A card for a special wedding...

Hi Girls...  

Well, this post is scheduled so hopefully I'll still be in France getting some warmth (fingers crossed)...  and enjoying the delights of the Dordogne with my lovely other half and daughter Emma...

But I had to let you see this wedding card.... I made it for my fabulous blogging friend Christine's daughter... who was married on Saturday, so I'm safe to blog it now..

I used Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls - Brett and Brenda Get Married for the image... then used pearlescent cardstock and dotty glittered vellum for the front (it's such a shame that I couldn't get the camera to pick up the sparkles enough...they look better on the sideways shot above).  I coloured them with my copics...  then added a few little hearts that are actually waste from a circular die that has hearts as part of the pattern.  The word die is from Simon Says Stamp and is one of their own.  I had to finish it off with a lovely satin bow... and some tiny gems mixed in the the claret rose bouquet!  Then plenty of glitter, and it was done.

Hope you like it...  I'd love for you to leave a comment if you do...  it means so much to hear feedback from fellow bloggers..

I'm home mid-week - so I'll be back commenting soon.....  I always hate missing anything (think it's called nosey!) so generally spend hours looking through posts I've missed.. but I'm not going to even TRY to comment on them all.

Big hugs to all
Christine xx
