Wedding card

Looking at this photo it looks as if the bird cage and Spellbinder scalloped circles are bronze - I can assure you that they are silver! lol

I've made this card for a friend's daughter who gets married next month. The bride to be asked me to make cards for her wedding group - best man, usher, maid of honour, two bridesmaids, two flower girls and a page boy - and then I made this one for them. I've just had a message from her to say that she loves the cards. I didn't want to post any of those because I didn't want to ask if I could have permission, she might not want them on any blogs until after the wedding. They all have the base mat which is an embossed panel on 'pale lemon butter' card and silver card. The bridesmaids will have pale butter lemon dresses hence that colour for the cards.The embossed panel is different for male cards and female cards. I've really enjoyed making them, although I was quite dubious about taking it on at first. I've not been crafting very much at all since Eric's death. After initially saying a tentative 'yes' I rang the bride to be back and said a definite 'yes' hoping that it would give me something to focus on. It certainly did and I've enjoyed being in my craft room again.

A Joanna Sheen card blank as usual, lemon card and silver card from Hobbycraft. The embossed panel is made with a Crafters Companion embossalicious folder and the heart is cut with a Memory Box die. The other die cuts are all Spellbinders. The image is from Crafters Companion SWALK range and is coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment is LOTV. The pearls are from Joanna Sheen. The edges of the image and the sentiment are given a faint colour with Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade.
