Mr and Mrs...

Well, we did it! The wedding was incredible - definitely the best day of my life. I grinned from start to finish and savoured every moment of it. Here's a wee picture (we haven't got our professional ones yet, but lots of people took their cameras and passed photos on to us).

That's my mum and dad in the second photo, by the way! The honeymoon was brilliant too. I dragged David away from Disney and Universal for a wee visit to Michael's, where I bought a couple of Ranger goodies for mum which were discounted, and raided the dollar bins for myself. Got some ribbons and stamps, and they had awesome little pots of flocking in every colour under the sun - four for a dollar! Bargain! Never used it before though, so I put it to use on the card I made today for some challenges. Here you go!

The digi is from the lovely collection at Pink Cat Studio, which I discovered thanks to one of the challenges being sponsored by the site. Isn't it brilliant? It reminds me of American Beauty (which I watched on the way to America on the plane). Plus, it's just so cute!

That last picture has a couple of the flocked little hearts - they look really cute. I used the pink on the sentiment too and I'm not so sure about the result. I think it looks better when the colour underneath matches the colour of the flocking. Lesson learned for next time then!

Well, here's the rundown:

Digi: Pink Cat Studio (Lily & Billy laying in hearts)
Coloured with Promarkers (Ruby, Crimson, Rose Pink, Amethyst for the hearts, Cocoa, Pastel Beige, Blush, Lime Green for Lily, and Terracotta, Satin, Duck Egg and Ice Grey 3 for Billy)
Studio G flocking
Font is another freebie - 'Musa Ornata' from
Papers from the Best of Kim and Company Too pack
Fake stitching with a wee pink pencil!
The hearts were just cut out of card and coloured with Ruby and Rose Pink Promarkers

I am entering this into three challenges this week! They are:
