Wedding Day

Yesterday was my friend Shelley's wedding.....this is the card I made...larger than usual on an A5 sized card.
Used a lovely Foerever Friends image coloured with Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Sansador and distress ink round the edges of the Nesties oval....the papers are all Scrapworks Love in Bloom....die cut hearts......stickles.....Dovecraft 'Mr & Mrs' embellishment....and sentiment is Stampin Up.
I'm going to enter the card into the One Stop Craft challenge which this week is 'add some sparkle' doesn't really show on the photo,but there is loads of stickles on the card. The weather was perfect....the wedding was 50s themed....with all the principal players wearing authentic 50s clothes.The wedding dress a bargain £17.50 on Ebay just needing a few alterations....though her hairdresser didn't find doing a 50s 'rolled' style very easy......and did suggest 'you might have been better going to an old ladies hairdresser'!!!!!!.
The groom and their son wore 50s suits....though little un's tank top and tie didn't stay on very long!!! All in all it was a wonderful day....despite the disco [not so very fifties!!] blowing an amp....maybe it just knew it was in the wrong era!!!!!!

Can't believe the bride's dress was only £17.50 ... must be the bargain of the year!
