Filigree Wedding

First, I have to say I was disappointed with this photo. It looked better on Splitcoaststampers when I uploaded it this morning. I went back and tweaked it some in Picasa but still don't like it so much. The lighting is off and the size, also. This is as large as it would get on Blogger.

I worked so hard on this card. I found this tutorial at Flowers, Ribbons, and Pearls. I love everything she does and she has wonderful tutorials. Instead of explaining how I did this card, I will let you look at her tutorial. I did have to order this corner die to make it. You need a die that doesn't cut out all the way around. I had a corner die but it didn't want to work.  This is Heartfelt Creations Decorative Blossom Corner die set. I finished the back as she did but I didn't use the curved dies on mine.

This card fits two challenges on Splitcoaststampers: Free 4 All-Flower Power and the Fan Club central theme: The Keys to Happiness-Things that make you happy. Weddings and love make me happy.

I did have a bit of a hard time making it and took a while. But, I'm hoping if I do it again it will be easier. I think it makes a beautiful wedding card.

I want to wish all my fellow bloggers a very Happy Easter.

I'll be around to your blogs as soon as possible. Hubby is off work today and tomorrow we are visiting our grandchildren. Then, off again on another trip Sunday.
