Wedding card for Mark and Trey

Saturday December 17, 2016
 
Hello.. I have a fun Saturday card to share with you today. My baby brother Mark got married to his partner Trey after 13 years together on December 3, 2016.   They finally tied the knot..
I am sure some of you don't believe in this. .. but I love my brother and stand by him and feel we all deserve love and happiness between consenting adults.  We've come a long way in this world and I have dear friends who are gay and I have no issues. I don't think this defines who we are. There are so many things that make us who we are.  We are all human and have issues..
I'm overweight so I'm sure there are people who look at this as wrong and have issues with my body, my looks. I remember growing up and being left handed and teachers (this was in the early 50's) trying to make me right handed because it was the right thing to be.. well it didn't work. I'm still left handed even though I use my right hand for some things only because there didn't happen to be left handed scissors or measuring cups available for me. 
 
Any way back to my card.. I cut the figures in the background out of black.. these are the friends and family who stand up for the married couple and wish them well.. I cut the gentlemen out of kraft and punched out a Stampin up heart and EK heart and adhered it over their joined hands. I used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the hearts. I cut the Congratulations by Simon Says out of a scrap piece of DCWV paper. I like the colors and also carried it over to the flower. The flower die is from My Favorite things, in fact all dies except the word is MFT..  I did use some Quick Quote ink on the flower petals and leaves. I added some micro mini beads to the center of the flower.  The background paper is a scrap I think from DCWV. I love the message this card give. I'll have to keep this in mind for another wedding card.  I hope they have many more years of happiness and building more memories..

Oh wow...this is soooo different for a wedding card....I LOVE it and the flower is beautiful...gosh, the textures are awesome. It's more of the masculine side which I love....I've never leaned toward all the lacy stuff for weddings. I wish your brother and his partner the very best. 13 years together speaks volumes of their devoting to each other. Oh my gosh...thought you were talking about me being left-handed and teacher trying to change me, but then I got a teacher who was very understanding and told me to turn my paper the other way...like a mirror to the other students and told me I was special and will be an artist when I grew up....she was right and I don't remember her name but I'll always remember her being kind.
