Celebrate Love- A natural, casual wedding Card

Hello again!  Here is my natural, earthy, casual wedding card for a wedding I have coming up in August.  Think burlap and twine, brown paper and mason jars with candles.  You know, all things hot and trendy on Pinterest right now!  I helped this bride design her invitations and I must say they turned out great!  I might post one, but they are hard to photograph and even harder to appreciate without it in your hand...  I wanted to make her a wedding card with the same style and design so here it is. 

Everything is lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink for a softened look.  The Wild Wasabi piece is distressed (just crumpled then smoothed out) and torn.  And the poppies were colored with an Aqua Painter and some Wild Wasabi ink. 

I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches on this one, and obviously let some things off kilter to make it my own.  If you look closely I'm sure you'll see the resemblence though! 
 And a shot at the inside too.  You may notice by now, I like things a little off kilter, unusual and asymetrical.  Hope you like it anyway!  :)  Thanks for visiting. 

SUO Supplies
Stamps:  Pleasant Poppies, Fabulous Phrases, Full of Life
Colors:  Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Naturals Ivory
Accessories:  (NEW!) Woodgrain embossing folder, Antique brad, Linen Thread, Decorative Label punch (inside), sponge, Modern Label Punch
