FFF - Throwback Friday Challenge!

Happy Friday Friends!  It's time for FFF at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog

We are having a super fun challenge this week that requires you to break out your "old" TGF images (which let's face it...aren't that old, lol).  At the bottom of the post there is an "Exclusion List" which has the last several months worth of TGF releases on it.  Here's the deal:  You can use any TGF image(s) on your project BUT those stamps.  So dust off your very first TGF purchases and make them shine again :0) 

Make sure to check out the fabulous DT "Throwback" samples on the challenge blog HERE

I was asked to make a wedding card for one of my co-worker's.  Her colors were brown and a reddish-orange color.  I found this tutorial on fancy fold cards on Kim Yu's blog a while back and thought if I could pull this off it would be the faciest card this couple was going to get.  

For my images I chose Jeremy from the Roll Call Kit and WS Dressy Joyce (digi). 

I altered Joyce, by giving her an up-do instead of her normal flowing hair.  The tiara is a sticker and behind her is a veil I cut up with some tulle.  Aren't they just the sweetest couple? 

The papers were white cs, brown cs and this fabulous red & white patterned paper (Sorry I don't remember the brand).  I used Spellbinders Labels 7 for the sentiment (sorry don't remember where the stamp came from, but I know it's a clear stamp.)  I distressed the patterned paper to give it a fancy vintage feel.   Here is the finished card in all it's glory:

Here is a view from the top:

Beautiful card! Beautifully colored. It reminds me of Emmet and Rosalie,but I'm thinking that's the vibe you were going for seeing you added a mole to her :)
And I have been wanting to try to make one if these style cards but I've been a little lazy. Lol.

Thanks for the info on the digis! I went back to coloring the (gray) one that I started yesterday and there is a definite improvement. Still blends and bleeds a little though, but not totally crazy!
