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.
