Beach wedding

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

YOUR FAVOURITE 2 EMBELLISHMENTS
...and don't forget to tell us why!

Our sponsor this time is Crafty Sentiment Designs


I love a pretty feel to my cards so I do enjoy adding embellishments and the one I always reach for first is flowers; I have lots so that I can try to match the colours of my image or paper!

I had to think a little for my second favourite embellishment choice as I do use a few things but realised it had to be pearls as I often scatter a few around just to add a little hint of detail and elegance.


The beach themed papers and details were chose because the couple are getting married on a beach, and I have to say I really love the kind of faded natural look to this design.


I know I've already picked my 2 fave embellies but I have to admit that a metal charm often finds it's way onto my designs...like this uber cute little shell charm :-)

The tags are made from the blank tag shape available in one of the LOTV sets and I stamped the names with little letter stamps...this only works with short names though - lol!


Card recipe;
Large focal sentiment: Congratulations statements - LOTV
DP: Shoreline treasures - Pion Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Tag: blank tag shape from Christmas sentiment tags - LOTV
Charm: Shell mix charms  -The Hobby House
Hessian ribbon & pearls: from stash

I hope you will pop over to As You Like It and check out the fabulously creative projects from the rest of the team :-)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,


Challenges I am entering;
Inky Chicks (use a metal embellishment)
Sweet Stampin' (anything but a birthday)

You certainly have achieved the look of weathered and washed out wood found on the beach with this delightful Wedding card. It is created to perfection with all the little details you have added to combine the theme.

Yeah, this is absolutely exquisite! The idea of using that loop in this way is just amazing. You did a great job dear. I always appreciate these kinds of creative things and being a party decorator use such unique items. Currently I am looking for the ideas for the decoration of an indoor wedding at wedding halls in Los Angeles.
