Dreams Come True - CTD #243

Good morning - happy Wednesday!!  Today's card is my newest creation for the Color Throwdown Challenge team - and it's made in celebration of these delightful colors:  Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist as well as Black and White.  I love the inspiration that came to me from this grouping.  

Today's card is for the CTD #243, and also for a very special Nephew who's getting married this weekend.  He and his bride to be are a very special couple, well suited for each other - they truly seem perfect together. 

I started by cutting the four Hearts using a Sizzix nesting dies - two panels glued together for the front, and two for the back.  This gives extra strength to the card base and hopefully helps it last the test of time!!

May all your Dreams come true

Next I stamped the Rubbernecker Sentiment, die-cut and colored the flourish, punched the pine-spray/sprigs and arranged all the colorful flowers.  At that point I added the blue border and highlighted the sentiment using Copic markers, then assembled/glued the flowers.

Here's a picture that shows the standing card, opened:

Hi, Audrey. As is often my way of doing things, prior to reading the post, I click on the photos to see them enlarged, and really look "things" over. When I did that, my favorite piece to your magnificent creation was the white flourish which you hand colored. So I had to read the entire post to discover how you made your card. Then I saw "hand colored the flourish". Did you use regular water based markers for that? I love the effect, and it looks particularly great with these colors. The sentiment is pretty, too - I have not seen that one before, and it is so versatile, isn't it? Audrey, I hope you enjoy your nephew's wedding, and that they enjoy a long, happy life together. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card. hugs, de
