Our Vintage Affair Monthly Card or Altered Item Challenge

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
This evening sees the next challenge at

Half way through the month so this tells us that this challenge is for 

A card or Altered Item

the theme this time is Weddings

I went with the card and a box card at that

Here is what I created
The base layer is a pretty duck egg blue and I have used some gorgeous lace from Grimsby Crafts.  The papers are some of my favourites from GCD Studios called Ella Blue.  The pearls are in opal and duck egg blue and are created with liquid appliqué.  The image is from a stamp that I was luckily able to snatch when Sue had her clear out as is the frame that I ran through the cuttle bug and then distressed with Tim Holtz ink.  The little doily heart is from the Hobby House as is the little blue rose.
This is a side view showing the edges of the little brown box that this card fits into.  The same lace has been added around the sides.
This is the inside of the card I decorated both sides.
and a close up of the stamped image and it's pretty frame.

Don't forget to hop over and see the stunning creations made by my teamies, some are totally awesome.

I would like to welcome ALL of my new followers and wish them all Luck in the candy draw on the 29th July.  I would also like to say that after this candy I will now be celebrating my 300 follower candy.  However if you would still like to be in with a chance of winning my 200 follower candy it can be found here
