Wedding time at Sparkles

Hello again!

For my third and final post this weekend, it's time to tell you about the latest challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Our theme for this month is:


For my DT work this month I took the opportunity to use the gorgeous Tiddly Inks digi image 'You and Me'. This image is so lovely to colour and is one of my very favourite images.

I created this card for my Mum & Dad's 40th Wedding Anniversary. You may recognise the papers from a card I created only a week ago for my expectant friend. I originally bought this paper for all the lovely quotations on it, and then proceeded to pretty much cover them all up except the "Forever in Love" one.

The lace is very old, and came from my grandmother. The antique birdcage is from Scrap Matrix and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Our challenge this month is being sponsored by Di's Digi's who are offering our winner a $10 voucher for their store.

Visit the challenge blog to see what the Design Team have come up with. I hope you'll play along with us this month.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Southern Girls Challenge - Pearls
The Paper Shelter - Pearls & Swirls
Bearly Mine - Pearls & Lace
Creative Card Crew - Swirls & Pearls
Shopping our Stash - Folds or Pleats

Thanks for visiting!
