Anyhow, Friday is Polka Doodles day and the theme chosen by Emma is "Weddings" . . . which if I have to be honest, I do struggle with . . . but then again, practice makes perfect I suppose.
Papers, image & rose embellies: A Double Sprinkle of Kraft" CD
Ribbon: from my stash
Diecuts: Marianne Design
Kraft card: Stampin Up
I have used the NEW "A Double Sprinkle of Kraft" CD for the image, papers and the majority of embellies on my card. The image has been framed and then I have used the roses embellishment sheet as a backing paper (because I can!), cut into 4 and then layered onto Kraft card. An additional layer of backing paper underneath, scalloped using my SU punch and then layered onto more kraft card.
I then used a Marianne Design Creatables die to cut my swirls (vines) and then decorated them with rose buds (from embellishment sheet). The sentiment was stamped several times so that I could add the hearts to it (for added drama!) but unfortunately I can't remember who made it. I have added a ribbon veil and handcut top hat to the owls to make them look more "wedding - e"!
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - theme "use a freebie" - well the CD was my freebie . . . thanks Nix x
Papertake Weekly - add dimension to your card
Well better get back to "cracking the whip" or they will have downed their tools !!!
