Wedding card

Hi Everyone, another bitterly cold day, never mind it will make us more grateful for the Summer, as long as it doesn't rain like last year LOL

Just thought I would show you my daffodils that I posted in February are now STILL doing, I think it's the longest we have ever had them last..  I took these picture yesterday, even the tulips are poking their red heads through.  As you can also see, we have had no snow, the mountains around us have had plenty but they took it all for us.

Sorry it's at a funny angle, I tried to catch the clematis too, by the stones

Now onto a card I was asked to make, it had to be classy and have the colours purple, lilac and silver, took me a few days to get it together, then I spied Unicorn Dreams a kit by Skies the Limit Scraps I have in my files and the card became an idea, which just grew and grew as you can see, I took 45 minutes to cut out the flowers on the decoupage, without the layout design, but the kit did it make it a lot easier. I added Pink Petticoat paper as the background as it seemed to match it.  Then lots of Glamour Dust, I added a box and laid it in tissue paper, I have to admit it's one of those cards that occasionally, I really love.
