Wedding card for a special couple

This card is being sent to the very lovely CarlyAnn of Charisma Cardz who is marrying her best friend Rob on 7th August. They are running a FAB Challenge over there with a very lucky person (chosen by Rob after the wedding) winning a fabulously expensive prize!Using Pink Petticoat's Lola Rose Wedding Digi Image coloured with PMs, backed onto red glitterboard then Pink Petticoat's Shimmer Swirls Paper, I created this masterpiece only for it to be ruined by Sweepy (the 8 month old kitten) who walked all over it before the glitter pearlised glue ( for The Creative Cottage Challenge 16) had a chance to set properly! To say I screamed would be putting it very mildly but he is sorry!
I also used my new Marianne Design Creatables flowers and leaves (LR0106) and embossed them onto the same glitter card as the backing using my Bigshot to enter the I Love Digi Challenge. Aren't they adorable - they came out really well - pic doesn't do them justice. The stamped 'forever' is from my new Clear Choice stamp set (bought from Papermill Shop in Hatfield that is closing - half price sale on there at the mo). Love it!
