This week on Lili's Little Fairies our challenge is to incorporate some pretty ribbon and lace into your design, and we are being sponsored by the Ribbon Girl with a fabulous prize in pink.
I have made a wedding card with the adorable 'I do' image stamped in black Momento to tie in with the printed text that was a freebie by Bev on the LOTV Ideas to Inspire blog a while back. I coloured with my Copics: skin tones with E000, 00, 21 & 02; his hair with E40, 41, & 43; her hair with YG61 & 63; his tux with cool greys; and her gown with R0000, 000, 00 & 21. For the ground shadow I used warm greys and there's a touch of green but I forgot to note the shades.
And here's the card - taken in the bright sunshine in the conservatory where it's finally warm enough to craft, at least during the day. I've avoided too many embellishments as I want the card to be able to go through the post in just a gusseted envelope. The paper is a piece from Nitwits Thimbles Too collection, edges inked with pink petunia Versamagic chalk ink then matted with dust pink textured card. The pale pink ribbon and the lace are from my stash, the corners are cut with an old Squeeze die, and the little roses are from a new Marianne die CR1210 - a bit fiddly to emboss and ink but a great way of using up tiny scraps. The butterfly is punched from the smallest Nellie's Choice set and I couldn't resist adding a touch of diamanté bling!
And here's a couple of blog challenges I can enter with my card: Crafty Catz challenge is to use dies/punches this week - I've used lots of different dies and punched my tiny butterfly. The Incy Wincy challenge is to use something old and something new (rather apt for a wedding card don't you think?) - most of the elements on my card are old from my stash, but the paper and the die to cut the little roses are both new.
