Going to the Chapel

Evening Folks,
Here again with another late post but busy, busy, busy again today.  It has also been a hot day here as well.  Hubby and the daughters have all gone out so got a peaceful night.  

A friend of my daughters asked me if I could make her a wedding card for some friends of hers.  I don't very often make wedding cards so was happy to oblige.  Here is what I came up with.

Excuse the quality of the photo.  Wasn't easy today getting a good photo particularly as the card is very white.  
I used my Spellbinders doily die to cut out the centre panel which was then mounted onto some foiled acetate with a rose design on it.  I embossed some white card with my dotty embossing folder and added this to the four corners creating a panel around the die cut out.  This was all then matted onto silver card.  I used another die to cut out the four silver corners.  Around the aperture I created I added some daisy ribbon.  I made the large flower at the bottom and added this on some feathers.  Some little flowers, gems and punched out butterflies finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think.  Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and hope you pop by again soon.
