Simone & Lee's Wedding Day

Good morning folks.  
Roll on 4pm when I finish for the weekend, that sounds terrible really as I haven't started  work yet given it is only 7.30am and I have just realised I forgot to schedule my post, but it has been a long week for some reason.  Gosh I am thankful I don't work Fridays.

Today starts a new challenge at Crafty-Girls Creations.

Challenge No 7 is Anything Goes

Our sponsor for today's challenge is

My card today was an order from a mate at my slimming world meeting.

Other than cards for personal use or design team samples I do occasionally take orders, mainly from friends and family as I prefer to specialise in personalised cards so when Marlene wanted a mixed race wedding card I was a little nervous mainly because I had not coloured an ethnic image before.

I knew I had seen a wedding digi stamp at Mo's Digital Pencil and she has a substantial multicultural section.  So I headed on over to her website and checked out the image and was pleased to see that the groom would suit for my purposes as my bride was black and my groom was white.  It is a lovely image and I used my copic markers and my copic instructional colouring book for colours for my bride.

My image is called Wedding Couple B.

Once finished I left it for a while and went back to it I was quite pleased with the results.

My die cut flowers and leaves are from Creative Expressions as is the strip for my names.  My frames were cut using my BSC and my embossing is from an A4 embossing folder.

The names were die cut using a free alphabet die from my tattered lace magazines.

I also made a box to go with the card, the insert was produced in serif and I placed some tissue paper inside too.

Marlene said she was thrilled with it much to my delight.
