The inspiration for this layout is my sons beautiful wife & my sweet daughter-in-law, Stephanie. They had their wedding photos done outside in an urban setting, and this was a large older brick building that had been painted red for some reason! They were plopped on the sidewalk getting some photos taken & a groomsman snapped this picture! It really was a magical moment! I will have more wedding ones to come!
I used patterned paper from 3 different BasicGrey collections!
Boxer, Mellow & Ambrosia. I think they worked well together! Love that paper!
The background paper had small red dots, so I added some red polka dot flowers made my Prima to carry the red throughout. Layered flowers were made with my Sizzix Big Shot & silver buttons were added as centers.
I also made flourishes of two different colors with a QuickKutz die & my Big Shot.
The large flourishes are FancyPants & have been inked with Tim Holtz Distress black soot ink. Red & black diamond Stickles were added to highlight the flourish.
I used BasicGrey raw chip alphabet in the title. It was inked with Adirondack cranberry ink & Tim Holtz Distress worn lipstick ink.

The scalloped mat was cut by hand using a spool of thread as my scalloped edge! I punched the center of the scallop & distressed with black soot ink. The photo flourish was done with black cardstock & a Cuttlebug die in my Big Shot machine.
Thanks for taking a look! :)
