Wuv, True Wuv {Grey & Yellow Wedding Card}

Remember that part from The Princess Bride where 
That never gets old for me. I laugh every. single. time. 

"Wuv, twue wuv..." I'm laughing even now... 

Okay, I'm trying to be serious now. That's what the "True Love" rub-on I used on this card made me think of. 

Ahhh, funny what random phrases can trigger, hey? 


Do you still love grey & yellow as much as I do? 

Good. I'm still in major like. I was at a wedding a year ago that had grey & yellow as the colours & it was gorgeous! My favourite wedding colour palette to date, I think.

This was a fairly simple card to pull together. The only tricky part was the bling. The way it was originally configured didn't work on the card, so I cut it into a few sections & pieced it together in a design that worked for me.

I've had those yellow paper flowers in my stash for a few years now. It's about time I used them! ;)

After adding the grey ribbon across the bottom, I decided the card needed a bit more yellow so I layered a thin, yellow, velvet ric-rac ribbon over it. I really like the effect!
