Dream Valley DT Challenge #88 - Wedding

Good morning! Mahoosive apologies for the lateness of this post, I was so convinced I had scheduled it for Monday that I forgot to check!! Don't you hate it when that kind of thing happens? Or is it just me that it happens to??!

Anyway, welcome to another Challenge at Dream Valley and it's a romantic theme this time - Wedding. My children's friends are all at the age when weddings loom on the horizon, so these cards are becoming increasingly useful - in fact, my card was made with a very special wedding in mind!

Our sponsor is the adorable Lacy Sunshine Stamps and the lucky winner will be able to choose THREE of Heather's cute digi stamps! A fabulous prize!

So what did I do? I made an easel card!

I used a 6 x 6 inch card for the skeleton of the card with the fold at the top, just folding down the top flap to meet the fold. Then I mounted card and paper cut with varying sizes of Nestabilities Labels One and Grand Labels One dies. The pale blue card is Centura Pearl, the dark blue is by Bazzill, and the patterned paper was yet another magazine freebie! I cut a blue doily with the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily Die and distressed the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.

The cute couple (the digi is Waltz it's so sweet!) were coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and I added Waterfall stickles to the Bride's dress and the Groom's buttons. The sparkly organza ribbon is from stash. There is a pocket left behind the image for a label cut with a Whiff of Joy die, mounted onto blue Centura Pearl.

All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts, and the green leaves are made with a Woodware punch. I also added glitter to the flowers. The ones that form the Stopper are offset to continue the line of the flowers in the bottom right corner, which gives room for the Marianne Creatables Butterfly 2 which has pearls on its body.

Phew! Well done if you've read this far, this is quite a long post!

Go and see the beautiful work of my teamies at Dream Valley and be inspired!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
