CR84FN47 & Random Acts of Creativity - Wedding Cake

The weather here is so nice today - it feels like spring!  I took my girl out for a walk - she's not doing so well - she is 13 years old so I let her set the pace.  She is slower than she used to be, but it makes me appreciate her more.  Walking slower gives me the opportunity to look around more and notice the little things I might normally miss.  I'm thinking I might just sneak out later when she's napping so I can walk faster and get some exercise in.  I'm tempted to open the windows to bring some of that fresh air in the house - but decided it's better to keep my energy bill down! 

Today I'm playing along with two different challenges.  I am using the color combination/inspiration from CR84FN, and the Sketch Design from Random Acts of Creativity.   I was inspired by the "country wedding" images from the CR84FN and made a wedding congratulations card based around this theme. 


I used papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop for that 'country" feel and added felt rolled roses that I made. 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
