Happily Ever After - Again

Happy Friday everyone! It's Linda here.  If you're in the UK I hope you're looking forward to a lovely long 3 day weekend, so glad I no longer have to work bank holidays like a few years back.

Today I'm showing a wedding card that I made at the request of my daughter's friend, using Tiddly Inks' Happily Ever After ...and yes I know I've used this a few times now, but I actually don't have many 'wedding' or couple stamps and this stamp is on of my favourite images ever.

I used some lovely Pion Papers from the Flower Frame collection. I also paper pieced the brides Dress. All papers were edged with Distress Ink and then hand stitched. I coloured the stamp with distress inks (apart from a couple of Copics on the paper pieced dress), all the colours used and several more pics and all details can be found on my blog here.
 I finished her dress with a glue pen and some glamour dust to simulate sequins and beads.

I mounted the couple on a couple of Pierced Oval frames and slipped a couple of Heart Doily die cuts behind it. Can you spot the little love bird charm nestling beneath the flowers at the top right? I used one of the Fairy Tale Dreams sentiments and the matching die.

I decorated the inside with more of the same papers, the piece with the flower frame makes a lovely place to write a message.

Items used from the store:

Well that's all from me today, enjoy your weekend and I'll be back next Friday with some more inspiration to share :) xx
