Sunshiney Days.......

We've had some fantastic weather the past few days here, really warm and sunny........ and what have I been doing?  Some packing and lots of crafting ha ha ha.....

My colleague at work is having her wedding reception next week - it's her second wedding anniversary but as she married an Aussie, it's only now that his family is able to come over for "the wedding".  So this is the card I made for them.  The message inside reads "In celebration of your marriage and anniversary" to cover both occassions.

The photo's of this card didn't come out too well - the distressing on the edges looks a bit "odd" in the piccies but in real life it was a lot more subtle.............

The papers are K&Co (I love K&Co papers) - these are double sided so one 12x12 sheet of card was all that I needed for this card. Sentiment is from the foam set from my hubbie long time ago (2nd airing this week) and I've mounted it with foam tape to give height.

The image is LOTV coloured with Promarkers and I've distress inked the edges.  Ribbon is from my stash as are the lovely large pearls.  The edge of the matt under the image has been punched with a Stampin' Up edger punch.

I used scraps of the paper to make some flowers - I used a 5 petal flower, curled the edges of the petals with my bone folder and used Pinflair glue gel to give height.  The leaves again are punched from scraps of the matt card, then I added these fabulous large pearls to the centre.  These have a lovely lustre finish to them but the camera is not picking this up very well.

I finished this off by making a matching envelobox using my new Crafters Companion Envelopbox and Boxer additions to my Ultimate Pro.  The matt on the envelope has been punched with a beautiful Glasgow Rose corner punch I found at the back of a drawer - shamefully I had forgotten all about it - so packing has it's good points too lol.
