Wedding card

Firstly, I would like to wish everyone who visits my little blog,
a VERY Happy New Year!!!!

You are all special to me and I really appreciate you taking the time and trouble to come on over.
Leaving a comment makes my day and is food and drink to me.

So here's to health wealth and happiness to you all!!!!

This is for my youngest son's wedding day on the 2nd January.

The theme is black, white and pink.
(I might change the white pearls for pink ones).
The CS is matt silver and looks grey IRL.
The frame is a template I made from the last of the
original die-cuts I got off my lovely US friend, Jennifer.
I drew round it and now have a passable frame I can use. I did the faux stitching with my black Marvey pen.
The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I didn't have an appropriate stamp for the sentiment,
so printed it onto white linen CS after measuring the frame.
Held it up to the light with the frame behind to center it.

PLEEEEEZE Can anyone tell me how to get my hands on this die???I remember reading somewhere that it was exclusive to SU, but can't see it anywhere. (It's called 'Top Note' and is exclusive to SU). Only in the States though, awwww. I'll be your friend for life if you lead me to buying one.

*pleading expression on mush* :0)

Hi Viv, fabulous card, love the colours and the outlay and I think you are right, the pink pearls would be nice but it looks okay as it is anyway. Hope you have a fab day, wrap up well and a few warm brandies would be good (medicinal of course!).

Happy New Year to you both

What a beautiful card, so elegant.
The die reminds me of one of the Nestabilities Labels dies, I may be wrong though but the nestabilities die would be similar

Hi Viv!!!!

Linda has told me so much about you!!! I wanted to let you know, you could order that die from my Stampin' Up! site which you can get to from my blog. You can use it in a Cuttle Bug but the Big Shot machine is ABSOLUTELY the BEST!!!!! Love your SITE!!!!! Beautiful cards!!!!
