Wedding wishes # 1

Today, I have a wedding card to share with you.  I had a request from one of my co-worker's for an upcoming wedding her parents are attending. Well you know how much I love to make wedding cards, - all the flowers, pearls, glitter and just overall pretty stuff.

Here is my card:

Not much explaining on this one.  I did use one of my new Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlits #661185 to cut out the corner doily pattern which you can see on my top layer of my card. What a beautiful die cut.  There are 2 others in the set as well. I then layered my die cut piece over a piece of grout grey c/s cut the same size.

I then stamped my sentiment onto some grout grey using versafine smokey grey and then cut it out using a die from one of the MFT die-namic blueprint sets.  From here I built my layers of trailing flowers. 

To finish off I added some pearls and glitter on the flowers using my quickie glue pen and then sprinkling glitter over it.  Very subtle but just adds that little bit of sparkle.

paper - Prima - sunrise sunset, MFT grout grey, bazzill light pink, cougar white
stamp - PTI - propose a toast
ink - versafine - smokey grey
die - Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits # 661185, creative expressions (sue wilson) finishing touches -lace edged leaves, MFT - die-namic blueprint #5
misc- tulle, prima flowers, wild orchid craft flowers, pearls, glitter.

While I was on a role with this card, I did make another which I'm saving for another post.

Thanks for your visit today, have a wonderful weekend!
