Wedding Card - day two

Today I'm posting the wedding card I made for John and Julie. But, before I show you the card, I have to show you the inspiration.  Did you see Kim Kesti's card on the cover of the September/October Paper Crafts magazine? 

When I saw her card, I knew I wanted to CAS it for the wedding card. I thought I could simulate the beach sunrise and although it took a while.............this is how my card came out:
First I pulled all my colors for the card and then punched and punched and punched out EK Success scallops. When it came to the actual sunrise, I didn't like how the sun was popping out from behind the scallops, so I decided to cut off three of the scallops to make the horizon.

I used yellow/gold MS glitter for the sun and then used the PTI sea grass stamps we used for the actual invite.
I was quite pleased with the result, but what I wasn't happy with was the fact that I was making the card the NIGHT BEFORE our flight was leaving! I hardly procrastinate THAT bad.......but luckily, the glitter glue dried!!!
One last shot from the weekend...........my hubby and I!
Thanks for your visit! Hope you are having a great day!!!

I scrolled through your other recent posts and I love how you made this card resemble the gorgeous wedding invitations! It sounds like John and Julie had a beautiful wedding, and I hope they have an equally beautiful marriage.

It's nice seeing a photo of you, too! :)

I love your CASE. I never would have thought to create a sun rise this way. I love the way it turned out.
