Weddings

'Weddings'...... this weeks' CD Sunday Challenge. The weather here would be fabulous for a Wedding. Blue skies and sunshine all the way.

 It's Easter weekend here so 'Kala  Paxchio' everyone. It's a wonderful celebration with something different happening every day of the weekend. Friday begins it all with a bonfire to 'burn' a Judas Iscariot effigy....much like Guy Fawkes in the UK. Then Saturday night sees everyone at church with the service finishing at midnight and candles are lit from one main candle and taken home for good luck.......you're lucky if it does get home without been blown out of course!! Then Sunday is the day of feasting....usually lamb or goat as the main component. Monday in the villages there are usually races for the children and local dancers performing.......a real fun, family day out.

OK back to today's Wedding card. I've chosen a background from Jem's Designs 'Wish upon a Rose'. It's Vintage pink so I felt a vintage bride was needed to complement it. I found a bride and groom in my stash......image design by Carol Smith. I altered the colour so that it co-ordinated with the background. It is in a lovely frame with decoupage flowers added and corners so not much to do to it really. The couple look so much in love and I found a sentiment, again on the 'Wish upon a Rose' CD..... 'True Love' awwwwwww!!!



I added another sentiment from my stash 'Wedding Day Dreams will all come true' On the right hand edge I added a lacey edging with three layers of white card and 'fancy' scissors. I think maybe I should have used cream or beige but hey ho it's done now!!

The card is landscape....125 x 185cms but instead of having the opening at the bottom I've made it at the shorter edge. As you can see there's faux stitching on the left hand side  so it looked obvious to me that was where to put the folded edge.
