wedding love card

hi there monday morning again, how did that happen. I have only made 1 card this weekend, went to the craft show at the trafford centre on saturday with the craft club I have just joined, had a really nice time, and did'nt spend too much, we took 2 classes ,white work embroidery and made a tag book, really pleased with both but had to search the house for my little embroidery hoop.
Anyway the card I made.
sorry not a good photo,too much shadow.
used an image from simply cards and papercraft, printed on to neenah (wish I knew how to put more than  image on a page) coloured with promarkers and spectrum noirs, used xcut die to cut out oval on 1 piece of card went round with martha stewart edge punch, did the same on the bottom piece of card, made a little gusset for the top and bottom of the top piece of card, added some diecut and embossed flowers, doily accents I think to cover up the corners.  Added some pearls,my new marianne butterfly bought at weekend, added some swirls and a peel off sentiment. thanks for looking angxx

bird card

hi there card no 2
again used the free papers from hot off the press and the stamps that came with simply cards and papercraft, the papers are lovely very useable, followed the sketch from totally gorjuss, did some stitching on my machine, thought I needed to add some embelishment but did not know what, remembered I had seen a video on wild orchid crafts to make birds and butterflies, so went and watched it again and had a go, made the bird out of skeleton leaves coated with embossing powder, a bit messy because boy does the powder melt quick on the leaves had to do it twice because the powder kept melting off lol,cut out the shapes and edged them with glitter glue and then had to wait overnight till they dried, needed legs so drew them onto acetate with permenant marker assembled them with hot glue gun,colourd ribbon and lace with old paper distress ink, also distressed the papers and added some script stamp to the edges, not sure I will be making another but who knows angxxx thanks for looking
