Wedding Day Blues!





I have two cards to make for a couple's wedding, this is the first of them. The man is Scottish and lady is a nurse, that's all the information I got. So I decided to go with a wee bit of subtle tartan and a bit of paper piecing.
Image - Sugar Nellie
Papers - Summer Driggs freebies papers
Embellishments - faux stitching, pearls, punched flower and ribbon, heart die, glitter
Medium - coloured with promarkers and paper pieced.

I would like to enter this into
The Sugar Bowl - followed their sketch and theme
Allsorts - Anything goes
2 Sisters - stitching
Cooking it up with Katie - 3 favourite things (ribbon, pearls, glitter)
Little Darlings - pearls
