Tilda Wedding Card

Good afternoon everyone and what another gorgeous day it is.  I hope it will last as I'm off on my hols next week - even if it isn't it'll be nice to get away.

My card today is for a colleagues wedding which takes place today and we are going to the evening do.  I thought I would get away from the traditional white wedding card and get up to date a bit.  I just love this Tilda stamp which I have coloured with copics (hair and skin) and the remainder I've used Tim Holtz distress ink pads which I'm just getting into and I'm very pleased with the result.  I got the inspiration from a Magnolia Ink Magazine.  The sentiment is by Funstamps and the border is a Martha Stewart punch.  I used the hearts punched out from the border to decorate the top left hand corner.  The red rose I made using Brenda's fantastic tutorial the smaller roses were in my stash which I inked with the Tim Holtz distress inkpad (Tattered Rose). The leaves are die cut .  The background is a Pink Petticoat download - Damask. Ribbon and gems from stash. 

I decided to make a box for the card as it's a bit bulky for an envelope.  I've decorated it with wedding bells cut from the Cricut Wedding cartridge, computer generated names which I then cut and embossed using my nesties.  All the distressing was done with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Victoria Velvet.

Hope you like it!  Bye for now - Linda x
