Spring wedding!



I was reminded by my lovely friend B that I haven't posted in a while so thought I had better get my act together. I have been creating lots just didn't have the time to spare to post them:( I have my son's 30th birthday party to organise for Friday and I haven't even made his cards yet! Anyway onto my card. This couple are to be married on Saturday and I am hoping the weather picks up for them as its like November here today! Spring weddings are always dicey lol.
As the couple really like their horses I decided to make a horse shoe to frame the image. I cut out the shape, wrapped it with pink crepe paper, twisting as I went along then added loads of flowers, leaves and hearts, stick pins and pearl hearts. This is an a4 size card and it is full of dimension, hope it fits in the envelope lol.
Image - Karens Doodles
Papers - Dovecraft and brown paper from stash
Medium - coloured with promarkers
Embellishments - horse shoe, flowers, hearts, pins, ms leaf punch, crepe paper, gorgeous sparkly ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

What a gorgeous card Pinky, a lively idea to use the horseshoe and such a lovely image. Hope you are getting straight now with your craft room x

DesignerDiva said...

Your card is fabulous Pinky, th horseshoe is pure genius! I'm afraid of A4 cards but you make them look easy!
I've just been looking at your craft room pics again, OMG! I did laugh as I recognise most of your boxes, seems we shopped at the same place for a while lol.
It's turned out a really beautiful light and airy room, I'm still in a box room! You have to get your husband to make you a pen storage unit, he looks to be quite OK with his hands. My BIL made mine but Vicky is selling them on her blog if your husband can't do it. It will make such a difference than opening drawers to find a pen. I'm still in chaos but thats the only bit of me thats sorted!
