I get to go to a wedding!

Hi Guys,

I haven't been to a wedding for about 18 months so am really looking fwd to going to Dave & Trish's tomorrow. It is cocktail dress so a fun excuse to get glammed up (or as glammed as I can). Also a good excuse for a pretty card :-)

I saw a pretty wedding card on Marelle's blog and decided to CASE it, as it was so lovely.

Here is my CASE:

I stuck to the main idea only I changed from 'Sahara Sand' to 'Crumb Cake', which I daubed with 'Champagne Mist' shimmer paint. If you've been popping by this blog lately you'll see that I am a fan of this stuff!

Here is a close-up of the shimmery effect:

I had recently bought a  set of stamps from PTI and thought it looked sufficiently 'weddingy'. I used it for main panel which is cut from SU's lovely 'Shimmery White' CS and stamped in 'Crumb Cake'. The sentiment is from SU's 'Teeny Tiny Sentiments', a great 'go to' set, and is stamped in 'Rich Razzleberry'. I added some non-SU pearls and popped it up on dimensionals (didn't realise the pearls were so crooked til I saw it here LOL). The 'Rich Razzleberry' layer is scored on my Scor-pal. The edging is punched from more 'Shimmery White' CS with the scallop edge punch. The ribbon is 'Rich Razzleberry' satin, just beautiful ribbon, and it is finished with a 'Vintage Brad'. I loved how the brad is nearly identical in colour to the 'Crumb Cake' stamping. I just hope the Bride likes it. They are having a wishing well so there is no gift to wrap prettily.

I hope you have a great weekend. I'm sure I will as I now have a beautiful 5 days off, yippee!!!!
