It's a very excited post from me today, as I'm thrilled to announce that I have been invited to join the DT at Sparkles Monthly!! There's a new challenge just starting:
IF YOU MARRY IN JUNE
so we'd like to see something for a Wedding, Engagement or Anniversary.
I did have a minor panic when I first found out the theme as I hardly ever make wedding cards but then I remembered this Makey Bakey Mouse stamp that I bought ages ago in a sale. The papers are some I bought when I first started making cards, 'Exquisite' collection by Papermania - does anyone else remember these??
So here's my card:
I saw this card shape on Pinterest, I think it is called a stepped easel. I just adapted the measurements to suit the craftwork card bases I wanted to use. Here's the side view, along with a hint of late evening sunshine, so you can see the shape a bit better:
Here's the Happy Couple, don't they look cute!! Love the pearl trim, even though it was a right pain to glue down evenly!!
I also used:
Memento Rich Cocoa ink and promarkers
Dies: Nesties, MB Lavish Branch and Simon Says stamp string of Hearts
Prima Flowers and Pearls from my stash
Ribbon, lace and pearl string from The Art of Craft
I hope you can find the time to visit the main Sparkles Monthly blog and join this month's challenge. Just to tempt you even more, our sponsor this month is the fabulous Bugaboo who are giving 7 digi images to the lucky winner!!
