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 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
