Die Cut Dreams - Challenge #88 - Wedding

Well, another Monday rolls around and that means time for another challenge at Die Cut Dreams.  Firstly though, let me say a huge big thank you to all those who entered our last challenge.  Please stop by the Die Cut Dreams challenge blog and see if you were one of our lucky winners.  (Remember, all our winners are hand picked - no Random Org here!!!!)

So, onto my creation for the next challenge which is:
The prize this time is a Spotlight Guest Designer spot for challenge #90 (23rd May)
So without further ado here is the card I made for this challenge:
I purchased the card as a pack of two (one cream and one white, with envelopes) from my good friend Lynne's new Online Craft Store - Crafts 4 You.  They are 85p for the pack and they are really good quality.  Why not pop along and have a browse, I am sure you will find something you want need! (LOL)
I have had this stamp for ages and just don't get much chance to use it - so - out it came!  I have coloured the man's suit with pearlescent chalk and there are a few highlights on the wedding dress (although you can bearly see them - they are there!)  Then I chalked around the edges so that it wasn't too stark!  I added some beautiful silk flowers and some pearls on gold stems.  The two corners are from a DCWV chipboard accessory pack which matches the Linen Closet papers. 
That scroll is from the same set.  The brads are American Crafts pearl brads from Hobbycraft and the Congratulations stamp I have again had for ages.
So there you have it folks - my Wedding Card.  I hope you like it.  Remember to stop by the rest of the DT (links at the top of the page) and leave them some love on their fabulous creations - I know they all appreciate those comments.

    Glad to hear your ankle is better. I seem to be walking a lot better this morning although its still painful and I feel fragile on it. I need to teach myself to walk again properly too, that might help ! Hope you manage to stay upright back at work.

    Take care,
