 Hello everyone,

Hope everyone is well and happy, I am, got my favorite socks, got a new die in the post, got an order for water colouring blue flowers!! those all die cut and water coloured  this to pick up my Daughter in 45 mins from work,and we are having dinner together, wedges sour cream and all the bits that go with it..YUM!! out gall bladder here it comes..

So onto my project for is Saturday afternoon and blowing a gale and raining and I have to go out in it..Holly is hiding under the table nestled on a chair hoping I wont see her..she can stay in..

Wedding day....Greys.

This was a big day of die cutting awhile ago, and when I was in the grey mood, you know how sometimes a colour latches onto you and you are stuck with it for a while..this was one of those days..or weeks as the case maybe..

Then off into the zone and never took photos..the edging was with a fiskars punch..

The card and box came out so nice and with just a tiny hint of creamy yellow with a speckle of blue in the leaves hidden in the background....

I loved doing the layers and as it was going in a box there were no holds barred..
lots and lots of dies and foam squares used here..

The tulle gave me a headache...the sentiment was die cut out 4 times and glued together..

Pearls in place here and there and showing a bit of dimension....

And the set together,,,and the box looked yellowish..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by, I'm off out for dinner and will catch you up tomorow..

Absolutely stunning Chrissy, a wedding day card to be treasured.

Donna Ellis said...

WOWOW, Chrissy! Be still my heart! You certainly have shown Nature at her loveliest by using the textures and layers, rather than vibrant colors. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I wouldn't have thought of using muted, or gray tones, to make flowers, and they certainly are amazing! Both are lovely, but I especially love the 2nd card with the double hearts and fantastic dimension. What a beautiful wedding keepsake that is! huggers, de
