I was asked by a very good friend of mine to make a Wedding card for her son and his bride, I was so happy to do this as this particular friend had been very supportive when I was going through some very difficult health issues.
The bride is American hence the spelling of the name Ashley. The colour theme for the Wedding is a Victorian lilac so I tried my best to get as close to this as possible allowing for a little artistic licence.
Keep On Crafting, Bury St Edmunds. The first layer is piece of Anna Marie Designs white card stock coloured with Phill Martin's Cosmic Shimmer Cloud Colour Blending Ink in Frosty Heather.
The next layer is a 200 gsm cardstock embossed using the Craftwell Checkered Arygle embossing folder. I have added a strip of white seam binding ribbon (a whole reel bought for a very good price on Ebay) coloured with the Frosty Heather Cloud Colour.
Natural Accents Bundle, Stamens, Mixed Flower Buds and the large flower came from Hobbycraft, which I came across by chance not long after my friend asked if I would make the card and I thought it would be the perfect colour.
