Wedding Wishes

I made a wedding card for my husband's cousin.  It's my first time trying to do darker skin tones with my Copic markers.  It was even more difficult since I only have 5 brown markers!  Their colors are pink and brown.  The guys will be wearing brown tuxes, so to do a brown tux with dark skin and have some degree of color difference was a big challenge for me!  I used Jane's layout from Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar from last week (114) again as I just loved that sketch!

Here's the inside.  We will be adding a personal message inside.

Here's the back.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar:  pink and brown
Oldie but a Goodie:  use a stamp at least 6 months old, ribbon and lace
Cute Card Thursday:  at least 1 circle

Stamps:  Magnolia wedding collection from summer 2010, sentiment stamp inside is from Verve (also over 6 mo. old)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers:  SU! (pink and dps)
Other:  Ribbon from JoAnn's, lace from stash, circle Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities for inside, Recollections mini roses, knitting needle to curl wires, Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2, Copic markers

Thanks for stopping by!
