Top hat and tails

This is my effort for Sunday Postcard 'top hat and tails'.

The bride and groom are a download from the Charmed Love and Marriage Dottie and George and they have been superimposed over a photo of the view into a church at a wedding (Dottie and George cover the original bride and groom):

Stamping with Leonardo

This card is for the sketch on Ooh-la-la 44:


It's also for:

Sunday Stamper 85: 'faces'
PaperPlay 1: 'precious metals' - the pink clip
Humble Pie: 'flourishes'
KL stampin' n scrappin' 12: 'pink, black and a neutral (grey)
Ildi Co 7: 'scrap & metal' - use only scraps (they were - part of one of my new year resolutions) and some type of metal - the pink clip
Kraftin'Kimmie 12: 'heavy metal'
365 cards day 303: 'with a flourish' - 'To meet the requirements for today's challenge, you need to add at least 3 flourishes to your card. They can be stamps, rubons, patterned paper, etc.' I used one of my favourite flourish stamps by Dawn Bibby to randomly stamp the pink card.


The Leonardo (Stampington) stamp is one I had for Christmas - I just lightly coloured the face with a pink copic (doesn't really show on here), so, as the stamp is new - it's the first time I've used it - it's another one for Crafty Ann 5: 'new year' new inspiration', Fussy & fancy 1: 'new' and the Craft Garden January challenge: 'new'.

The pink card etc is more pink irl.

Love without hearts

This card is for sketch 73 on Cutie Sunday:

It's also for:

Dottie's world: 'B'ring out the old, B'ring in the new' -the old is the HOTP papers; the new is the prima flowers and centres (among the goodies I received from Quixotic for winning a challenge)
Cute Daisy May: 'love!'
Digital Tuesday 40: 'Valentines!' - I used a digi download from Charmed
My time to craft 73: 'blue & brown'
Quixotic 8: 'hot chocolate' (I concentrated on the colour)
Divine Diva inspiration 19: 'chocolate'
Hand full of stamps 11: 'say it with flowers' - the young man has given his sweetheart flowers - and there are prima flowers on the card
No time to stamp? 121: 'love is in the air'
Saturday spotlight 13: 'love without hearts'
Creative Inspirations 42: anniversary card
Another one for Penny's: 'chalks' - I chalked the flowers with chestnut brown chalked ink because they were too pale without
Also another for Frosted designs: 'ink challenge' (the chalk ink on the primas) - I like the way the chalking accentuates the embossing

I used HOTP papers that were in my scraps box, which ties in with my resolution to use up offcuts rather than cut into new 12 x 12, so this is good for:

Dollies elements: 'resolutions'
3 clovers 46: 'new year resolutions'

Basic Grey 11: 'photo inspiration':

Here is my card:

The background paper is BG wisteria and the cloudy blue piece is BG mellow. The glittery silver strips are PM. The peacock is a digi image that I won as part of a prize recently from Paper Popsicles and was coloured with copics and highlighted with glossy accents (shame this doesn't show up here - on the body of the peacock and the 'eyes')
