Midweek Magnolias #24 Wedding

A very good morning all,  It's time for another challenge over at

Our theme for this week is "Weddings"  I've chosen to honour the flower girl as my project.  I  thought it would be nice to make something as a keepsake that could be brought out in later years as a reminder of the wonderful day she took a big part in.

I've used lots of elements on my card and tag so I won't bore you with all the details here but I'll put a list of ingredients at the bottom of my post if you are curious.

I do have to tell you though that this is the first time I've used nothing but pencils as my colouring medium.  They are Derwent softcolour pencils and I love the effect they give.

Anyway do please pop over and take a peek at the wonderful array of projects my dear sweet friends from team A have created for you.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, it's been a very busy week for me so far as I have 3 Dt projects all falling on the same day so I will see you all a little later with the others.
