Wedding card for friend's daughter

My friend Lori's daughter was married the beginning of September in a beautiful ceremony.  She loves the fall colors.  Her girls' dresses were cocoa brown and the bouquets were fall flowers.  When Lori asked me to do a special card for her daughter, I thought the wedding was early October.  At any rate the card was three weeks late :C.  Lori said that was OK because there was so much going on at the wedding and reception that it would have been "just another card".  By the card being late, her daughter would have time to really look at it.

Here is a picture of the card:
What fun this was to make!!

The background paper was from DCWV Luxury stack.  The copper-y paper was from DCWV Shimmer stack.  The image panel was cut from extra Luxury cardstock.  The swing and bride images were stamped on Cryogen and colored with Copics.  The edge of the copper-y layer was punched with a Fiskars punch.  The corners of the image layer were punched with SU's Notched Corner punch.

The flowers and berries were from Wild Orchid Crafts, Magnolia, Hooked on Craft and WalMart. The sheer brown ribbon was from my stash.

The inside paper is from The Paper Studio Mirabelle stack.  The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy Wedding Wishes.  The other images were also Whiff of Joy Rose Swing and Willow Sitting Bride.  Suzanne Dean had made a card using these images several years ago and it still inspires me! To dress up the inside a bit, I put some fall flowers and berry clusters over the printed flowers.

I had a lot of fun making this card.  I hope you had some relaxing moments and fun looking at it.
I would really love to hear what you think about the card, so leave me a little love!
