Wedding card

For my card today I decided to try a totally different style and to be quite honest I wasn't sure how to make it. I started off with something I'd seen on the internet called a 'Joy' card, but I also wanted to make a window style to use my new die. So it was a case of making things up as I went along!!

The Background papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and the image is a LOTV die-cut. The dies I used are all Cheery Lynn - FRM141 for the window, B117 for the leafy flourishes and DL112 for the butterfly. The paper flowers were from my stash.

Okay - so as a first attempt I was quite pleased, but I think I would make a few adjustments to the design next time.








I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Crafty Pad challenge 'More Than One Fold'
Cheery Lynn Designs challenge 'Wedding / Anniversary'
Bearly Mine challenges 'Anything Goes'
Love To Create challenge 'Anything Goes'
