Ding Dong Bellls

Good morning to you all! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! We are half way through with out dog sitting and so far so good.  Harry our cat is keeping them both in order.

Today sees a new Challenge at Hobbycutz and it is Team 1's turn so that means me!  Now the title of my post may lead you to think of Christmas bells but no its Wedding Bells - our theme this week is Wedding!  Here is my card:

I have used the image Wedding Dreamer which is from one of our sponsor's this week Digi Stamps 4 Joy. She has been coloured with Copics. I cut the image out with SB Grand Nestie Oval and edged it with a Gold Krylon Pen.  The image was then mounted on some gold embossed foil card which had been cut with SB Grand Nestie Ovals One.  I used a Hobbycutz laser heart which I first painted with Martha Stewart Satin Acrylic then added some Frantage in Chunky White and Shabby White and then some Bedazzles in Jazz.  I finished by randomly sticking some gems and pearls on it. There are some fabulous lasercuts that Kobie has over at her store here. I used a MS PATP for the edges of the card which is made with Centura Pearl.  The backing paper is a gold embossed vellum and I used some very old peel offs to edge it.  The flowers are a mix of Kaisercraft and Wild Orchid Crafts. The spacer behind the heart on the ribbon I also covered with Frantage I originally got the spacer from E Bay.  Ribbon, heart and dove are from The Ribbon Girl.

Here is another view:

We have two sponsors this week Digi Stamps 4 Joy and Limited Run.  Please go over to the Hobbycutz Challenge to see what the rest of the team have made.  Remember we are now a weekly challenge!
