Happily Ever After

My card today has been made for the CD Sunday challenge, which at the moment is Happily Ever After. I've used an 8x8x base for my card with silver for the matting. The backing paper is from the Holly Pond Hill CD and the stamp from Lili Of The Valley. I coloured the image using Spectrum Noir pencils and cut the couple out using a spellbinders die. Before removing the image from the die I went around the edges lightly with Spiced Marmalade distress ink. I then mounted the image onto one of the fancy frame dies from spellbinders, then popped it onto the card. I've added flowers made with a crealies die with paper roses popped into the middles and also a couple of pins to match. The sentiment was made on the PC and foiled with silver.



Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue

I've liked this image ever since LOTV brought it out and you've certainly done it justice. You've put the card together really well - don't think there's even one thing I dislike!
