Flashback Friday 11.0 - First Wedding Card

Hi peeps.
Just a quick post this one.  I have been watching with interest the challenges at Flashback Friday and every time I see a new one I think to myself - I must go back and look to see if I have a card that fits this challenge but sadly I never seem to get the time to do it.  Well, not today - today I have had a bit more time and have actually gone back and looked through my blog - wow, what an experience that was.
Looking back I think I used to follow the sketches too literally and my cards reflect that I think.
So, anyway the theme for challenge 11.0 is "First Wedding Card".  I don't think this is the first wedding card I ever made but it is the first one I blogged so here it is!!

I made this in August 2009 and you can see the original post here.
I entered it into a couple of challenges at the time and I think it was one of the first digital images I used.  The image is from Pollycraft and I thought it was so sweet.  The papers were from a Crafter's Companion CD - I think it was the Occasions CD and I printed it off in purple tones.
These days I would have matted the papers before I used them and would have also matted the main image - isn't it funny how your work changes over time without you really noticing.
I have enjoyed looking back at older cards and will certainly be entering at Flashback Friday again!
Bye for now.
