Wedding card!

Here is a wedding card that I was asked to make for a friend as her daughter is getting married on Saturday. The same day as my big 4 0. She wanted quite a large card so this is A4 size.The hearts were cut on my friends cricut mashine. Love those funky hearts.

I am not that comfortable with making big cards I always think they look to bare.

Sketch Saturday Challenge!

There is a sketch this week and I couldn't resist it. Image was kindly sent to me by Gina so I don't know what its called but it's so cute! Well the school is shut again tomarrow so I guess the kids will be hogging the computer again. Maybe I will get some crafting done.

2 in 1! Papertake weekly & Colour Create

Challenge #1 for Colour create was to use Green, Brown & Pink with the addition of a butterfly if you want. And the Challenge over on Papertake weeky is Hearts and Flowers. So this fits both challenges. I don't normally combine challenges and this was quite by accident.
Image is Penpal form funky kits coloured with copic markers, Flowers are die cut by a friend. Swirl from Gina. Ribbon and butterfly gems papermania.
