Commissioned Wedding Card

My first commissioned card! I was soooo afraid it was going to be a let down! I wanted to call and ask her so many questions, do any of you feel that way? I felt though that I needed to be able to figure it out for myself if I'm going try and make a habit of this.
So, here is what I came up with...

I got this adorable LOTV stamp from my dear friend Loz. Thanks again Loz, you are such a sweetheart! Anyway, I didn't have much to go on for this card just that it was to be a traditional wedding and the couple had brown hair. EEEEkkkk! Where to begin!!! I scoured my papers...there are many...then I remembered this stack(g.c.d. Ella Blue) that may be perfect!! I saw this particular paper and fell in love!! However, IMP they're weren't any other papers in the stack that REALLY went with it so I had to work something out! Luckily I had some pewter cardstock that was perfect and I could just layer the one DP, YAY!
Here's a little closer look at the couple. He is colored in copics w:7,5,3,1 then all over that with C1. W was a might too brown and C was just a bit too gray I found this combo perfect!! I out lined her dress in v91 and the flowers were colored with v99,95,93,&91. I used Frosted lace stickles on the back of her dress and around the flowers. I could've blinged it out a bit more, but I liked this one a bit understated...I think it's a nice simply elegant card.
Well that's it for now. I've got more in the works and DT posts coming up in the coming days so check back soon.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting!
Have a great day!
