LotV wedding card meets SSW

Hi, guys! Sorry I haven't been around a lot lately, I am having a Grand Tidy Up of the WHOLE HOUSE and it's taking forever! Honestly, the amount of JUNK one collects over 25 years is astonishing! Thank goodness I can listen to my iPod and dance around!

However, I've made time to make this card for my daughter's friend who's getting married next month. Her colour scheme is green, so I used papers from the DCWV 'Mariposa' stack, which are lovely!

The image is LotV, of course, coloured with Promarkers, and I stickled parts of her dress, and also around the edge of the image. I used a Martha Stewart Hearts punch as a background for the green ribbon (from Hobbycrafts). The flowers are Wild Orchid, mostly, and the leaves were cut with a Magnolia die.

Here's the inside, the wheel-shapes were cut with a MS Deep edger punch - an idea I got from a card by Bev Rochester on the Lili of the Valley 'Inspiration' section. I could spend hours browsing all the wonderful cards shown there by their exceptional DT!!

The sketch is another cracker from Sweet Sketch Wednesday whose challenge I'm entering.

Well, that's about it, I'm going to have to get back to the grindstone - next stop the kitchen cupboards! Wish me luck, chaps, I'm going in!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Baby Pink; Cool Grey 3, 4, 5;Chestnut, Henna; Caramel, Cocoa, Burnt Sienna; Grass, Forest Green; Pink Carnation, Fuschia Pink; Pastel Beige
