Wedding 1

Worked steadily the last few days in swelling the Macmillan stash box. Made a few specific occasion cards (Easter, Wedding Day etc) rather than my normal 'Do for Anything' (Just for You, Best Wishes) card in the hope that having a wide selection may tempt people to stock up for a few occasions!
The taking of this picture has caused me such angst!

I think my loved little camera may be about to go to the camera heaven in the sky... the colours are not true and there has been a lot of 'bleed' round the edges - this is the most passable pic but still not as sharp as I would have liked!
I used a 'Blossom' embossing folder (from an Oriental set) for the background, simply highlighted and layered image onto another piece of white card and ran some blingy round the edges and on the image itself.

The lace is from my stash, with a few pearls added and a die cut heart with a tiny organza bow.
The flowers were made using Spellbinders dies, popped on a corner die cut and a couple of punched ferny leaves and the inside decorated to match.

Photo looks good to me. I like all that embossing and embellishments. We still have the high winds here. My internet keeps going up and down like a yo yo so have to keep switching between lap top and ipad. hugs mrs A.

Wow Viv - this is just stunning! I adore every little bit of detail you have there, must have taken quite a while to make.

Thanks for sharing your project & creativity with us at Aud Sentiments Viv! This is absolutely beautiful - I love white on white - and with the pale lavender in the image it is lovely! The lace is a gorgeous piece and enhanced with the pearls, the die cut heart and ribbon - makes for wonderful texture & dimension. This is one of the few times I really like the addition of the flowers... minimal, appropriate to your theme and well balanced! Very nicely done!
