HIMCR Challenge # 155 - Wedding

Happy Saturday everyone! It's time for our next challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room!

Hiding in My Craft Room Challenge # 155
Wedding Theme

Our sponsor this week is the Paper Shelter.
They have a prize of a $20 gift certificate to their store.

And here is my project using their already coloured in image called Happy Couple.

I used a brick wall embossing folder from Sizzix. The I cut the arched window with a die from Marianne Creatables. I went over the brick wall and the arch with Momento Desert Sand ink.
I punched out a few flowers, leaves and butterflies and assembled them all on the card.

I used the Happy Couple image from The Paper Shelter on the inside of my card.  I added a couple of fancy corners.  These are part of the Spellbinders - Samantha Walker collection called Lace Hearts. I added a couple of butterflies to finish it off.

Here you can see the image in more detail.  I printed it and cut it at 3".  I also added a little bling to her veil with my Clear Star Gelly Roll pen.  You just can't have a bride without bling! :-)
On the other side, I cut an extra arch to finish the opening nicely and stamped a sentiment from a GinaK stamp set duo.

Just wanted to let you know where I got the inspiration for my card this week.  I was looking through my wedding photo album and saw this photo and immediately knew what my next wedding card was going to look like.  It worked too :-)  I love it when an idea that forms in my head looks good when put on paper :-)  This photo was taken during our photo session at Rhodes Park in Johannesburg, South Africa.  I can't believe this was 28 and half years ago!
I wonder, my crafting friends, where is your inspiration going to come from?  Well, where ever it may be, I hope that you will make a wedding project and link it up to our challenge and join in the fun this week at Hiding in My Craft Room.  Remember the wonderful prize this week is a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Shelter store.  They really do have the most beautiful images and some of them are already coloured in which saves time when making your projects :-)
Thank you for visiting my blog today and all the bloggie love you have left me :-)
Till next time,
Happy Crafting!
