Just Magnolia hAnglar sTanglar challenge

I nearly didn’t have a card for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, I ran out of time then I remembered I had done a wedding commission for Simply Cards magazine and I had paper-pieced the bridal couple.  Okay so there is no stamping on patterned paper but this is as good as it gets lol.


I had to make 6 projects for this commission, so there are another 5 to follow at a later date.  I was so pleased with how the background worked out I really didn’t want to cover it up with Tilda and Edwin, you can’t really see the sunset effect that I managed to achieve sadly.


The embellies are from Wild Orchid Crafts –  hellebore, 25mm rose, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, seam binding and pins.  The little heart charms are from eBay. 
The lace is from The Ribbon Girl
The stamps I used are Loving Bridal Couple and Wedding Background and the sentiments are from the Whiff of Joy Wedding Sentiments set 


The paper is from the Tilda Frosted Blue Green pad, I love this pad – the colours are gorgeous.   The sentiments are both from Whiff of Joy, I love the elegant font Katarina uses for her sentiments.

That’s it from me today, hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  My hubby is starting the garage conversion (I think it’s going to be for my new craft room, he thinks it’s his play room for his model trains – well methinks he ain’t got a chance rofl)


  1. This was a wonderful card.
    As always :-)
    The background paper was perfect; looks like the wallpaper one should wish for in the building a wedding is held.
    Have a nice weekend from rainy Norway.

  2. Lovely colour combination resulting in another fab card.
