These fabulous photos are courtesy of Adam from embrace life photography and once again I've lost a significant part of an evening just browsing his site - those wedding photos are magnificent.
My card this week is for a Wedding!!! I made it for my nephew, Paul, and his partner, Leona. They are getting married on Wednesday 23rd March. It's going to be a wonderful day for them as they marry, but it will be particularly tough for Paul as his mum, Tracey, won't be there to help them celebrate. But Tracey will be there in spirit, she wouldn't want them to dwell on the past - but to focus on their future together. So here it is.
I've kept it quite clean and simple. The backing paper is by Pink Petticoat and is layered onto a lovely green mirri card (not easily seen in this photo, but you can see the colour in the detail shot below). I wanted a fun image and remembered this "love bug" by Pink Petticoat. I printed it onto smooth white card and then coloured it with Promarkers. I couldn't make up my mind which die set to use, but finally settled on Labels 4 - an elegant shape. While in the die I shaded the image with Distress ink. For a bit of sparkle I traced over the string and words with a green Sakura Stardust pen. And that's it!

Before I go, sorry I wasn't able to get to get around to all those who entered the challenge last week - you may know from my earlier posts that it's been a tough couple of weeks. However, I will get around to see all the entries this week - after all - they will be using my favourite colours!! That's all for today, but do come back tomorrow as I will have a card or three to share!
