NYC Wedding Day

This is for the son and his new bride of a good friend.  He and his bride had been engaged for a while.  They recently got married at city hall in Manhattan because they researched their "lucky day", and quickly got married. 
It was a small ceremony.  They plan to have a big party when her parents can attend.

I had actually made the background a while ago -- just playing around and having fun.  So I don't really remember exactly how I made it.  But I think I used distress inks and a sun stencil.  I think I may have spritzed water through the stencil -- I know it's on water color paper.  And you can see a bunch of water splats.  Whatever -- after that, I used a skyline stencil from The Crafter's Workshop (Urban Landscape) - which has 2 options -- the solid buildings and the lined buildings.

So after that was done, I set is aside for quite a while.  Never sure what I should do with it.  Until now.  So I stenciled in some hearts, and black embossed the Congratulations.  And done -- a different but very personal wedding card. 

I'm putting this into Cardz for Galz - the theme is  WEDDINGS

It is certainly not the usual wedding card.  But it worked for them!
Thanks for taking a look.  Hope you are all well and safe.
