Today is a beautiful day here - blue skies and lots of  crisp white frost - cold it may be but I really like the cold when the skies are as clear as they are today!
So crisp and white outside and also here.... with a white and silver wedding card!

Even tho' the happy event isn't until this weekend there's no danger of the recipients seeing this as it's a commissioned card. I have however met the lady in question and she is a lovely girl and I hope they have a wonderful life together.

As with all things white and pearly it was a nuisance to photograph but really enjoyed making it as it gave me an opportunity to just use die cuts for the whole thing.

I seriously enjoy making these paper flowers and just popped behind some punched out leaves in silver mirri card. 

I don't have a heart die cut so I cheated and used the discarded bits from the corner flourish and stuck them onto some embossed card then cut round them - et voila -two hearts! More discarded bits used as the flourish from the hearts and the flowers.

Silver mirri put behind the centre greeting which I printed out on the PC, silver wedding rings were from my stash and finished with a tiny punched out butterfly and a couple of sparkly gems.

  22. OMW Viv, this is just stunning! I love how you have added silver mirri into the holes created by the two different dies, and it's just perfect for our challenge too. I am so grateful you actually bothered to read the post and realise which song to be inspired by as most of the entrants have just picked their own song!

    This will be a wedding card that will truly be treasured for a very long time.
