Wedding Carriage

Good morning all!
Is it Thursday already? Crikey!!!!
Time for me to share another Just Inklined creation with you!
As the wedding season is fast approaching,
I thought I'd share a wedding card with you
Here's what I made

I made a White on White, vintage feel card using the beautiful image,
There are lots of gorgeous images for weddings over at 
Just Inklined,, be sure to check them all out!
I do like white on white cards but as the image needs to be coloured,
I added subtle touches of colour using some flexmarkers.

I trimmed the image down & matted it onto a diecut background.
This was made using a Marianne Designs die which I cut
 twice & joined together, covering the join with some seam binding!
The lace border is made using a Martha Stewart border punch.
I used  my favourite, Linen Embossed Cardstock from 
Southfield Stationers for most of this card. 
The image is printed on to Print Perfect card from La Pashe.
There is no colour bleeding when you use your alcohol markers
 which is important on this type of card.

The sentiment is a LOTV stamp, the flowers are from my stash
& the bow is seam binding also from my stash.
Thanks for popping in!

Things With Wings

Hi everyone!
It's time for a brand new challenge over at
Crafting For All Seasons where the theme this time is 
Here's what I created!

I have used a sponsor image Trudi FruitFly Buggmee from
she's so sweet, looks a bit like one of my great nieces.

Here's a closer look!
I coloured her with promarkers & cut out with an oval nestie.
All elements were inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

The kraft card blank is from JellyBean Crafts, the border punch is from Tonic,
 the sentiment from Craftwork Cards, the twine from American Crafts &
 the strawberry charm from Meiflower!
The little seam binding bow is from my stash, I can't  recall where from!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my little card
& I hope you can play along with the challenge.

Quotations at OLLCB

Good morning all.
 It's Monday & it's time for the latest challenge at
Ohh La La Creations
The theme this fortnight is
Here's my card!

I've made an Easel Card using a scalloped square card & an image from the 
Passion for Fashion CD Rom
which is available from the Ohh La La Creations shop here.
As you can see I've gone for a black & white Art Deco type theme too.

I found the quotation using a google search on the internet.
Isn't it just fabulous! I mounted it on some foam tape & used that as 
the stop for the easel section.

I added the image to a scalloped circle & a plain black circle.
Some matting & layering, some black lace, a little bow & some
 Papermania gems from my stash et voila!
I hope you like my card! 
If you'd like some more inspiration, pop on over to 
the challenge blog to see what the talented DT have been up to!
Hope to see you there!
