A colorful, different kind of wedding card

A friend ordered a wedding card for a service with a multicolored theme. She wanted a card that was full of color (no pastels)! Now you probably wouldn't think it, but this was a tough one for me. How to make a card that reflected the romance and tenderness one associates with a wedding, but has lots of color? After much head scratching (and a failed attempt or two) I came up with this one.

The focal point stamp was a fantastic gift from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine (you can see another card I've made with this same set here).

The flowers, stick pin and ribbon soften the look and lend a little romance. The small rectangle to the left is Tim Holtz Kraft Core paper, embossed with an Artemio embossing plate, then sanded.
