Wedded Bliss

A very good morning to everyone,  I am so fed up with this weather, we've had two days of sunshine over the last 3 weeks and guess what, it's pouring yet again with rain and the sky is a shade just under black.  Arrrgggh!!  I don't think we're getting a summer this year.!!!

Anyway I wanted to show you something a little different from me. It's not Magnolia, it's a sweet image from hAnglar sTangler. My card shape is from my newest acquisition die from Go Kreate, I love it because it gives you a 3" card right up to a 6" one. 

Anyway after cutting out three layers I distressed them with Tim Holtz antique linen, then tea dye and finally brushed corduroy.
For the ornate frame around the image I added a little broken china in places. I'm quite please with the antique/vintage look.

I added some vintage hessian lace and velvet pearl trim. The little metal corner and Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, torn and distressed papers are from K&Co. The little stamp sentiment and die are from Whimsy Stamps, the journaling sentiment is from papermania.

Oh! and before I forget I did something that I never do, I tore my paper!!!! believe me you don't want to know how much I apologised to it before commencing. lol.

That's all from me this morning, but I will be back a little later with another project I'm finishing off.

I hope you all have a wonderful day ahead of you.
