Moving Along With the Time Challenge. . . . . . . .And 100 Not Out!!!

Good morning everyone. How's it hanging? Okey dokey I hope?

Well, thanks to Babs and Cara I have reached the dizzy heights of 101 followers. . . . . . .hurrah!!! Welcome to you both and thank you for joining in the fun!!!
I have a Paddle Prize to send so keep your eyes out on the next post for further information.

Now, today's card is my DT card for this weeks MAWTT challenge, hosted by Gail and the theme is "To the happy couple" Just to clarify guys, I am on the design teams for MAWTT and House of Cards and not entering their challenges.
Hope you can join in as it would be lovely to see some of you talented folk enter.

Fortunately, I had the exact card already made for Julie and Andy's wedding and here it is. I tried various angles for the lighting to try and capture the mica but I think I was fighting a losing battle with the top photo lol!!!

I kept the colour theme to the wedding colours (I knew it was ivory and pale pink involved) and I used the Cygnus Gemini again, as per the evening acceptance card, to tie it all together. It was quite tricksy to line it up to form a square border on a single sheet of card but I like how it turned out. John's gorgeous rose bud stamp, covered in a lovely champagne coloured mica, encircles the centrepiece spot on. And, you just knew I had to get a Bitty Blossom or 3 in on the act lol!!!

Ivory card 
Sue Wilson Cygnus Gemini die
Sissix Square dies
X-cut Circle die
SB Bitty Blossoms
SB Jewelled Swirls and Accents
SB Blossom Three
John Lockwood Rose Bud Elements stamp
Champagne Mica
CE bling heart
Spun Sugar DI (all pink card is actually ivory coloured with DI)
Cosmic Shimmer pale lilac PVA Pearls (come out pale pink)
Computer generated sentiment

It was one of those rare moments I stand back from a card and think "yup, that's just what I wanted!" rather than "eeeee, that'll do" lol!!!

I didn't photograph the box that housed it as I left it quite plain with a little pink satin ribbon.

By all accounts, the happy couple loved it. Haven't had time to catch up with them yet and to see the photos.

Had a lovely belated birthday day out yesterday with Nesta, taking in a couple of garden centres, followed by lunch at once of our favourite Indian restaurants, where we were joined by John for a munch. Fun, food and frivolity!!! what every day should involve!

Thank you again for all of your wonderful comments. . . . . . and Patricia, I probably would have attracted less stares if I had grown a beard to cover the spots hahaha!!! (that Conchita thingy on Eurovision has made it fashionable now lol!!)

Hope you can join in the challenge over at MAWTT but please pop over and see what my team mates have created this week.

Enjoy the rest of your week and don't forget to check out my next post for details about my Paddle Prize.

  5. This is so beautiful Ang such lovely soft colours. Glad you have now managed a birthday celebration. Love from Jackie xx

  6. Wow Ang, this is smackgobbingly breathtaking!! I could just curl up beside this card on the couch and watch the fire burn in the fireplace. OK, so I don't have a fireplace and Mr J would probably be confused, but I think you get the point!! This is the elite of wedding cards my dear friend! Cameras are completely uncooperative when it comes to shimmer, silly things! have a lovely day. hugs :)

  10. Hi Spotty oops I mean Ang!!,
    Glad you are feeling much better and this card is absolutely beautiful. I love the colours and was admiring the flowers, then realised it was one of the old dies that I have. That's the trouble we automatically go for the new dies.

  11. Woo hoo! Congrats on passing the 100 mark Happy Belated Birthday too Who says we can't have more than one celebration! I live your card. And to see Itty Bitty Blossoms too Now I've (sort of) cracked making them - still struggling on the very tiny ones and a supply of Liddl card to make boxes I will definitely be trying more cards with dimension I love the colours you have used and the layout as you say it's perfect

  12. Ohhh this is amazing, what a stunning creation. I find that with really light coloured cards if you use a dark background for your photo the camera picks up the light better xx Love Hazelxx

  13. This is a stunning card Ang, I love the way you have used the Cygnus die to create the frame. Everything on this card is so neat, mine never mturn out like that, you really are very talented.
    Blessings - Deb C xx

  14. Beautiful Mrs D and I can see the shimmer from the mica on the top photo and it looks fab xx not surprised the happy couple love it xx now can I please ask how you managed to get a computer generated sentiment to curve?? xx GailT xx
