Life's Special Occasions

A busy day today as this is my second post.
A new challenge starts today over at Corrosive Challenges.  Our theme for this fortnight is:
Life's Special Occasions
Simply create a project celebrating any of the numerous special occasions that we celebrate.

Our sponsor for this challenge is A Day for Daisies and the design team were lucky enough to be able to use images from the sponsor for our inspiration projects.  The prize for the winner is a $12 gift certificate.

I used this gorgeous wedding bells image to create a wedding card.  The image is coloured with promarkers.  I added some glitter to the bells and cut the image out.  For the card itself I cut an aperture using my dies and then created a trellis but cutting little strips of card and weaving them together.  I than attched this to the back of the aperture.  The flowers were all made using punches and I added lots of pearls.  I also punched out some little butterflies.  Kept the colours a lovely soft shade of pink.  I also used some of my peel offs which normally don't see the light of day lol.

I hope you like and I am looking forward to seeing all your creations.  Just pop here to upload your creations.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lisa B - Wedding
Great Impressions - Pastel colours and/or polka dots
Stamping Sensations - Special Occasions
Passion for Promarkers - Cut out your image
Divas By Design - Flowers
Whimsy Stamps - Pretty in pink
