Golden wedding

I was lucky enough to win the GDT spot for Fussy and Fancy for their Anniversary / Wedding themed challenge and if you've read their GDT post you probably know a lot more about me now. 

For those of you that haven't read the post I work full time as an accountant, am a member of 4 design teams and for one of those I run the Facebook Group for them to help out as well.  I'm a dancer and badminton player (although injured at the moment which helps with crafting time!)

To top it off I now draw digital images which I sell in my shop on Etsy SheepSki Designs and have just started a Facebook group SheepSki Designs Digital Stamps with a challenge.  I have no design team yet so I'm doing all this myself at the moment! 

Soooooo...... onto what I've made for the lovely ladies at Fussy & Fancy

  I've chosen to use Wedding Couple from Aurora Wings for my inspiration card.  The image is just so beautiful Mitzi is so talented and I didn't have time to draw an image :D
I've coloured this image with ProMarkers I find they blend out really well to give a softer look than when I use Copics.  I've done her dress in pale golden colours using Vanilla & Ivory in case you wanted to know.  Scattered around the edges of the image are some pearl dots created with Dovecraft 3D Pearl effects.

Here's a close up of the main flower section.

The heart chip board is from Blue Fern Studios.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.  I also got the lace from Live & Love Crafts that you can see behind the image.

At the bottom of the card is a piece of organza rose trim which can be bought from Wild Orchid Crafts, Live & Love Crafts or The Ribbon Girl.

There are also some tiny delicate pieces of flowered chip board.  They come in longer strips with stems but I cut these down to just the round flowers, they're Dusty Attic chipboard.

There's a resin corner at the to right which you can just see peaking out form under the flowers.  The Mr & Mrs sign is from Scrapiniec which I found at Scrap & Craft.  I've also added a few pearl gems and the tiny heart at the right of the card if from the Blue Fern Studios piece (I didn't want to waste it and it fit in with what I was doing)

Finally the design papers I used were from First Edition and Joy Crafts.  All have been treated with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress ins (Tim Holtz) and they've also been distressed.

Apologies for the long post and if you've dropped off but there's a lot to this card :D
