Lili of the Valley wedding card....


I'm on a mission to show you all the cards I've made recently but not managed to post about :-)

This was for my cousin who got married a couple of weeks ago. I love this sweet LOTV image :-)

I've coloured it with my promarkers and added plenty of glitter - of course you can't see any of it here! I'm rubbish with a camera! :-) It's all round the lacy edges of her dress... honest!

I added some flowers and fixed little gems to the centres.

The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You and I cut it out with my nesties. Unfortunately I'd printed it a little bit too big for the nestie and it cut off a little bit of the "W" so I covered it up with my little punched butterflies :-) I added little gems to the "i's" in the sentiment....

Other things I used:
Papers - Background: Dovecraft, Matts: handmade paper
Ribbon - Candy win
Die cut heart - Candy win
Pearls from stash

Simon Says Stamp - Dies to die for
Paperplay - Punches and dies
Creative inspirations - Let's celebrate
CES challenges - Embellish me more (flowers, butterflies, ribbon, gems and pearls)

I also decorated the inside but I forgot to take a photo of it :-( Too late now cos I've given it away!

Before I go my fab Dream Valley teamie, Lin, is having a design team call over at Crafty Cardmakers..... Please pop by and have a look..... If I wasn't absolutely up to my eyeballs with life I'd definitely be trying my luck there! 

Right, I'd better be off. Busy, busy busy! Back again soon :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
