Pearl Wedding Card in Monotone (warning Picture overload)

Wow it is nearly weekend gosh the week has disappeared so quickly. Today see another challenge at CRAFTY CATZ set by the lovely Linda and she would love to Monochromatic project/cards.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fab digital company
Digital Delights who are kindly giving the winner 3 digital images
For my card this week I had to make a special card for a friend. It is her sister's Pearl Wedding Card. As she didnt want a card with flowers this set me into a panic.

I used heart diecuts from Janette my teamie, along with a memory box corner die and a cherry lynn flourish.  Printed the details in pearl card and cut to mount. Dusted a heart doily with mica powder for the shimmer. Added a prima swirl and some extra pearls. DP has a lovely satin shimmer from Create and Craft, bought from a garden centre few years ago but kept for that special card. Ribbon and lace from a local shop.

Kept the inside fairly plain but with elements to match the from with the cherry lynn die and the DP.

Fancy a game of cards with Craft

Good day hope you are enjoying your day. i have had a good one so far went to hospital for blood tests nie and early so in and out quick then off into Leigh to get some much needed paper and some wooden letter that Tilly told me about. Well walked past Clarke's shoes and they had a sale. Never get any to fit and struggle either crazy price or not my size. Well in i walked and 15mins later walked out  with not 1 pair but 3. OMG 1 if it isn't raining I can walked the dog in but other 2 are much too high but didn't feel too bad. I so want to get out of flat shoes before my aches totally collapse like me. Then off I went with paper and shoes in hand to my car 3 stops for a rest thought walking the dog I would be fitter then remembered it was a fasting test. Stopped at Tillys for a chat and a brew to see how she was and deliver her paper.

Checkout the teams wonderful creations for inspiration. I have had a really busy week with end of school and next week we will have had BUDDY for 1 year omg that went so quickly so thought I  would make a little parcel of treats for him and make a tag for it.
