More blue and silver Christmas

This is for Challenge up your life 25 sketch, which also calls for sewing:

The background card is stardream, another piece of the stitched paper across the middle and the silver strips and stars cut from pattered embossed foil card - much more silver than it looks here.

This is also for:

A special day tomorrow

It's a special day tomorrow for two friends at church - it's their wedding day.

I decided to wrap their present in a piece of Creative Imaginations Sonnets paper 'love' and found a piece of textured, sparkly ribbon that went with it. Having done this I discovered I had another piece of the paper, so I made a matching card. The inside message says 'Congratulations on your wedding day'.

I think I'm safe to show this on here today because I doubt that the bride-to-be will be looking at my blog tonight!
