Wedded Bliss for my lil' Sis!

Oops! Forgot to share the wedding card I made for my lil' sis' wedding (which was 11th June!) I was just clearing my memory card down, and realised I hadn't blogged the wedding card, so here it is!

The wedding colours were silver and plum/burgundy, and this was the closest I could manage. It's a 6"x6" scalloped card blank easel card.
The image is from Bugaboo, and is called Kid's View Our Wedding, (love these, so cute!) and is coloured with Promarkers.

The stopper/base panel was made on the computer, using 2 circle sentiments from Crafts 4U and I added their names and the date of the wedding. The ink smudged a bit when I inked up the edges, but I think I managed to get away with it............?! I added some gems, flourishes and a beautiful handmade flower courtesy of my fellow DT member at The Crafty Pad.....the lovely Ms Leesa!

The DP is actually a Doodlebug Xmas one, (although being blue and purple striped, you'd never know!) I did lots of cutting (guillotine and nesties,) matting and layering, added a ribbon & bow, some square gems and 2 pearl pins.

Not a hugely traditional wedding card, but one I'm sure they will appreciate :)

I guess I should offer it up to a couple of challenges:

Thanks for popping by!
