Simply Create Too Challenge 14 MIDWAY EXTRA - Wedding

It's time for the Midway Extra part to the current Simply Create Too challenge!  The theme is:


And I'm sharing a card I was asked to make for a Pagan Wedding.  Two of the main colours were white and Cadbury Purple for which I had to buy (just had to!) some ribbon from Meiflower!

I researched some of the symbols and came across the one I've used which represents the Celtic knot which has no beginning or end - the circle of life.  I've used my X Cut fancy dies for all the layered shapes as I wanted something a bit more detailed than a square.

The card is from my stash but originally came from The Paper Mill shop and its a lovely white linen effect perfect for Wedding cards.  I printed the text and added a laced effect to the side of the card as many Pagan Weddings have a binding of the hands theme and also the gowns are brightly coloured and are laced bodices.  Half pearls from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge - there is still time to enter!
