Wedding Day

Time for another challenge over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days and there couldn't be a more suitable theme for today than Wedding! It will be hard to ignore a certain ceremony that is going on today so you might as well join in and make a card to celebrate someone's big day.
 My husband and I (gosh I sound just like the Queen!) actually got married a month after Charles and Diana 30 years ago and I remember us sitting watching their wedding and wishing we had a bit more money than we had at the time to have a more elaborate affair. However given that we are still together and happy thirty years later if I've learned one thing it's the amount you spend on the wedding day definitely isn't the be all and end all!  Anyway I wish Willian and Kate and any other couples tying the knot today all the happiness for the years ahead and now back to my card. I used Jenni the Cardmadfairy's digi image of a wedding cake and mounted it on a card heart which I covered on both sides with lilac paper before I distressed the edges. I folded the front of the card in half so the heart is only attached on one side, which is why I had to cover the back as well. The paper is covered in phrases related to weddings which meant I didn't have to worry about where to add a sentiment! The little sprig of flowers at the bottom is meant to remind you of the bride's bouquet, and I added some sticky pearls in the corners to finish them off. All the DT cards are fabulous please go and visit the challenge blog and if you agree be kind enough to leave a comment.
