Step We Gaily!

Here's a little wedding card I made for one of the ladies I work with!
As she is mature in years, like myself, I thought this bugaboo image was just perfect!
Luckily the lady in question has a sense of humour so I could get a way with it too!

I just love these guys!
I used a Craftworks Scalloped square card blank as the base for my card.
I opted for pink & blue as the colour scheme, I like the softness of the pastels!
I coloured the image with my trusty Promarkers, the cut it out with a scalloped square nestie!
I gave Gus & Stella's glasses a touch of Anita's 3D glaze treatment!
I cut the sentiment out with a scalloped circle nestie & inked round the edges of both with pink!
The blue paper is from Do Crafts & has been in my stash for ever! 
One of those resources that never seems to run out no matter how much you use it!

 I cut the flowers out using a daisy punch & layered them, adding a piece of 
Craftworks Card Candi to the centre of each!
The flourishes were cut using a Mariannes Creatables Die
The stick pin was home made using beads from my stash & a pink padded heart!

I decorated the inside of the card to match! 
I prefer doing this where possible, rather than adding a paper insert 
as I find it gives better balance to the card!
I hope you like it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
