Hi to all and I hope your all having a good day.

I have now finished my sons wedding card and box and would like to show you my results. For the past two days I have been struggling with this wedding card, as it had to be just perfect. Sorry had trouble taking pictures, no matter how I tried I kept getting shadows or too much shine.

In the UK I bought these little creamy white flowers (the ones with the sparkly bit in the middle) and wanted to incorporate them into the design, well trying to get them to stay were I wanted was a nightmare, in the end I had to get the silicon glue out, then pack little objects round them till they set and I had to do the same on the box aggg I hate waiting and these had to be left overnight, but success it worked.

I also sprayed the flowers and paper with pearl glimmer mist and left to dry over night too. I added sparkle to wedding dress and tiara with a silver glitter pen also to the front of the dress and flowers I add tiny gem stones. This is on of Linnie's images and can be found Here

The box is one I had laying around which had green leafs on, I sanded it all down and covered it with white mulberry paper then covered it again in matching wedding paper from K and Co called Elegance and adorned it with the same flowers and pearls, a bigger size pearls as the little ones looked odd.

I have entered the following challenges.
