Fabulous Friday - Wedding days

Hi everyone.  Yay, it's Friday!  Happy Easter to one and all.

We have a nice long weekend here, so no school for Emily, and as you know Shannon is away in Spain.

Even Andy gets today and Monday off, so a nice chill weekend.  We may go out for the day tomorrow and have a nice roast dinner on Sunday.

Anyhows, on to today's post.  It's inspiration week over at Polkadoodles for Week 2 of our Use a Die challenge.  Now that means most of you could go along an enter our challenge!

There is a fabulous prize for this fortnight's challenge - a copy of the gorgeous Octavia Collection.

Andy's newphew is getting married later in the year and I thought I would get organized and get a Wedding card made ahead of time.  We unfortunately won't be able to make the actual wedding, but we have offered them a place here to stay if they fancy visiting Canada ;-)

I have used a fabulous pre-coloured image from the wonderful Cherryblossom Lane Collection.

The die I have used behind the image and for the inside is a Spellbinders Pierced Oval Dies.  All the edges of all the layers were inked up with CTMH Sorbet.

My card is a Z Fold card and I added the oval panel to the front.  For the inside, I couldn't resist adding the same panels and a little rose to the message panel.

And as you can see from my next shot, I have decoupaged the Bride and Groom to add some more interest, aren't they sweet.

I did cut these a little small again, just 2.5" high - so my eyes were hurting after cutting out the teeny pieces!

I do love how it turned out though.

So, now it's your turn to go along and enter the Polkadoodles challenge Use a Die. You have until Noon GMT, Friday 10 April.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

  16. Wow! What a charming card! I thought the structure of it was so clever and it works perfectly with the images you chose. I like how you've framed them so perfectly with the oval and how there's a second oval underneath it when the card is opened. I like how you've given it a romantic vintage look with all of the brown inking and the floral patterned paper you included is simply lovely! Really wonderful work and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
