I'm Getting Married In The Morning....

Well actually, no I'm not! I did that a long time ago! lol
The song just came to me when I began to write this post so I thought I'd make it my title!
Okay, so you've probably guessed by now, 
I have a Wedding Card to share with you today!

I used a scalloped square card blank as the base for my card!
The Image is from a collaboration kit at Stitchy Bear Stamps!
I got this free when I spent over a certain amount!
I didn't expect it to be very exciting but when I had a look through, 
I was pleasantly surprised! There's lots of lovely stuff in there!
The paper I have used is from my stash & has been in there for a long time! 
I decided to use this one as the bride is fond of poppies!
The plain paper is not quite as vibrant as it looks in the photos!
The layout is from my sketch folder.
I coloured up the image with promarkers, cut out with a nestie then inked 
around the edge with a promarker before adding lots of 
Diamond Sparkles to the edge & to the image!

The flowers are from Sweetpeapolly's Crafty Things & the leaves
are punched out using my woodware leaf punch.

The sentiment was made on my pc & treated in the same way as the image.
I added a home made posh pin & a little ribbon bow

I don't know why, but I didn't take a close up pic of the image 
so I apologise for that but if you click on the pics, they should enlarge for you!
I added a few little gems just to finish it off!
As you can just about see I've decorated the inside of the card
to match!

Because the flowers made it difficult to fit the card in an envelope,
I made a little box for it! 
I lined the box with tissue paper, added a little matching tag & 
a little flower detail to the top!
Thank you so much for looking!
I hope you like it!
