Monochromatic yet colourful....

Morning peeps!!
I have had this wedding card order sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks now. It was on a post it note (...I have the bestest order forms you know!!!!) and I have been waiting for the man who ordered it to get back to me with a colourscheme. I still hadn't heard anything yesterday so I went with a gold and white mono theme.

Out came the vellum. Yup I know its a monkey to stick but I have a creatopia so no problems there!! you just cut what you want, run it through the creatopia and it sticks down beautifully with no adhesive showing through at all!! I love it!!! The flowers are stuck on with glossy accents.
The little seedy gems were stuck in using glossy accents too. I love those super teeny ones along the punched edge, and the gold and glittery vellum went through my SU boho flower punch like a dream. The teeny flowers and leaf fronds are papermania and the bigger frond is martha of course!!! You can just about see the blingy brilliance on this piccy on the brides dress, I dabbed some glossy accents over those too just to make them pop.

Mum rang last night to give me some more details and phew!! the invite has gold on it so yey Lou !!!

I am entering this little cutie in a few challenges....
whimsy challenge-monochromatic
Papertake weekly- Anything goes plus added bling if you fancy!!  - added bling in my little flowers and versamark brilliance to paint with on her dress and flowers.
Truly scrumptious challenges-Bingo - I have used gems, flowers and die cuts.

The cute little tags are my SU jewellery tag punch, I love it. I printed the names and date onto my vellum then punched them out and sewed them to the bow.

So I think thats me for today!! I have the inside of this card to finish off and then on with a baby card and a grandad card, phew!! me busy!!! not too bad though as Mo slept in until 6am and I have a packet of party rings to nibble with my cuppa!!! yey!!!

Huge hugs
Lou xxxxx
