Just Married!

Good morning. Hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was spent partly at A&E as Jack had an accident at rugby and was very dizzy and disorientated. He had to have a CT scan which showed no damage, I can't begin to explain the relief we felt! He and I had an easy day at home yesterday and are all back to school as normal today.

This is a card I made for a work colleague of Rich's who got married a couple of weeks ago. I don't make many wedding cards but went all out pink and girly for this one...


Supplies:
Image - Henry & Zoe Get Wed! coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Paper - Marianne Design
Flowers, pearls & buttons - stash
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Hobbycraft mini butterfly punch, Spellbinders oval dies, Spellbinders Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass die set (for tag)
