Autumn Splendor

I wanted to make a unique autumn card. This card has been on my mind in a fall color scheme with rolling hills pattern using textured solids. The white cardstock is stamped and pops through stamped fallscape of orange sky using a circle punch. Together it is a flowing movement of autumn leaves, wind and hills.

The Happy couple!

Our friends son is marrying a great gal and I made this card especially for them, even tried to match their hair and skin tones. I paper pieced a lace dolie onto the brides dress and I loved the results, it looks runway ready! I have had this stamp set tucked away waiting for a wedding and thought this is the perfect time to bring it out and finally use it!

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Tuxedo Card

I needed the perfect wedding card for my two friends who will tie the knot the beginning of October. Since it's a two tuxedo wedding I thought this was the perfect card for them. On the lapel is a red rose boutineer and in the shirt pocket is a red kerchief made from Really Reasonable Ribbon Sheer and Satin Christmas Assortment. If you look closely you can see I used a bling butterfly beside the rose to look like leaves.  So I was then able to enter RRR Challenge this week too.
The jacket is held closed with a tiny magnet set. 
I liked making this card for my friends, I hope they enjoy it.
I was pleased to enter these challenges since this card is perfect for my entries.
