Goin' to the chapel...

and were gonna get married, goin' to the chapel and were gonna get married, gee I really love you and were gonna get married, goin' to the chapel of love!
Okay does that not bring back memories from the Dixie Cups! Hehe! That song just popped into my head as I was thinking about writing this post.

So let me introduce to you Mr & Mrs Hitchedafellabella! How's that for a name!

Okay, going to toot my own horn- I just love this card! This image was colored over a year ago, I think it was Feb/10 when Paula came over to Linda's for a visit one saturday, and I'm just now getting around to putting it into a card.

I coloured it using prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol.  The gorgeous frame work around the image was my new S/binder Rectangle Fleur de Lis.  Isn't it gorgeous? Now it looks black, but it is actually dark grey.
The white paper behind the image has been embossed already, and looks kind of like wrought iron, so thought it worked perfectly with this s/binder die.
Finishing touches - lots of glitter for the bride, a prima rose and some white satin ribbon (another fabricland purchase).

I think I might need to make a few more of these!

Don't forget about our friday challenge - anything POLKA DOTS!!

Thanks for stopping by,
