Getting in shape for a Magnolia wedding!

Hi All,

Thank you all for your encouraging comments...I am a little happier with this card, so I think my mojo is feeling a little better....either that or it has taken a little longer to get over the jet lag than I did!!! LOL!!

I just received a lovely parcel of stamped images from a lovely bloggy friend, and this image was among them, I was so delighted as I am still working on those wedding cards, I have done about 10 now, and I recon another 30 to go. The first wedding is in 10 weeks...eeek!!!!

I made a shaped card from this die last year so I thought I would rehash an old idea, the die is "Sizzix- heart w/flowers and vine" I have used some of my new papers that came on the 9 hour flight home with me!! The paper is "momenta - occasions and celebrations"....I was about to cut into a fresh 12"x12" in co-ordinating paper to make the flowers, I stopped myself in time and raided my scrap box instead (honestly I could probably craft for about 3 years solid just using my scraps!!) I have coloured the image and the gems using my "copics" and I have added lots of stickels...........it is a wedding so we need sparkle!!!

This is my entry for:

Magnolia Down Under - polka dots
By The Cute and Girly - something, old, new, borrowed, blue (I have gone for the wedding theme)
Stamptacular Sunday - I do, I do, I do
Tuesday Taggers - all that blooms
Cute Card Thursday - anything but square
The City Crafter - here comes the bride

  17. This is gorgeous Jules, I love how you have left the images white and just given some shading,I think we forget how nice the effect is and don't realize without colouring the white can stand on its own and has a great effect just will a little shading
    Love the shape too, gorgeous!!!
