A wonderful day .... for a Spring Wedding

Good morning everybody

Well, this time last week I was getting ready for a spring wedding, and our theme at the One Stop Craft Challenge this week is Spring Wedding or Wedding Anniversary.  The wedding I was going to was that of the daughter of my closest friend, who I have known for nearly 40 years.  The weather was brilliant, and everybody was able to enjoy the fabulous grounds of the manor house where the wedding was held.

I decided to use my card to Lucy and David as my DT piece for this challenge.

This is an 8 x 8 card, the purply base was matched up with 29th Market Street paper which I have had forever.  The main images are from the Kanban Jasper set, and I adore them, and use them a lot.  They are coloured with Promarkers.  The side heart border is a Martha Stewart punch, and the corner is a Marianne die.  I have embellished with pearls and a toning silk Prima flower.

The inside of the card is decorated to tone with the outside.  Corners are Marianne dies.  The sentiment panel has some words from John Lennon, which I think really suit the occasion.  It is cut with a memory box die.  The bottom heart panel is only stuck along the bottom edge in order that a gift voucher can be put inside the card.

The box is covered with toning paper and embellished with a silk flower and butterfly, and then the edge was wrapped round with a ribbon to close the box.

And here are a couple of photos from the wedding.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Colour me Creative - Anything Goes (use Copics or Promarkers)
Di's Digi Designs - Show us that bling
Sugar Creek Hollow - Pearls and Swirls
Crafty Catz - Girly Time
Hotshot Crafts - Die Cuts
Inspire Me Fridays - Always Anything Goes 
Polka Doodles - A wedding card with a difference (something old - background paper I have had forever, something new - the corner die inn the card front - something borrowed - some pearls as I did not have any small ones, something blue - the handwriting on the sentiment! I hope it counts)

Pixie Dust Studio - Steampunk - well the clothes are .....
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Whimsy Inspiration - Anything Goes
Mariannes design Diva - Spread your wings - my butterfly is on the box
