Mr and Mrs

Hi everyone, I hope that you are all ok - I know there are some areas that have been flooded by the storms we have been having for the past day or two.  We had an intense thunder storm here this morning, but thankfully that has passed now but it is still fairly sticky!

I've been busy this morning with the first of the two commissioned wedding cards.  The request was for this one to be traditional and the customer chose the image.  But since when did I ever stick to a brief.  Here is traditional with a Squirrel twist.

So, what have I used -
Card base done with a Stepper Die bought from the lovely Sarah Wright
Cut from matt silver card
Panels cut from holographic silver heart card (purchased many years ago from Create & Craft)
Image panel and message panel cut from Bristol Board - the heart is an X-Cut die
Image is LOTV Mr and Mrs and coloured with Polychromos pencils
Always & Forever is a Tim Holtz sentiment
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Silver border around heart is from stash
The panel on the back has a large To Have And To Hold sentiment from LOTV with room for the customer to add her own words to the bride and groom

I've entered this in to Sarah's Facebook competition for her customers who bought the die from her

Now to make a start on wedding card number 2, but first - my order from Little Miss Muffet arrived this morning so I think it ought to be time for a "me" play

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

It's gorgeous Squirrel, I love the silver; it's so elegant & beautiful for a wedding card. It's unlike you to use paper flowers too, but they're really pretty (you know i love using them!). Beautiful soft colouring. Love it.

I think it counts as traditional, with a nicely modern squirrel twist. It is a lovely card and I'm sure the customer was pleased as punch!
