It's Your Big Day

The end of the year seems to be a season for weddings, and this weekend the family has a wedding to attend.  For Chinese families, weddings are usually huge affairs with hundreds of guests.  Maybe it's a little like the Greek wedding movie ;-) It'll be like a family reunion - some cousins I've not seen in years will be there, and I guess we have quite some catching up to do.

Traditionally all wedding cards are red, but today most people are no longer superstitious and so it's acceptable to give cards in any colour.  Here's the card:


I used the stamps from Cameo Creations, Ovals - Classic Frames and sentiment from Say It Loud.  The patterned papers are from Lily Bee's Picket Fence.  My card follows this week's Waltzing Mouse sketch #77:

Thanks for visiting me.  As always, I love reading all your comments and hear what you think.

Have a great day!

Hi Kary!

Love this card! These images are so perfect for a wedding, very lovely! How nice to read that traditional cards were always in red! Well, I love purple, so I'm happy that you were 'allowed' to create this card! :-)

Hugs, Wendy

The embellishments add some class to the card and the scalloped edging is outstanding.
