Long awaited wedding card!!!!!

I cannot believe that i have not posted any cards on my blog since the 1st Jan, rest assured it is not for a lack of card making as i have been busy, i have also experienced quite a few problems with my laptop.

The card i am showing today is one that i have been working on for sometime now and i am pleased with the result.  The card is for a friend of mine to give to her partners brother.  I was given the brief some time ago and ran with the words hot pink!

After lots of searching for images we settled on one from Tiddly Inks, which is my new image/item, i had to print the image and try to remove the vampire teeth and scan back in before finally printing the image for colouring. 

I coloured the image using pro-markers, and made the card up with some pink paper from Colorbok cardstock brights, some white pearlised paper, and some vintage pink papermania vellum paper. 

I hand made the flowers from some die cut sizix cutters, tim holtz alterations elegant flourishes, the leaves came from a friend of mine (Lynn Critchley) which were made using  a cricut machine.  I NEED one!!! LOL! Not that i have anywhere to put it!!!  The flourishes and flowers were decorated using glossy accents and some glitter.  I glued the flowers down with as much silicone as i could and then set to work on a box to fit the card into. 

The card is finally sitting in the corner of my kitchen with the silicone slowly drying, I hope they love the card and the lucky couple have a  great wedding!

I am going to link this to some challenges this evening (cup cake craft challenges being one) but for now my monthly papercraft mag has just dropped through my door, and i hear a cup of tea at my friends calling me before i get my girls from school!!!! monthly challenge - anything goes

  5. You did a beautiful job on this! Love that shimmery paper and those gorgeous flowers!

    By the way thanks for stopping by my blog! You were asking me how my hubs fixed my laptop? He used a program called IObit and it is free. If you just search IObit into google you will see it's the first one on the list. It comes with anti-malware, anti-virus and even a complete system fix. I also downloaded a program called CCleaner to fix my registry. Now my laptop is running much more smoothly! If those don't work, there are other free programs that will find nasty stuff that bogs down your computer like; AVG, Malwarebytes, Super anti spyware and Microsoft Security Essentials which are all free!

    Hope you can get your laptop fixed! :D

    Big Hugz,
