Wedding Card (eeek I really don't do wedding cards lol)

Hi all, it's time for a new challenge over at That Craft Place and the challenge for the next fortnight is Wedding.  Now I have to admit I try and avoid Wedding cards, I just never seem to know what to do lol.  I decided to make a 8by8inch card, you know, to keep it easy lol.  I have almost all of the distress inks, and I never seem to use them, I see so many beautiful backgrounds done with them so I decided to have a go.
I used tumbled glass to colour a piece of paperartsy stamping card, then I stamped an Indigo Blu flourish and script and I have to admit I absolutely love the soft effect it has given :-)

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -
                  Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Swirls
                  One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
                  Alphabet Challenge - C for coveted - The heart button on the chiffon flower. I bought these a few years ago, they were 3 types in a packet and I'm loathe to use them, I'm thinking of still taking it off, I sewn it on just in case lol, mind you the kids want to give it to their dad who is getting married in a couple of months, but I might change the button so this is definitely coveted lol

I used chiffon fabric to make my flower

You can see some of the background here

The words where cut on my cricut and then
covered with Frantage embossing enamel.

Right I shall be off, I have scheduled this as I never post at 9 in the morning lol.  A lot of my products came from the amazing That Craft Place Shop which is run by Lisa :-)
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kezzy

Great card with lovely swirls... and I don't know how long it's been like this (and I may even have said so before) but I like your new look blog.

I grew up reading Alice In Wonderland and I can completely recommend the book (and the follow-up Alice Through the Looking Glass which I love even more) even to grown-ups. The Disney film... not so much for me!
