Love is in the air

This is a funny wedding card for my sister-in-law who lives in Queensland, Australia. She recently got married, a wedding the whole family attended...on-line! Yes, thanks to Skypes the whole family managed to participate. I have been to many weddings in my life and I think this was by far the best I have ever attended - from the comfort of our house, in our pyjamas, cos it was 1am for us and morning for them - no need for a new outifit, sore feet or makeup :-)


It is a fairly large card (17x15cm); pale green base cardstock; the 2 gorgeous patterned papers I used in blue/green/turquoise tones are from the Capsule Collection by Papermania; digital image by Bugaboo (which I won in one of their challenges), coloured with Letraset Promarkers; X-cut border punch; navy blue cardstock, turquoise ribbon and card candy from my own stash. Because of the large size, I also made the envelope out of the same green card.

My card enters the following challenges:
Craft your Passion - 2 patterned papers
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Love is in the air
Pile it on - Love is in the air
Aud Sentiments - Love
Crafts your days away - Love
Digi Doodles - Swirls

Thanks for your comments, have a nice weekend!
