Hopping Over The Threshold at The Crafting Cafe!

Good morning all you lovely peeps!

This is a first for me!
 I am combining a DT post for La Pashe
a blog hop post for The Crafting Cafe facebook group!

As the theme of the blog hop is "Let's Celebrate",
it occured to me that my card was perfect for both.
 I checked that  it was okay with everyone & it is, so here we go!
The hop goes live at 9am, so if it's early & you've just dropped in 
 you may have to wait a little while if you want to join in with the hop!

If it's already past 9am, you may well have stopped by from  
the lovely Katie's blog if not pop over to Nikki's Blog
& start the hop from there!

I've made a 6"x6" Wedding Card!

The stamp I have used is one of the new range of 
This one is called Over The Threshold & is one of several stamps
suitable for wedding cards! As the wedding season is upon us now,
I know many of us will find these useful!
This card has gone to my sister who's off to a wedding tomorrow!

I fussy cut around  the Happy Couple after colouring with 
a combination of FlexMarkers & Promarkers.
The background was coloured with distress inks.
I had some silvery grey vellum in my stash which I have been itching 
to use so I used it for matting & layering & for the diecut grass & heart.
I also used some fantastic faux silk ribbon from my stash!

I made the circle sentiment myself in my graphics program.
I've included it as a freebie below. 
Please feel free to take it if you like! All I ask is that you don't share. 
Please direct people here to get it instead.

Now if you're hopping you'll want to move on to our lovely Barbara's blog
Enjoy the hop & don't forget to visit La Pashe to check out those
