Modern Wedding Colors

It seems to me that weddings now a days love to break away from traditional colors.
Over at Joy's Life Design Team we are making things this week focusing on the colors Orange, Turquoise and Yellow.  Over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog, our current Challenge is Wedding and/or Anniversary.  I love combing challenges.  It makes it even MORE challenging.  So my challenge was to make a wedding card using the non-traditional colors, Orange, Turquoise and Yellow.

Here is what I came up with.


I started by cutting my background pieces with the Scalloped Rectangles.  I embosses the Turquoise on with the Dotted Swiss Embossing Plate and the Orange with the Black Eyed Susan Embossing Plate.


I made the pears out of the smallest of the eggs in the Nesting Eggs set.  I then just altered the egg to make it look more like a pear and less like and egg.


I embellished the rest of the card with Pretty Petals






The cute phrase is actually 2 parts of 2 different phrases combined to make this perfect wedding card.
Bot phrases are from a set called Yummy Puns by Joy's Life Stamps.
I hope you have enjoyed my offbeat humor in my project today.
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today's post.
