Lili's White Wedding

Hello bloggers and happy weekend to you all, the sun is shining here I hope it is where you are too. To those of you that are off to Harrogate this weekend - I'm jealous - I have to work!

Today I want to share with you a card that I have made, inspired by the wedding invitations that I am making for my nephew.

I've used an adorable little stamp from LOTV and followed a sketch created by the great Bev Rochester for their challenge this week. I'm always happy with my cards after I've followed one of Bev's sketches, they kind of create themselves!
The sentiment is from LOTV too and I'm ashamed to say this is the first outing it has had. I have used a flower punch to make the little white flowers, a Magnolia swirl die and my round nesties to cut out the circles. The three textures were made using Cuttlebug embossing folders and apart from a few skicky pearls, scraps of ribbon and two sheets of white paper thats all this card consists of. Cheap!!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges
LOTV -  Bev's Sketch
Wild Orchid - Dieing To Punch It Out
Charisma Cardz  - To Die For
Ladybugs Crafts Ink - WOW
Paper Play  - Embossing
Bling It On  - Anything Goes (2nd entry)

Thank you for looking and to those that do for commenting.
Have a lovely weekend
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

Ooh Laurie, this is scrumptious! like icing on a cake! I love the different embossing but sticking with the white. Works so well Love the little flowers and you have coloured the image beautifully! I like the idea of the calendar sentiment too, You can put date on and it is nice memento of the day. Perfect!
