The second in the wedding series

Goodness, it sounds like something out of Dallas or Dynasty (okay so I am so showing my age now lol) - here's the second card in the series of four that I am doing for Jill using these stunning, gorgeous, delish Kaiser papers. This card nearly didn't get done tonight, this is the last of the papers that I have till I get my new stocks and clever clogs here knocked a whole glass of orange juice over my desk. I didn't think I could move as quick as I did! The juice caught just under half of the two sheets (leaving me just enough to make the card) and it also went all over my newly finished Magnolia card for the JM challenge on Friday. I am so pleased I was alone up here (the air was rather on the blue side with what I was calling myself I can tell you!). I am NOT going to be remaking the card - not got the time or the heart to be honest - so the card on Friday is going to look rather wrinkled (a bit like me) where I have not managed to flatten the papers down. There's always one - and it's usually me *rolls eyes*!!!

Anyway, on to the card, I have used the Flowersoft and pearls for flowers again, I really do like the effect. I had planned on using the little roses (that are in the corners) in amongst the Flowersoft but they were too big - looked a bit daft having the flowers as big as Willow & Oakley's heads, for sure lol. I've also used my fave layout too - quick and easy and doesn't need much paper thankfully.

Also, I forgot to tell you all - The Hobby House is going to be at the ArtStamps show at Newbury Racecourse next week - so for those of you that are close by, I hope if you're going you will pop across and say hello.

Recipe
Stamp: Whiff of Joy Wedding Carriage
Paper: Kaiser To have and to hold from The Hobby House here and here
Tools: Stampin Up slit punch, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch (perfect for these papers I think), Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Embellishments: Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearls, ribbon from QVC

Thanks for stopping by,

  34. That´s a lovely card Bev! So beautiful with the pearls and flowersoft! So sorry about your juice! I sometimes have a coffee when crafting...I´ll better stop that habit. I´ve heard of a crafter who distresses her cards with Coke, maybe just some accidents, hehe.
