A Royal Wedding

Its a ROYAL WEDDING over at Crafty Cardmakers with the choice of using a red, white & blue theme OR a wedding theme or you can go the whole hog and do a red, white & blue wedding theme!
For this I used a Tilda stamp coloured with promarkers and derwent coloursoft pencil and went with the first option of the red, white & blue theme.
Papers are by Bearly Mine Designs and the blg blue flowers I just got from QVC outlet.  One of the ladies at the craft group in warrington I've just started had a pack on her table so Sarah hot footed it up to QVC to get us the last 2 bags lol!
I've used a couple of tiny butterfly punch outs, one is covering the mistake I made colouring the sleeve in blue when I wanted it white.  Got a bit stuck after I'd put the bottom flowers on and the image so thought "What would Tracy Payne do?" and thought of a swirl so I added that and another couple of flowers and its balanced out OK.  The swirl is a Tim Holtz elegant flourish die cut which I glittered with stickles also glittering the flowers.

So hope you can join in over at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight for a Royal Wedding!

Your Tilda is gorgeous! Fabulous colour work and really pretty design. I have just laid out some papers for a card in the diagonal and I was wondering what to do about the join in the middle. The lace border is perfect. Thank you for the inspiration! Hugs, Lesley

You've rocked this colour combination. I really like the stamp with the big bunch of roses but would have to put a smile on her face......

Well done on you and Sarah blagging those flowers. I haven't been to the Shrewsbury outlet for years but have picked up some right bargains in the past.

Love Mandy xxx
