An easel wedding card

Happy Good Friday!

I've been rushing about trying to get s wedding card finished for my daughter to take to a wedding they are going to this weekend.  Her husband Steven is best man so it hasd to fit the "special" bill.  I've made various cards over the last few year for Claire - who is the bride and she always loves her handmade cards so I know it will be well received.

I decided to use this lovely Lili of the Valley stamp, I've used it several times for wedding cards, its so simple that I think it allows you to go a bit overboard with the embellies whereas if the image is fussy I'm inclined to hold back a bit - suppose it depends what sort of card you want really.

I've use the three photos to try and show the card off to its best.  its a really dull day and I just couldn't get a good photo in or outside so hopefully you've got the idea!

What I did....

Stamp and sentiment - lili of the valley
Coloured with - copics and prismacolor pencils
Card - craftwork cards
Papers - prima meadow lark
pearl swirls - personal impressions
Flowers - wild orchid and others
Die cut swirl - memory box
Die cut circles - spell binders
Ribbon - carnmeal cottage
Glitter glue (on veil) - martha stewart silver

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

Lilis little fairies - ribbons and bows
Totally Papercrafts - Bingo (pink, glitter, pearls)
Wags'n Whiskers - say it with flowers
The pretty little ribbon - Dies to die for
4 crafty chicks - flowers

Thats all for me today
See you tomorrow
