Card Mania Challenge - Weddings or Anniversary

Good morning to you all, my wonderful creative friends.

I hope you all had a good weekend.
I know lots of you have been busy putting up your Christmas decorations and I've seen some gorgeous photos of your trees.  Oh, I do love this time of year.

Well, it's the start of another busy week on my blog. I'm not complaining, I honestly love being part of such fabulous Design Teams. I just don't want you to get fed up with me and please don't feel that you have to comment on every card, unless you want to!

My first card this week is my DT card for The Card Mania Challenge
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is 

Weddings or Anniversary

Our sponsor is the wonderful Sassy Studio Design
The prize is 4 digis of your choice

The Design Team were given some gorgeous images to use for this challenge.
I think my hubby thought I was a bit mad making a Wedding card when we don't know of anyone getting married. I tried to explain that it is for a challenge, but I don't think he knew what I was on about!!
Never mind, I have to say, I did enjoy making it even though I have no-one to give it to at the moment !

Enough waffling, here's my card

As you can see it is a criss-cross style card.
Here is a picture showing the tag

And another picture to show the pretty image

Items Used:
Digi stamp - Sassy Studio designs Bella Bride coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Embossing Folder - Crafter's Companion Floral Frenzy

Memory box Sofia Heart die
Marianne Design Creatables - Tags

If you take a look on the Card Mania Challenge blog you will see the stunning creations made by the rest of the design team and also see who were the winners of the last challenge

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

I ♥ Promakers - Anything goes(second entry)
Crafting for all seasons - Use Flowers (second entry)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Bye for now

Karen said...

Oh my goodness Sue... this is exquisite beyond words! I honestly don't even know what to say. Criss-cross cards are among my favorites but I've never seen one so beautiful. The border, floral oval, and dies combine to make this sheer elegance... absolutely perfect for a future bride. It's so lacy and stunning. The image is beautiful and you've colored it to absolute perfection (as always). I cannot tell you how much I love this card. Brilliant work, my talented friend! :o)

Before I flutter off to sleep, I want to apologize for this awful delay. I was bogged down all week with a deadline and couldn't squeeze in any Blogger time. It honestly breaks my heart to be so delayed in leaving love for my dear friends. Thank you for being patient during this very busy year! Visiting you is a reprieve from the pressure, as your creations bring me such joy. :o) I will be back Sunday to finish catching up!

Hugs and blessings!

Oh wow wow wow Sue - this is super - it is such a delicate colour and the flowers are amazing. My hubby is just the same, the other day I was doing a Christmas tree using some Core-dinations card (the one that is white with a colour underneath) I had distressed them and he asked if I was leaving them like that, so I explained that I had distressed them and I got a look as if I had two heads!!! I now give in! LOL. Bless 'em! It would be lovely if you could tell me where the smallest flower (on the dress and bouquet) is from. I bet it's the one that is anonymous.

Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx
