I Managed a Wedding Card!

Hello peoples! Richard and I are going to a wedding party tomorrow evening - I think this will be the second time since Andrew was born that we are spending a night at home without our children (Andrew's 9!) Can you tell how boring I am LOL???

Anyway, I really struggled with an idea for a wedding card - I've finally come up with something that is fairly decent, but the photo is not showing it off to its best at all (for some reason everything looks skew wiff - its not that bad IRL!!)

The image is a Precious Moments Colouring Page - I've coloured with Promarkers, and added some sparkle with stickles and glitter gel pens. I cut the heart shape out free hand and embossed it in the cuttlebug. The sentiment was produced on the computer and diecut. The flowers look much more gorgeous IRL - they have long stamen with pearls on them - they were from my local craft shop. The papers are digis, one from Summer Driggs Beautimous and the other from Crafters Companion Cute Companions CD. The photo doesn't show but the base card and some of the layers are silver card. And then I've added some lush ribbon, a heart charm and adhesive pearls.

Edited to add - the cuttlebug embossing folder I used for the heart is called Kimmy Luvs

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - the sketch - I hope mine counts as I've added some extras and changed the shape of one of the layers
Lexi's Creations - Emboss It
Bee Crafty - Ribbons and Bows

Well, I just need to make the box for the card now, then try to grab an early night!

Hope to see you again soon.

Love, Andrea xx
