At long, long last....



I've finally made a card - I've been busy decorating and away on my hols so this is the first card I have made in ages!! It's a wedding card for Carlyann (sweet 'n' crafty) who is getting married to her best friend Rob this Saturday - hope you both have a fantastic day to remember!!! I've had this image from Cuddly Bubbly for a while but never gotten around to using it until now - I just think it is so sweet!! When I bought it I planned to use it for an anniversary card but it is equally well suited to a wedding card I think!


I know Carlyann loves pink so I decided to go with a pink and cream colour scheme. As it's a wedding card I decided to really go for piling on the embellishments (well at least by my standards!). I've used some lovely lace and ribbons from Hobbycraft, flowers from my local garden centre and pearl pin and charm from my stash. Also added a bit of sparkle to the image and flowers with some stickles!!

Although I only originally intended to enter this in the Charisma Cardz wedding challenge, it also seems to fit a lot of other challenges too so here goes:

Charisma cardz - something with a tail
Wild Orchid challenge - lovely lace
Crafty Creations - wedding or Anniversary
The Crafty Pad - Ribbons & flowers
By the Cute & Girly - August - Animal antics
O.S.A.A.T - Use a little pink
Challenge up your life - Celebrations
& Paperplay challenges - Anything goes
Hope you all have a good afternoon - we have a storm brewing here, just heard some thunder and it is getting darker and darker....
