Wedding Season

I had a wonderful afternoon yesterday, crafting away with no interuptions...it was heaven. I had a quick wizz round the gallery on SCS for some inspiration and found a very simple but elegant card here using the Mr & Mrs set (Together Forever for those across the water). I actually made two of these, one with Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon and the other using the Basic Grey and silver Basic Grey Opaline pearls. They're both gorgeous, even if I say so myself, so Jakes teacher will be getting this one now! lol The patterend paper is an Anna Griffin one I picked up in Hobbycraft the other day. Not sure which one it is but it's perfect for weddings don't you think? The card base by the way is Sahara Sand - it's lovely with the pearlescent card, I only wish they did an ink pad to go with it. I found a box of Silver Mirri card in my cupboard I'd forgotten I had. Again the perfect combination with these colours - gorgeous!
I also made a few other cards but can't share just yet as they're for people who have Birthdays and other events going on. I'll post later in the week though.
So not bad eh? From one post in two weeks to two in two days! lol
tfl and see you real soon.
