Wedding Card

A wedding card today, which I can now post as I know it has been received.  The wedding colour scheme was purple and white, so I used these colours on my card.  The purple card is pearlised card from Anna Marie Designs.

Lots of dies were used on this card:
Sue Wilson ~ Ornate Pierced Rectangles (NBUS)
Sue Wilson ~ Stitched Lattice Frames (I just used the lattice die from this set)
Sue Wilson ~ Double Pierced Oval
Sue Wilson ~ String Flowers
Memory Box ~ Sofia Heart.

The large purple octagon was attached to a 7" x 7" card blank, almost up to the fold and the card blank was trimmed to cut off the excess white card. The oval is attached with foam pads.  All the white die cuts were snippets, so I'll be sharing my card over in the Playground.

I am joining in the following challenges:
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 244 ~ Use Snippets
 NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) Challenge #7
Allsorts Challenge - Week 378 ~ Use at least two dies
