Off to the USA

Good evening to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  My eldest daughter is off to America on Thursday for a Wedding and has asked me to make a card.  We had a fabulous evening yesterday - a bottle of wine or two joined us in the celebrations and she chose the image she wanted for the card.  She chose the image Wedding Couple from Redunkulous Designs.  The Wedding is in Santa Monica and then they are flying down to Vegas for 5 days  - I am not at all jealous!!!!!!

These images are a joy to work with and I have used my Promarker Pens and Polychrome Pencils to colour this.  The image has then been cut out and mounted on Centura Pearl Card cut with a Spellbinder. I love this card and use it a lot at the moment.  This is the cream card.  I have again used an acetate sleeve for this card and this is covered in fabulous glitter butterflies.  Acetate is from Kanban.  I have used fax silk crush ribbon and cream coloured flowers from my stash plus beaded wired embellishment.

Image showing the inside of the card with matching Spellbinder die cut and gold embossed Wedding Stamp from Lili of the Valley.

A closer view of the wedding couple.  They are so cute.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges: - Ribbon and flowers from my stash are something old.  Image and Spellbinder Cutting Die are something  new.

Another image of the front of the card trying to show the glitter acetate layer which has not photographed well.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post and to look at my card.  I will keep up updated on the wedding party.
