A little sticky strip let me play with my ribbon to create a fun layered look. I'm sure it wouldn't go through the mail well, but most of my wedding cards are put in packages or at least delivered by hand. Then I don't have to worry about mailing issues!
