Nice Day for a White Wedding

Well, now that Billy Idol is running through my head, a workmate is getting married on January 4.  I've blogged about her before here.  To cut a long story short, Anthea lost the use of her legs in a horse-riding accident about 7 years ago.  Last year, she represented New Zealand at the Paralympics as an equestrian.  She really is amazing and won't let her disability stop her from doing pretty much anything.  Here's a card I made to send her. I'm also entering this card into the Less is More challenge which is to choose a past challenge.  I chose Week 87  Love & Marriage.




This card is heavily influenced by the beautiful card made by Sandy Mathis for a recent Paper Players challenge.  I stamped the wedding dress from Love & Laughter in Versamark and white-embossed it before cutting it out.  I also white-embossed the sentiment from Border Banter.  The heart was stamped in Strawberry Slush then punched out using the owl punch.

The lattice die and window frame framelit look is not new as I've seen it around before and I really like the look.




This is a really simple but elegant card and I hope Anthea and Aaron like it.

Thanks for looking.

Products used:  

Stamps:  Love & Laughter, Border Banter
Ink:  Versamark, Strawberry Slush
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Lattice Die, Window Frames Framelit, Basic Pearls, Owl Punch

Cheers
Karren

What a gorgeous card for a special lady! I hadn't seen the lattice in the window before. I LOVE it. You'll probably be seeing it on one of my cards down the line. Thanks for the inspiration, Karren!
