Italian Wedding

Second post today!  You can reach the earlier one by scrolling down or clicking here.

This card is for an order I received from one of the ladies at work - you may remember the 100th birthday card I did for her mother.  Well, this one is for her son for his wedding but to come from grandmama.  And it had to have Italian text and incorporate the bride's family tartan!  Have used Jeanette's sketch again from this week's Sketch Saturday but tweeked it a little (told you that sketch was a keeper).

I have no idea who the stamp is made by - it was one of the first I bought when I started crafting.  Papers are a mix of Making Memories and Papermania, and the family tartan, with Martha Stewart heart border punch, leaf frond punch, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

And I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Creative Cottage - Celebrations
Allsorts = New Beginnings

Thanks for popping in to have a peek.  Hope you are all ok.  Think I am crafted out for today so am going to see if my broadband is behaving itself enough now for me to do my DT commenting duty.

Catch ya's all later

Love your white flowers, a little change and they go well with the roses.
I already have two different Martha Stewart border punches, but I'm not sure I will resist this one very long...

What a beautiful Wedding card Squirrel. I'm sure the happy couple will want to keep this one.

I've had a day off today and all I've achieved is taking stuff to the charity shop and catching up with my favourite blogs. I made the mistake of trying to catch up with the papers in the conservatory. Don't know what happened but I think it's what's called a power nap lol! So I still need to get on with my DT commenting.
