TWO Black and White WEDDING Cards, Creative Expressions

A  Wedding  Prayer  Card
Hello and Happy Sunday Crafters. I'm so glad you stopped by today!  :)
I'm super excited to be showing you two cards today. First is this Black and White Card that comes with a lovely Cross Pendant ( ideal for a Wedding, or any Christian Celebration like Anniversary, Communion, or Confirmation). It was created using with Sue Wilson's NEWLY released Collections; Finishing Touches Ornamental Corners and Caribbean Island Background Dies.  

Oh my, wait until you see Sue Wilson's NEWEST 38 releases!!  They are stunning, ornamental and just incredible in design and versatility!  I'm in LOVE. I'm especially diggin' how the large Caribbean BG die can give your card that beautiful pierced look. I love how these Finishing Touches Ornamental Corners can be arranged in various ways to form different looks too.   Ive used these corner cuts to showcase the Cross Pendant on my Wedding Card. Did this by adhering corner cuts to the center of a smaller oval behind main panel holding the Lovely Cross. The Background was embossed using a Darice EF.

(This lovely Pendant is only attached at the top of the ribbon bow, so it's completely removable). Would be great for adding it to a Necklace, or a Bracelet or for decorating a Wedding Album Cover or adding to a personal Bible...
