A cat wedding?

Two of my good friends (that I have made here in Cambridge) got married yesterday. It was such a beautiful wedding and I can say hand on heart that it was one of the nicest weddings Andrew and I have been to! Plus the rain held off which made it extra special. Congrats guys!

I had looked in a few shops for wedding cards as I didn't have any in my card stash and didn't think I would have time to make one but I was getting very frustrated trying to find a decent wedding card so felt I had to make a personalised one for them! They have a gorgeous little cat called Amber so I thought this stamp would be ideal for them! I also wanted to make a 'non-traditional' card for them to stand out a bit...

Lilac seems to be very 'in' at the moment fashion-wise so I took a bit of inspiration from dresses I had seen on the red carpet...

I thought it would be nicer to personalise with their initials rather than their full names...

Absolutely love these roses...

Stamped using bronze ink and accented with gold pen...

Something a bit different? Definitely colours I wouldn't normally put together...

Pleased with the way it turned out! They had a postbox for everyone to put their cards into at the wedding (very cool idea) so hopefully I'll get some feedback soon from the happy couple :)

Have a good week everyone!
