Wedding Day Wishes

I've made another new year resolution craft-wise which is 'use it or lose it'. Yesterday I spent quite some time just sorting through paper pads and made 3 piles - definitely, maybe, and won't use. I know we crafters tend to hoard the tiniest bits of paper, ribbon etc 'just in case' but I must admit to feeling much happier after discarding the 'won't use' pile and am much more likely to make use of the 'maybe' pile as well as making a little space for some new goodies!!

For this wedding card I've used Memory Box 'Twirling Vine Frame' die with some ribbon twirled around it, then I added flowers made with Cheery Lynn 'Miniature Rose' die and a Dovecraft punch. The base card, Sylvia Zet wedding bears topper, sentiment, heart charm and pearls (the flower centres) are all from the Hobby House.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
The Hobby House challenge 'Ribbons'
Ready-Teddy-Go challenge 'New beginnings'
My Mums Craft Shop challenge 'Love' (my 2nd entry)
Oldie But Goodie challenge 'New beginnings' (ribbon and dies are over 6 months old)
My Craft Creations challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)
That Craft Place challenge 'Charming'
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'week 106 use snippets' (I used snippets to die-cut & punch flowers)
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Blooms and pearls'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Teddy bears' (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and for all your lovely comments, I really do appreciate your company.

A totally gorgeous card Andrea.
I do LOVE Sylvias designs :)
The embellishments are perfect and someone will be delighted to receive this.

I do also enjoy a good clear out and do exactly the same..bin, maybe and keep. It also reminds me what stash I do have tucked away!

Big hugs

Hi Kanda, just saw your fab card over at the Snippets Playground hilites. Well done! Zipped over to enjoy your blog & became your newest follower. Hope you'll find time to visit me as well. Love the coloring on your bears. Looks so much like fur. The image is so very pretty against the white & lovely flowers too. I also liked your backdrop that you used for your photo. Most effective. See ya in the Playground, and TFS
