I Do

I DoI am loving this sketch, from The Sketchy Challenges, so much, that I had to make ONE more card with it (doubt it will be the last one!!).

I used an image from Sweet Escapes, sadly I’m not seeing it in the shop any longer, but I’m so happy to have it, as it makes a lovely focal point for a wedding card!! After coloring the roses, I added some Wink of Stella to the bride’s dress, and some pearl jewellery.  I fussy cut the image out, the assembled the card, following the sketch, and using all kinds of scraps of paper that I had :)  The sentiment and the silver accents are from a sticker set that I recently dug up from deep in my stash, some pearls, and the silver edging on the panels are peel off strips.  It’s great to be a bit more prepared for the last minute wedding cards that people always seem to need!!

Flamingo Wedding

Wedding FlamingosHello! Here is my card for the current challenge at Come and Get It.  Our theme this week is Weddings, so it’s a great time to make up a card for wedding season.  Our generous sponsor is Di’s Digistamps.

I was snooping around on the net, and came across this cute wedding couple at The Hungry JPEG. I merged the various elements of the set, then added a “congrats” sentiment to the banner. I sot of mirrored the banner shape when cutting out the image. I used a sheet of double sided DP for the background, cutting strips of the reverse side as a top and bottom border. This card needed a bit of glitz, so I brushed on some Wink of Stella on the veil, added a rhinestone necklace, some silver bows, and matted everything on some silver glitter paper. Love the funky feel of this card with the flamingo couple :)
