Can't help falling in love!

Hi crafters,
This is my Wedding Anniversary card for hubby-we celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss on Monday! Can't believe it's been that long! Our first dance was to Elvis as I am a big fan, so when I saw this stencil recently at Port Sunlight, I had to have it!!
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but thanks to our last cardmaking workshop, when we played with distress inks, I knew what to do!
I inked the stencil with Antique Linen and Dusty Concord, then stamped a swirl around the edges and embossed it with some holographic embossing powder. Bit different but I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
I added some music notes and ribbon, embossed the background and printed out some words from the song we danced to lol.
I'd like to enter this card in the 'Anything Goes' challenge at Crafting From The Heart.
I hope hubby likes it!
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Little sis card

Hi crafters,
This is a card I made for my sister's birthday and I've used one of my favourite girly stamps, Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella.
I've used some lotv and Basic Grey papers and paper pieced the dresses to match!
I've used some plain white flowers and added some punched flowers to the centres with a pearl. I added glossy accent to their wine glasses and added some blusher with chalk- still can't use promarkers to give rosy cheeks!  A couple of polka dot buttons, a charm and pearls finished off the card.
I'd like to enter this card in the creativecardcrew challenge which is 'Girly'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs, Karen xx

Cute Welsh Wedding

Hi crafters,
I made this wedding card for a friend this week and used a fold that I learnt at my workshop ages ago and I haven't used it for ages! Definitely going to use it again though now I've found the instructions!
I used a LOTV stamp and coloured it with my promarkers.  I used various embossing folders and added a matching ribbon, glitter and flowers, of course!
I added a sentiment with the name of the couple getting married as well as the wedding date. You can just about see it as it was really difficult to take a photo of the card because of all the folds!
I'd like to enter this card in the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is 'so sentimental'.
Thanks for looking,
Hugs Karen xx
