Simon Says Winter Love :-)

Oohh we do love our animale eh !! What a fantastic response to our Amimal Antics challenge,,, Brilliant !!
lets hope you like this WINTER LOVE CHALLENGE too :-)

There are lots of possibilities for this challenge ,,, Engagement, Wedding, Anniversary,, Christmas card for partner, or even for your child ,, we do love our children after all :-)

We do have some sad news to share with you today tho ,,, unfortunately Kim is stepping down from the DT. We are all very sorry to see her go ,, as you all know her designs are fantastic and she is a lovely person too. We all wish her the very best of luck and hope she will continue to join us in the challenges :-) x x

Some friends recently asked me to make a card for their son's wedding. The colour scheme for the wedding was burgundy and they wanted the names of the bride and groom on the card.,,, this is what I came up with :-)

This was actually my first easel card and I thought it turned out quite well ,, I had to make a box to put it in as a normal envelope isn't very good ,,, tho if I was going to post one I would just use a padded jiffy type envelope ! :-)

I used a Penny Black Wedding Cake stamp and coloured it with copics and 3D'd it,,, The base card is lovely ivory stardream ,,perfect for special wedding cards I think ! The papers are Papermania and plain burgundy card. I dabbed beige brilliance ink onto a script folder and embossed the burgundy card it does look lovely IRL ! :-)

The names were cut out on my cricut, the flower is prima,, these were sprayed with glimmer mist so they are all shimmery,, for added sparkle I added a horseshoe charm a few dew drops and stickles everywhere :-)
The sentiment is a Punchem from Funky Fairys Papercrafts ,, I love these :-)

Luckily my friends liked it ,,, I haven't spoken to them since the wedding ,, but hope the bride and groom liked it too !! :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving some lucky winner a $25 shopping spree to her Simon Says Stamp Store and she will pay for the shipping too !! Lovely !! :-)
