A wedding card

For the most time, I love to have birds on wedding cards.  It just seems so natural and most cards look better with a bird.  Having said that, I got a little bored with it and I wanted to make a non-traditional wedding card. 

I still have birds on my card but they are ducks! 

Isn't that cute?  Different from traditional wedding cards, right?

As always, this card has evolved a lot from what I envisioned when I started.  First off I didn't mean to have the ducks!  Second, flying ducks?  No way!  I knew I wanted a bright yellow sun and the sentiment "Oh Happy Day."  The next thing was naturally some clouds but what next?  I colored some pieces here and there, not necessarily meant to put on this card, then I tried using a frog but it doesn't really match with the big bright sun.  I wanted to use a rabbit but I felt that the same problem persists.  The next thing I know was that I tried to put on those ducks on the background.  Not bad, huh, with a black bow on one and a pink bow on the other?  There we go!  Wait a second.  How do we make them up in the sky?  Balloons!  So I stamped the strings, fussy cut out the balloons and draw a little black line next to the duckies' hands to deceive everyone that they are holding onto the balloons.

I think it is very cute and will bring a smile to the couple, don't you think?
