Wedding Acceptance Card

I've made a Wedding Acceptance card for a family wedding we are attending in Scotland in June, Sophie is a flower girl and the colour theme for the wedding is ivory and red (hearts) and I've echoed this in my acceptance card. I've also shown a sneaky peak of the dress that Sophie will be wearing and the outer lining of the skirt has red & ivory flower petals stitched into the hem, she is so excited and can't wait for June to come around lol! I ran my card base through a CB embossing folder in the Big Shot and did the same with a scalloped circle used for matting. I created the circular sentiment on the PC and added two little red gems and a red heart brad to the centre. This was then mounted onto some red mirri card and attached with 3D pads. I added the gems to the bottom as it looked a bit bare with nothing on it.
I also decorated the inside of the insert with red loveheart paper but forgot to take a piccy and its all sealed in the envelope now to go in the post....doh! TFL :)

Hello Donna!!! Remember me lol?! It's Weesy!!! Today I was at a Stampin' Up! class and was checking out one of the 'attendees' blogs and guess who's name I came across several times... YOURS?!!! It was Alison, as in Ali's Stamping Heaven that I was chatting to and I can't beleive I came across your website from hers :-)))

Wow Donna, your blog is full to the brim with your gorgeous cards. How do you find the time to fit in such creativity... I'm jealous!

So how is the Barber family? I hope you are all keeping well? I see you are coming to Scotland in June for a wedding? What a stunning dress Sophie gets to wear, a proper wee princess she'll be :-)
