Quick Wedding Card

Other half is heading off to London at 5am for his pal's wedding. I have cried off - hauling a baby and a toddler onto an early morning Ryanair flight tomorrow and then back on Sunday morning is not my idea of fun. Especially as the itinerary consisted of arrive, pub, eat, pub, sleep - wedding, pub, probably not sleep,home.
Just as well I wasn't going ; as my errant carpenter needs his tail chasing - he is now at the end of week three of what was to be a week job and he vanished for 7 days over the bank holiday. I am sick of the mess and everywhere needs painting again and the furniture guy is meant to be coming tomorrow and there isn't room to manouvere a flat pack let alone the whole fully assembled furniture I have ordered.
So I've just been making a last minute card for the happy couple & I'm off to bed. The patterned paper is Making Memories with pen stitches around the edge
Stamped the Love stamp directly onto the card and then stamped another onto scrap card - cut out the pieces and applied them over the original letters. I offset them slightly and used foam pads for bit of height. I coloured the letters with felt pen scribbled onto plastic then applied to the image with a wet brush. I stamped a wooden square tile with a small whatever that is called flower and inked the edges, layered with Cardstock stickers from Daisy D's added some ivory ribbon, pale blue gems an odd button and a resin butterfly that fell off a fairy ornament.
