WEDDING DAY

Hi all, today I have a card to share with you that is a little different to my normal makes, I have made a Wedding card using Hunkydory Die Cuts.
Once a friend of mine knew that I was crafting again they asked if I would make a Wedding card for them, fortunately I had been to The Range the week before and bought a bumper pack of Hunkydory Die Cuts with cards I thought that one of the sheets would be perfect for the occasion
I used an 8 x 8 white scalloped card blank, I added the central image, a white bow, pearls, sentiment and butterflies.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:



Many thanks for visiting

I had decided to close this blog down for good but my lovely DT teams have asked me to take a break instead.
I cannot believe the changes that have taken place this last year or since I started blogging, I do know that at the moment I am unable to find my creativity I know my frequent visitors and my friends will understand and I hope to see you all soon
