Wedding Card

A wedding card for my nephew and his new bride Kelly.  A bit of an experiment.....using the A Happy Heart set.  The text was printed on the computer and trimmed to fit the panel.

Hope you like it.

Keep smiling.....Ann

Bloomin' with Beauty

The smaller blue and pink cards were cased from Andrea Walford a Canadian SU demonstrator whom I thank.  These look lovely in real life and again just need the addition of a sentiment to finish them off.

I experimented with the wonderful words set, using the 'thankyou' as the flower stem; I was happy with the finished look.  The flower head is stamped three times in basic black, snipped out, and layered giving a 3D effect using dimensions.  It really does work well.

Hope you like it.
Keep smiling......Ann
