Wedded Bliss :-)

There's a blog candy with a twist over on the Crafty Goings On Challenge. If you make a card using a download image you can enter a draw to win a set of 72 copic ciao marker pens !! Well, I just have to enter, along with over 400 others, but as they say you have to be in it to win it so ,,, am keeping my fingers crossed :-) The download I chose to use is Dottie and George get married, aren't they cute :-)
I followed Becky's lovely sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge My new thing is the download, I just bought the lovely 'Love and Marriage' set from Charmed Crafts.
I am also entering this for the Charisma Cardz Challenge which is 'favourite things' well my favourite thing is ribbon and organza ribbon in particular :-)
The image was coloured with copics, love em ! her veil and trim were then shimmered using artquest interference paints, it looks lovely in real life. Dotty's necklace and earrings are freshwater pearls, you know the mis-shapen type !! ha ha I deliberately mis-shaped them using perfect pearls :-)) The corners and squares were made using my nesties. The sentiment is from the Stamping Up sentiment set.

Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated :-) SO LEAVE ME ONE !! ha ha
