summer wedding card

Hi there! Well its a lot drier here today - thank goodness - hope it is wherever you are too! Yesterday was such a nightmare - I went to help set up the school summer fair and the 'marquee' thing that had been put up on Thursday night blew down and out onto the road. Luckily there wasn't any traffic on it at the time and nobody was hurt - but all the poles were buckled and snapped! What a nightmare!
Anyway - I'm just back from the summer fair and thankfully the weather was kind to us - we had a reasonable turn out and I'm sure will have made a good amount for the PTA. We took about £75 on our plant and vegetable stall - half of what we took last year but not to be sniffed at! And Shaun brought my girls along and they all had a lovely time!

Anyway - onto my summer wedding card - I've made tis for a number of reasons - one of which is a competition in quick cards - I don't usually put cards up here until after the deadline has passed but I wanted to post this one - so here it is!

I've used an image from humphreys corner called the wedding march and pyramaged it up - the flowers are on a ribbon band from wild orchid crafts - I just love it so much - and I've used a Martha Stewart over the page punch in the background plus a doily.
I followed a sketch from the Friday sketch challenge and chose WOW to qualify for a challenge over at the Whimsy stamps blog. I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
fridaysketchchallenge: Christines sketch
whimsyinspires: White on white
wildorchidchallenge: anything goes
Hope you have a good weekend!
Thanks for amy comments you may leave and for looking!
Big Hugs

  9. Gorgeous card what fabulous roses I like the doily too.
    I was looking for doileys, I have just been to morrisons and in the baking section there are some cup cake wrappers which are lazer cut for two pounds for six , laid flat they look so pretty and could be used as a border or just like a doiley on a card they are so pretty and so intricate as they are lazer cut.
