Purple Wedding Card

This card is A5 in size.
Purple Wedding Card using handmade papers
This is another wedding card made for a friend who requested that I took elements from a wedding invitation to make a wedding card. Now all I can say is the invitation was very purple and offered me very little in ideas other that it was quite opulent, and included silver ribbon and a tassel.
Now I am assuming/hoping that the purple of the invitation is going to follow through to the wedding ….. because as you can see my card is also very purple!!
Purple wedding card handmade papers
I have taken a handmade paper and covered the front of an A5 blank, adding a silver ribbon to take the edge off the pattern a little.  The sentiment is printed on a metallic silver paper then mat and layered on a matching purple and silver mirror card.
To finish the whole thing off I’ve added a scattering of iridescent glass flat backed gems to the middle of all the daisies.  I shall await her opinion!

I just love silver and purple too.
I'm sure they will be very pleased with it. I love the way you have used the gems to highlight the flower centres on the gorgeous handmade paper.
