Horseshoe and Hockey Stick

Hi there 🙂 This card was specially made for an extra special couple. Both the bride and groom are the children of good friends from different periods of my life. It was amazing when I found out they found each other, and even more so watching their love blossom. The bride is a huge horse lover, and the groom has been a hockey goalie since he was about 3!! So, of course, I had to put together a card that really depicted the both of them! I had the Horseshoe and Rose image, from Just Inklined (sadly, this store has closed), and found a goalie stick image online, then merged them together. I added the sentiment before printing. I found out the wedding colors, and used that scheme to color this with my Copics.

After I finished coloring, I very carefully placed teeny tiny rhinestones around the flowers, to give a bit of bling. I matted the image with silver mirror card, and placed it on a background that I’d embossed with hearts. Some silver foil sticker corners finished the card off.

I’d like to enter this in the following:
