This is my second post for the same contest. I'm also going to try to participate in the Moxie Fab World Taintor-tude contest...but I definitely digress. ;)
OK So there is a contest over at CAARDVARKS to get published in Cards Magazine.
is hosting a contest for...
So... the contest is to create your best wedding card. I never like to make just one of a card, so I ended up creating 8 cards for this challenge. This post (4) I tried to do one each of a "gold', a "silver" and a "black and white" wedding cards, and...additionally I did a card for a couple that flew to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic to get married on the beach... (there is also a second post with the other four cards, my version of "Winter", "Spring", "Summer" and "Fall").
My Island wedding card...
For this beach wedding, the bride chose pink for the bridesmaids. I thought I would do this as their wedding card because destination weddings are becoming more popular... (It will be mailed after the contest closes)
