Bride and Groom Best Wishes

One of the ladies that I work with asked me if I would make her a wedding card for her friend's upcoming wedding. Her only stipulations were that it be black and white only and include "Best Wishes." So, this is the card that I came up with. I opted to go with a square card for a more formal look. I hope she likes it. I'm not sure why the Bride and Groom silhouette look faded, they're actually a really good solid black. Must have been the flash on the camera. *Sigh*

Here's an angle shot to show you the way I made the Bride and Groom recessed inside the window. I call this 'the card of many layers.' lol :) The picture below also shows how black the silhouettes are, unlike my picture above showing them as washed out.
I still find it a bit weird making cards for other people to buy from me when I don't know exactly what they want. It'd be easier if they would look at some of my cards and tell me they like the layout of this card, but the stamps from this card, and perhaps an embellishment from another card. I dunno, what I think is nice might not be what they like at all. But, I guess they trust me to come up with something that will be fitting. :)

Well, I think I'll rest a bit this evening, my girls had a play date today with three other little girls. Can you imagine 5 girls ranging in age from 4-7? I think I can still hear them all screeching their little girl screams of excitement. Why is that little girls feel the need the scream like that? lol :) I'm sure I did it, too, as a child and I'm sure my poor mother had the same headache that I have right now! Sorry, Mom! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

This is lovely Julie. Is the circle of the bride and groom
separate from the card, or is the
embossed sqare around it, cut out
to show the br and grm?
