My pics are a little dark again, I'm sorry... don't know why, I've undoubtedly fiddled with some settings on the camera, lol. I've brightened them up with Photoshop but that has washed some of the detail out, never mind, sigh
I love this image, After the Vows, from Tiddly Inks.
I coloured with Copics, adding some Prismacolor shading and Ice Stickles to the bride's dress... and a layer of Ice White Viva Pearls to the veil - hard to see in the pic I admit
The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft, I cut the top with a Spellbinders Borderbilities die (A2 Scalloped Borders 1 I think - I've got three different sets and only labelled two of them) The mat behind the patterned paper is actually a textured brown/black card, very nice IRL
Similar problem with the straight scalloped border on the bottom... I'm pretty sure it's a Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders die :-)
The baker's twine at the top actually came on a gift I received a couple of years ago, I squirrel away everything like that, lol. I cut the little tags with the happy couple's names printed on and tied them on - I love personalising cards :-)
The "Congratulations" is a Kaisercraft stamp, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, it's nice and straight... courtesy of my lovely stamping platform, what a difference that thing has made - I used to avoid stamping now? woohoo!!
I finished the inside of the card along the same lines as the outside. Lovely straight stamping... you guessed it, don't know the name of the stamp set, lol
That's it for my card, I'd like to enter into the following challenges:
As You Like It Favourite: Dies or Stencils, and Why... I prefer dies, because they're a quick and easy way to add a bit of pizazz - as opposed to the messy fun-ness of stencils :-)
Die Cut Divas Love
Daring Cardmakers Recycle It - the baker's twine came from a gift I received

It's my lovely grandtwins birthday on Thursday... they're 6, already! I am busy making birthday cards for them and decorating their cakes, yup two cakes... no getting away with the shared cake any more, lol. The party is not until Saturday so I have a few days yet, and they've both chosen pretty straightforward cakes... it's just having two, large, fresh cakes to be ready for the same day does involve a bit of logistic juggling so there's not much time to do much else.
Until next time, Happy Crafting, Donna
