Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Wedding or Anniversary

It's Vicky's turn to set the theme for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, and she has chosen:

'Wedding or Anniversary'

I decided to make a wedding card, using an adorable Lili of the Valley image that I've been itching to use ever since I received it from my lovely friend Pauline. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then cut it out using my Nesties. I kept the background really simple using my 'Swiss Dots' and 'D'Vine Swirls' Cuttlebug folders (available here at the Secret Crafter). The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, and the ribbon is from my stash.

 

You can see the fabulous cards by my DT buddies, including our newest member Tracie, over on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

Hiya Helen, gorgeous card. You did a brilliant job with this image - I wasn't happy with my first effort. Great colour and layout.
