It's September.
This time last year I was getting ready for my youngest daughter's wedding.
We had an amazing time.
The wedding was on the Thursday, and on the Friday we all moved into a little cottage, next door to the village hall. We decorated the hall and marquees ready for the blessing and merriment on Saturday.
Then had a hung-over clean up on Sunday afternoon ;-)
It was perfect.

Oh, did you come here for the card :-)
Here it is ...

I die-cut my panel and then stamped the sentiment, embossing it with gold powder. IRL the embossing is really pretty.
Then I stamped the blooms and leaves in distress oxides. I LOVE how beautifully these inks stamp.
Finally I added a few gold sequins.
I really like how this turned out. A modern card for a modern couple.

Hi Caroline, what wonderful, vivid colours you've used for the flowers and leaves. The Oxide inks are terrific whether used with water or simply stamped, aren't they? I love the beautiful scalloped and stitched matte you've used. It is the perfect touch, along with the gold heat embossing and gold sequins. A lovely card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

Caroline sounds like you had a pretty good celebration. Best wishes to your daughter and new hubby. What a great "modern" take on the wedding card. Love the colourful blooms and the gold embossing and I be IRL it's even more awesome.
