Celebrating your Wedding day!

Afternoon all, I've been good today and have finished my housework before coming to blog and craft.  I've got that nice feeling that everything is tidy and clean so now I can play.....not that it will last for very long!

Last week I was asked to create a Wedding card for a couple that married abroad earlier in the year.
The brief was classy with a peach and cream colour combo. 
Now those who know me.....know the state of my craft room and the fact it is overflowing with crafty loveliness....could I find a sheet of peach card!?!
I have to admit it isn't a colour combo I have been asked for many years, if my memory serves me correctly it was big in the mid 80's?! 
I might be wrong but it is said that fashion goes round in a big circle?
Anyway another CAS card here.....

I love using the Spellbinder square and Fleur de lis square to create a frame. 
It creates a simple yet elegant card, perfect for weddings. 
I have added card stock from the Papeterie and Ranger, with pearls and satin ribbon from my stash.  The wording was printed on the computer.

So what do I have planned for the rest of the day.  I have another 1/2 dozen cards like the one posted yesterday just ready to put together.  I've started crocheting a baby bonnet for a Christmas gift be honest I've had a couple attempts at following the pattern...but I think this last attempt is looking much better.  Practise makes perfect! 
I think the hardest part in crocheting is my lack of knowledge.  I'm finding I can do the stitches but then putting them in practise following a pattern with confidence is a whole other ball game.

Finally this evening I shall be taking the boys drumming and band practise and maybe a wee sneaky look in the auctions.

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday.  x

Your card is beautiful and yes peach and cream is not something you see these days, but lovely all the same and it's nice to do things that people want.

Beautiful elegant card, just what was asked for.
You have made a great job even if it was not a colour choice you would have made. Each to their own as they say!!!
