1 Card, 4 Challenges


Hi girls. By now the weekend seems so far away. I hope you had a great time and have settled into the weekly routine. What happened to the sunshine and dry weather - gone, gone, gone. Oh well I have your visit to cheer me up.
I made this card to enter into 4 challenges (I think that's a record for me). Truly Scrumptious had the theme "Golden Oldie" where we were to use one of our older stamps, Crafty Creations wanted something with a "Wedding or Anniversary" theme, Creative Inspirations gave us a recipe to use 5 flowers, 3 papers and 1 ribbon and finally Simon Says... had the theme "Sing it Baby" where we had to build in a song. The first three are easily satisfied with this card and I hope that it suits the last challenge by evoking the sentiments of two songs, both called "The Wedding Song", one by Bob Dylan, the other by Julie Rogers.
The image is Lili of the Valley's "Wedding Carriage" coloured using my Copic Ciaos. I got this stamp when it first came out and have loved it ever since. The three papers are both sides of an unknown double sided paper and a pearlised cream paper I have embossed using a Cuttlebug "Divine Swirl" folder to give texture. I also used peach card as a mount. The flowers are from Wild Orchid.
I enjoyed making this card so I hope you like it. It would be much appreciated if you could find a minute to leave me a comment to let me know what you think of it. I value what you have to say.
Thanks for calling in. Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.

Hugs & Kisses,
