Le Wedding Card.

Now I wonder if that should be "le" or "la" wedding card? Feel free, anyone out there in the blogasphere, to correct my ignorant French!

Anyhoo, this is the card for the wedding of the acceptance I made here.

See that little image? That's from a Graphic 45 (surprise, surprise) Le Romantique paper. I scanned the sheet, then printed it onto white Bazzill for a little texture and used a gold gel pen to accent a few of the folds in the brides dress. You can see the result  in the closeup photo further down.

And here's that closeup. 

I'm feeling particularly clever, as I would usually buy that sort of thing, but gave it a go myself because I wanted a quite small one. Sooo easy! I don't know why I've been scared of them!!

I wasn't sure about using black card for the base, thought maybe it was a bit funeralish, but I'm pretty happy with overall look. Pretty formal looking I think.
