The Wedding Card

One of my cousins got married yesterday and despite managing to make cards for other family members in plenty of time, I left the one from us to the last moment, hence the poor photos as I had to take them early yesterday morning before it was properly light!

I wanted to make a card that was a bit different so it sort of opened out like a church. All the papers are from Funky Hand - I Do wordbook download and I've added a faux stitch and also liquid pearls dotted around the edge. The card is held together with a big bow and the bunting across the front is continued inside.

The images are from Squidgi Digi (Lisa you have one talented daughter!) after I'd seen one of the images on Lisa's blog and KNEW they would be perfect for Jane and Phil's Wedding card as they are into their VW camper vans in a big way (wait until you see the Wedding photos!) I've used Promarkers, glossy accents and crystal stickles for colouring.

The congratulations sentiment stamp was a magazine freebie from ages ago and I've personalised the number plates!

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Colour Create: Pink (it is there - just not a good photo!), Brown, Cream and White
Dutch Dare Challenges: Recipe: 1 ribbon, 2 images, 3 papers, 4 embellishments (I'm using the 4 bunting banners for this)
