To the Bride & Groom


Last saturday was spent at our Cousins' wedding in Las Vegas. It was a fabulous affair and we had a wonderful time. The project I'm sharing with you today is the wedding card I made for them and is also my DT card for this week's challenge over on I Love Promarkers. This week the challenge is to include hat pins or charms on your projects and my lovely crafting pal Karen sent me some really pretty beaded pins, which she made herself, and were just perfect to use on this very special card - thanks so much Hun. 
I used the lovely romantic Lili of the Valley stamp and coloured the image with Promarkers. It's very nearly a White on White (WoW) card as I created a multilayered background using embossing folders and dies to create interesting textures. I used various Spellbinders and Marianne's dies and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The paper roses have been in my stash for a while and I added a little Stardust Stickles to sparkle them up a bit, also adding the Stickles lightly over the veil and dress on the image and tiny touches on the flowers. I've also added some Glossy Accents on a few areas to give some dimension. You can just see the two beaded pins peeking out from under the roses in the bottom right.
I'll try and add a few pix of the wedding before this posting goes live so you can see for yourselves how much fun we all had.
Let's see your creations using hat pins or charms, leave a link on the ILPMs blog for a chance to win this week's prize, which is sponsored by Karen - enter for a chance to win some of her gorgeous beaded hatpins for yourself - you'd be crazy not to !
