Happy Ever After.....

Hi Crafters,

Time continues to fly by and this is the first chance I have had in between DT posts to share the card I created for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding.

Their wedding theme was white and green with lots of foliage in the decoration and so I thought the 'Lady' Mintay papers would work well for their card.

I fussy cut lots of the flowers and elements from the papers and layered them around the central shaker element which I filled with pearls and green glitter to match the colour theme. The gold hearts and wedding rings were cut from another paper collection.

'Lady' Mintay Paper Pad
Carnation Crafts Die Cut Flowers
Sentiment - Britannia Dies
Sue Wilson Stitched Square Die
Dawn Bibby Menagerie Frame Die

I can't wait to see the official photos of the day. I didn't get many opportunities to take any photos with my phone and it was such a wet, dull and windy day that any snaps I did take didn't come out well - but I'll leave you with one of them cutting the cake in the evening.

Have a great Wednesday!
