to Dan & Susan

Warmest wishes to Dan and Susan, who're getting married next weekend. My boss asked me to make a card using hydrangeas in the palest of greens, and the palest of pinks as an accent color - colors they'll use at their wedding. The inside sentiment is a snippet of the wedding song, Someone to Watch Over Me, in the form of a pull-out card.

I printed the hydrangea image twice - on vellum and again on a mottled light green cardstock, then cut the flowers from the green cardstock. I colored the back of the vellum cardstock using green watercolor markers, then mounted the green mottled flowers to the back of the vellum and triple-matted it on Shimmery White, Medium Fairy Tale Pink (so appropriate a color name, don't you think?! wink!), and some beautifully textured dark green Ruche cardstock. I scored both the outside and inside ivory cardstock to match. Thinking it still needed something, I added some mini pearls and added a touch of SU stampin' glitter to the largest flowers. Hope they like it!
