Wedding Day!

When I saw the Fussy and Fancy Sketch for their latest Challenge,  I immediately thought it was perfect for a Wedding Card that I was about to make. It really is a 'Fabulous Sketch' and I loved working with it.

I didn't have die cut that shape but liked it so drew something similar with square and circular templates! All those geometry lessons at Junior School paid off LOL. I dusted edges with 'Spun Sugar' Distress Inks. 

The Papers are from Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose Collection' and are perfect for wedding card. The lace, ribbon, pearls, horseshoe charm are from stash. Gorgeous flower is from Bunny Zoe's. The Sentiments were made on computer and mounted on Nellie Snellen Die Cuts. 

The stamp is one I got a while back as I thought it would be good for both Weddings and Anniversaries. It's one from Wild Rose Studio Stamp Set called appropriately 'Wedding Bells'. Coloured with Promarkers Cool Greys 1, 2, 3 and 4, Blossom, Rose Pink, Meadow Green, Apple. Initially the bells were just grey but I thought they needed some pizzazz so used some Star Dust Stickles on them.

Hope the weather is sunny where you are! Dull here in Manchester at the moment!

My daughter and her boyfriend have just come back from Scotland and they had good weather on Saturday and enjoyed a lovely walk around Loch Lomond. Then they went to the Trossachs on Sunday but it rained heavily. What a shame it didn't hold out. Stunning scenery from the photos I have seen!

Thanks for all your lovely comments.  I will be celebrating my 1st Year Blogging on 30th September so am sorting some nice Candy with Christmas in mind! Will probably do draw from beginning/mid September.

Take Care
Love Sue xxx
