A Wedding!!

The time has come for the first family wedding since our move and we are not going to be there to enjoy this celebration. We knew by moving so far away from our family that this would happen but it still doesn't make it easier. So, I didn't come here to blog about my whining, nope I have a wedding card to share with you. This little card is on its way to the special wedding couple.

I used these gorgeous Magnolia stamps with Glitz Design papers and made a joy fold card.

The image is quite big so there wasn't much space to embellish this card but I finished it off with some Prima and Wild Orchid flowers, handmade leaves and some ribbon from my stash. Here is a close up.

For my card I used the challenge and gorgeous inspiration at Magnolia Down Under Challenges - #153 Shabby Chic and would like to enter my card.

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments!


  1. love your card, looks great..a wonderfull image and perfect coloring!


  2. Must be hard for all of you but your card is beautiful and will make the happy couple even happier!!!!

    Hugs, Irene

  3. Aah that card is beautiful!! So nice,I love it. And I know how hard it is! I knew when I moved to Australia for at least a year that I would miss out on a lot of stuff, so I am also missing the wedding of my best friend who is getting married in august. And it´s so hard because you really want to be there! A perfect card for a perfect occasion! Hugs
