Happy Aloha Friday Everyone!
It's been a long time since I've posted a Lilo's Fun Friday, so today I thought I'd take the time to update that.  (I will try to post a LLF when I'm not posting for KBD.)  

For today's Lilos' Fun Friday I wanted to share a new card I just finished.  One of my good friends asked if I could make a wedding card for her niece who just recently got married.  She was so sweet, saying she wanted a one-of-a-kind card.  She knows how to get to me. (haha)  Actually I was happy to make one, it's been a while since I made a card for this occasion, so it was a nice change.  It was a toss up between two of my favorite images, but I decided to choose this one because of a picture my friend sent me from the wedding.  I thought this image suited the couple and the picture she shared.   I went with a simple layered design with papers from MME. 

Wedding card with Mr. & Mrs.

The image is called Mr. & Mrs. from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps. After choosing the papers and dies I just started to build the card up.  Love the MME paper, it's so pretty and sparkly. Thought adding the doily gave it a really nice touch.  The sentiment is from AmyR Wedding sentiments and I used an EK Success punch to cut it out. Lastly I added the photo corners.  Yes I did fussy cut the image.  Almost lopped off her arm!  It was a close call, and I'm happy to report that no one was hurt in the process. ;)

Inside of wedding card
Normally I don't make anything on the inside, but it didn't feel finished to me, so I mimicked the front, but instead of an image I chose two more sentiments from the same AmyR Wedding sentiments set.  I was so proud of myself for getting the sentiment straight inside the heart on the first try!  yay!  The second sentiment was cut using the same EK punch as the one on the front of the card.  This card turned out to be a favorite of mine after I was done.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!  I really hope they like the card.  Thanks Rose for asking. I had a lot of fun making this one. 

It's going to be a busy weekend for me but I'll try to stop by and see what you've been up to.  Mahalo for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Oh, they are going to LOVE this card. It is absolutely perfect. I love how you put just the right amount of detail...not overly frilly. Your color palette is non-traditional for a wedding card, but it works extremely well because red and pink makes me think of love. Thanks for sharing your inspirational talent.
