New Challenge at LHOSM - Mr and Mrs

Hi everyone,

If you are looking for my inspirational card for the Ribbon Girl, please scroll down.

 We have a new challenge beginning at
 Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia today and the theme is the ever popular:

'Spring Flowers'.

I have coloured up a new Maggie (Mr and Mrs), well I've had a little while, but only just got around to colouring it up. So I was thinking of a 'Spring Wedding'. I haven't gone with the normal spring colours for this card, but roses, daisies and carnations do bloom from mid spring on wards.

I have coloured the images with distress reinkers and added speckles of  glitter to her dress, which doesn't show up in the pic and some stardust stickles to her crown.

The shape of the card has been cut with a hexagon shaped die. 

The papers are from a 12 x 12 paper pad called The Formal Affair paper stack, which I have machine stitched around the edges. As it's a wedding card, I have covered the smallest hexagon in white lace, on the top and base of the card,  which doesn't show up very well in the pic.

I have cut several dies on this card, Sizzix (Distressed Doily), Magnolia (So Wrapped Lovely Tag) (Little Darlings (Lovely View) and Lala Land (Heart Doily).

Where possible I have put links to the products I have used at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.
