Wedding Crazy!!! (JAI Challenge 9)

I'm writing this post very, very quickly between a kitchen tea and a wedding ceremony rehearsal!!! Yes it's wedding crazy around here. The kitchen tea was for a gorgeous work friend of my Mum's and the rehearsal is for my brother's wedding which is this Friday. I can't believe my little brother will be a married man this time next week. I am so so excited about his big day.

I decided to make my brother and soon-to-be-sister-in-law's wedding card using this week's Just-Add-Ink Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

The inspiration for this card came from Delys Cram's (a JAI Design Team Member) creation for the Just-Add-Hearts challenge. Thank you Delys- you can see her wonderful creations HERE. I have also fallen in love with Teneale Williams' work and having seen the way she decorates the insides of her cards I have decided to start adding something special to the insides of my cards too. (I forgot to take a photo of the inside of this one but will add it to this post when there is some good light to snap it in). This card came together so easily and I really am so very happy with it!!!

"Forever Happy Together Card" Ingredients

Stamp Sets: I (Heart) Hearts; Framed with Love; Cheep Talk
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Paper/Card: Riding Hood Red; Whisper White; Pink Pirouette
Other: Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon; Scallop Edge Punch; Paper piercing tool & mat pack; Chit Chat Rub Ons; Half Pearls; Crystal Effects (to make the bold red hearts shiny).

I have another wedding card to show you which I will hopefully get chance to post tomorrow before the craziness of this week begins!!!

Bye for now,

Louise x
