Wedding Congratulations!

Hello Everyone

Hope you all had a lovely weekend - we had a busy one as it was my brother's wedding yesterday at Lympne Castle near Hythe in Kent. Here are a few photos from the day:-

Anyway back to the crafting and of course I had to make a card for the happy couple - in fact I actually made two as I made them a gift card as well for the money we gave them as their present. So first of all here is the gift card:-

and here is Paul & Annie's wedding card (and the box I made for it)

You can't really tell from the photo but the shoes have glossy accents on them and the dress underskirt and roses in the bouquet and headress all have added Stickles Glitter on them.

For some reason it took me ages to make the wedding card - I didn't quite come together quite as easily as I thought it would! And on both cards I've used images from Lilie of the Valley (quite apt as Paul's daughter is called Lilly!!)

I hope they like them both and I hope you like them too!

As I am actually on holiday today I'm off for a swim and then I'm spending the rest of the day in Crafty Corner.

Catch up with you all soon
