Wedding Bliss

"There is something about a wedding gown prettier
than any other gown in the world."

Douglas Jerrold's Wit: A Wedding Gown; Douglas Jerrold, 1859.

I was asked to do a greeting card for a wedding and decided to do a series of cards for the bride, the couple, the bridesmaids, to the mother of the bride. I'm so excited because when you're creating something, especially about love, it's inspiring! 

I've added a touch of the Caribbean (of course!) to these cards with tropical flowers, trees, vintage backgrounds, and even some of ole' time quotes that they'll remember hearing from their parents. I love silhouettes, so something about this sista' posing in her fabulous dress and some ribbon doily at the bottom of the gown for some dimension.

I'm NOT into the "Bridezilla" show but I love "My Fair Wedding" with David Tutera, I occasionally watch the "Amazing Wedding Cakes" and I am going to definitely watch the "Brides Maids" movie... so enjoy the wedding season and watch love bloom...

Light n' Love,


  1. I love this. Your truly inspiring me sis.

  2. Jahzara ditto!! Your pieces are fabulous! I have an African and Caribbean print wedding dress greeting card coming soon!
