Blue Wedding

Thank you for all your comments and opinions on my last wedding card. I truly appreciate them. I have another Wedding Card today. This is another of the reasons why I was so busy lately ... another request but this time they wanted a super big wedding card with touches of blue !! I don't like doing very large cards, but the request came from my friend and it was very important for her as well.. ... 

so I gave it my best efforts and this is what I came up with.

I am doing wet embossing again today, I loved this technique so much that I wanted to do it again, but this time I used black embossing powder and another flourish stamp from the Inkadinkadoo stamp set... this one is slightly larger. I also embossed the Lili of the Valley stamp .. love the touch of the raised embossing. I coloured my image with promarkers, the hearts and leaves are Marianne Creatables dies. Corners and rings near sentiment are peel offs.

A close-up of my gorgeous flowers which came all the way from Australia. .. and lucky me I won these ...

and all these as well ... all in one candy which I won from Cheryl last month... yay so exciting :) so many lovely goodies to play with. 

I am entering my card in these challenges today.

Sometimes it's hard to know what to put on large cards to fill the space...I like making them but not as orders, prefer just working to my own wishes!

You've created an absolutely gorgeous card here though Dora, I think you've really done your friend proud xx

Hi Dora, what a lovely card. Great image and wonderfully coloured.

I also have a friend who asks for big cards - I find it very difficult - that big a space is quite scary!
