"Wedding Trio"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who pop in just to have a wee look.   Great to have you here, I love to read all your comments makes this Blogging lark more worth while.  If you are visiting, leaving a comment and do not have an active Blog  .. thank you very much.  I always feel a little guilty if I can not link back to either visit your Blog or at least thank you, so I am doing that now.
Weather has been quite nice here the past few days, still rather cool, yesterday was also very windy.  Not complaining the washing has been out dried and ironed, put away all in the same day. 
Boys here all day Friday, were out playing most of the time.  They had great fun feeding the sheep over the fence and playing in the woods.  Robert also did some stamping & colouring boy type images!!!   I will pop them on my Blog some day this week.  Mummy was night shift, Daddy up early for a meeting in Glasgow.  He dropped the boys off on his way past, that way Audrey was able to get home and have a sleep.   Audrey had a special delivery at work ...... my friend Elaine`s daughter had a little girl.  They have called her Emily Rose she was 6lbs 11ozs.
Have been busy with orders plus making cards to welcome the new baby.  I have also managed to get time to open all the new Dies I have bought.  I feel rather guilty at buying Dies and never actually getting them out of the packets.  They are out in the "open" now and I have been playing with them. Results will be shown soon.
Here is a "wedding trio" for an order.  I was asked for a Card "boxed" and a little Gift Card:-

Card approx 8 x 8 cut from A3 Papermill White card
Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion also A3 cut to size, a Sue Wilson Embossing folder 
SB Die lightly inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink for the computer generated sentiment
SB Blossom Five for the Roses also lightly inked
SB Foliage for the leaves

Now the Box:-

Box is from Stella Crafts 8 x 8
I like to buy my boxes for Special Order Cards
White Organza ribbon from Mieflower which ties so beautifully.  A Rose and a  couple of leaves

Little Gift Card approx 4 x 4 made from off cuts from the project:-

That`s it for today 
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

  32. This is simply so elegant. Loved those marvelous roses, they look so very realistic. The faint touch of the Victorian Velvet on the S/B trimming. TFS & Hugs

  33. Oops..just saw I didn't finish my sentence on the DI coloring on the S/B...that was a wonderfully subtle accent to the white card. Loved the pretty box & tiny gift card. A beautiful set.
