All Things Grow with Love

allthingsgrow

Sunday morning greetings to you all!  Wowzers, I think my Purge Blog buddies and I have started something crazy!!  I am overwhelmed by all the positive response on the first day! Wow!  See this post HERE for more details!! I’ve been asked to make some more wedding cards and was experimenting with some bold colours via the colourQ challenge this week.  What do you think?  Or should wedding cards be mostly neutral with a touch of colour?  I think it depends on the couple.  I am happy to report that the temperature has warmed up to a balmy –5 (Celsius).  It’s so nice to be outside and enjoy it rather than curse it!  LOL  Wishing you a wonderful day! Thanks for visiting!

I think they're beautiful for wedding cards! And I love that they're not traditional love colors. Beautiful :) And glad to hear your purge blog hop is going well!

Oooh I love this bold colour combo for a wedding card, Diva! It's like celebrating the occasion in a bold, fabulous style!
Both Chris and I have thought about the temp over there...if I put leggings on under my jeans we may just be able to survive (along with my mittens of course! LOL!)
Hugs!

I love bold colors for a wedding. In particular if the bride has a pop of color in the wedding party. Loving the damask paper in the background...happy sigh!

I agree, totally depends on the bride. Great use of those bold colours and those hearts may just have to be added to my ever growing PTI wish list - love them. Glad it's warmed up - we actually have grass showing once again :)
