Weddings .....

We appear to be walking into the wedding season with the beginning of May.  So I am following. 

My card is a Lili of the Valley image, and I am ashamed to say that this is it's first inking!!  Bad lady ...  I think they are very cute couple.  My bride is slightly non-traditional, as I decided to give her a pale blue gown, and also another first, I have cut an out of frame nestie, following the very easy tutorial from the lovely Rach.  This can be found here

The image is coloured in Copics.  The background papers, which are very neutral, silvery grey, are printed from the Decadent Brocade CD available from Graphicus, on to White Silver Shimmer Card, which gives a lovely sheen  I have just slightly modified the intensity to get differing tones of the same sheet.  This is mounted on to Bazzill Bling card.  No idea what colour - but I think it was out of a Wisteria colour match pack.  Lace and ribbon are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, with punches used for leaves, and also the double edging across the middle.  The sentiment is from Magnolia, which I bought at the NEC.   I have also used Stardust stickles to give a little bling.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Charisma Card Challenge, week 20 - its all about weddings
One Stop Craft Challenge, no. 79 - wedding wishes and DT call
CRAFT Challenge, no. 49, - wedding or birthday

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.



  1. Val, this is absolutely stunning. Absolutely everything about it is lovely - the image, colour, lace, flowers, backing paper, the whole lot is just beautiful. Can you tell I like it, Lol!

    Thanks for the link to Rach. I've always wondered how they do the 'out of frame' bit.

  7. Hi Val

    You have linked this card up to Allsorts challenge, but wonder if it is a mistake as see this card was posted last Wednesday before our challenge was launched ?

    It's a very pretty card though.
