This week it is the lovely Hayley's turn to set the challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink and she has set us the challenge of
Love is in the Air
I decided to go for a Wedding Card, and am keeping everything crossed that Hayley thinks this is OK for her theme :-)
Plus I was itching for an excuse to use these gorgeous papers from the Be Mine Collection by Echo Park, and I haven't stamped Bride Nikki up in a little while :-)
I've coloured Nikki with copics and glittered her up with glamour dust then cut her out and layered her up on a die cut by Marianne Creatables. I've used pink Bazzill Tulle under the die cut which is attached to a strip of Grey and Pink Bazzill and punched the pink with a MS border punch, and tied the tulle around a heart charm from my stash. The edges of the papers have been distressed with Tea Rose Distress Ink.
I used my Sizzix flower die to cut the flowers, rolled them up then secured with a dab of Silicon and set a brad in the centre then rolled the edges of the outer leaves back. and set these round a sentiment made up of Paula Pascal and Papermania that has been cut out with my friends circle nesties and edged in Weathered Wood Distress ink.
As I had a bit of paper left over (of the too big to throw away, too small to keep variety!!) I decided to decorate the inside too!!
I used the same border punch as on the front and cut a label using my nesties and inked the edges.
