Happily Ever After


Hi Peeps! I hope you've had a good day. I had the most wonderful icecream today. It was a new flavor by Ben &Jerry's called "Mission To Marzipan" . Yummo! In a waffle cone too. So I was in a good mood to create something cheerful. :-)
Todays card was such fun to make. I made a few mistakes but then used them to create an even better creation. My recipe is as follows:

DPs assorted from my stash
Image Lili Of The Valley
Colors Graphitint pencils
Pearls Recollections
Flowers one handmade with papers and silk petals, the others by Recollections
Stitching Machine done
Scalloped edge Borderabilities

Here is a frontal view of the card:


And a close up of the sweet couple.....



This is the handmade flower and pearly/stitchy area. The small flower at the center of the large bloom and beside it is not handmade.

And the bottom detail...


Well I hope its been worth your stop over to see! I'm really pleased with how it came out.I love these muted colors. They work so well for a wedding card, don't they?
I am entering it in the folowing challenges:
Paper Sundaes Handmade flowers
Creative Craft Challenges Here comes the Bride
Thanks for coming by and taking the time to leave some love. It's much appreciated. :-)
