fairy tale happy ever after....

today i am showing another wedding card ~as pauls (DH) cousin is getting maried at the end of august, we will not be able to make this wedding either ~but it will be held at a wonderful country estate in wiltshire (on the invites it even gives an address of a place to buy stiletto heel protectors!!) so i thought a elegant card was needed.

used the fab sketch on FRIDAY SKETCHERS#115

COLOUR CREATE#51 ~ "ivory,duck egg blue and one other colour" ~extra ~ "shabbychic"

STAMP SOMETHINGS ~ " fairy tale somethings" ~can think of many fairy tales that don`t have a happy ever after wedding!!! ~(all links on my side bar)

used k&co paper, magnolia cake and wording stamps (inside and out), marrianne flower and leaf dies, quickutz butterfly die, dove craft corner stamps, lace and pearls from my stash.

below is the inside of the card

now here again is my die cut plate for my epic6 ~ used so much on saturday ~then a crunching, snapping sound ~the room went quiet......... everyone stood still ...and not only can the plate not be used again but it has broken my machine.. i sat and stared at the scene ....then lewis`s little voice said " don`t worry mummy if you are good, daddy will buy you a new one"..oh if only we could stay 6 years old!!!! LOL

.. i just wonder if i`m a good girl..........

what a darling boy, mines 16 now and not very darling.
Hope you get a new diecutter, I had a sizzix (the little one) I broke it in 6months, big shots are strong, mine is given lots of stick.
Don't we have lots in common, now window dressing....
love your wedding card, great image, colours and lovely detail.
