Love Me Do
oo that picture is a bit fuzzy - but hopefully you can get the idea and I wanted to show the inside of the card where I've added a piece of matching paper and a die cut oval to write on.
This is one of those cards that has been in the making for some time - so long I had forgotten I had the Wee stamps bridal image already coloured up, and unfortunately the Copic shades have faded - especially the lavender grey shades I used for his tux. As my pens are in the sideboard with boxes and chairs piled up in front of the door I can't do any touching up. Hopefully though it's ok, especially as there's lots of white on the card.
Here's a picture head on so you can see the pretty ivy leaf die cut embellishments from another of my new dies from Marianne Design, CR1253. They were a pain to cut out, worked ok on some shop bought printed paper but not cutting very well on my smooth white, mind you I had the same problem with the oval mat, CR1204 so guess it's the paper I'm using. I persevered as they are so pretty, and with the stamped text, punched butterflies with tiny gem bodies, and a touch of Stardust sparkle I'm quite pleased with the end result. There's enough interest to make it pretty but flat enough to fit a normal envie and go through the post!
The Created with Love challenge is an anything goes theme so I will enter my card with them, and the Anything Goes challenge is for the same. At Totally Gorjuss the theme is something Sweet - I think the image is sweet so will enter with them, although I do have something else in mind to do as well, now that the postman has been!
