A big thank you to all my blogging buddies who sent me cards and wishes for my birthday - my Club team played on the night so after the game we celebrated a 'skin of the teeth' win and the birthday with some cake and cups of tea (well they drank the tea - I had a glass of plonk!).
I bet by now you're all saying 'Not another Wedding Card' - trust me I'm also saying it! I have had so many requests for the same type of card using this LOTV stamp that I now have firmly placed it away in the drawer - am hoping the 'June Wedding' syndrome is nearly at an end!  I have always tried never to make more than one of any design but as these are orders I suppose I can break my cardinal rule a little bit.
Used the usual heavily textured cardstock, brushed over with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, my Grand Nesties which after dusting I edged with Stickles for a bit of bling, the LOTV stamp coloured with Promarkers and some Frosted White Stickles on the bride's dress. 
Inside I printed the sentiment on the PC and again dusted over all the card stock with distress ink. The heart punch formed the base for the prop for the easel and I also decided to decorate the hand made box with a die cut flourish and some silver rings.
All the embellishments/flowers etc are from my stash.
I found a couple of challenges -
ABC - 'W' for Weddings
The Craft Garden - Something Old (LOTV stamp, pearl hearts), Something New (Embossing Folder), Something Borrowed (Heart Punch), Something Blue (Ribbon and Flowers and of course the Distress Ink!)
Prairie Fairy - Weddings

A beautiful card Viv. Like you, I don't like to make a card more than once but when a customer asks then you have to! I am currently making 30 of the same Christams card for my cousin! :o)
