Birthday Unicorn

This card uses a great digi stamp from Make it Crafty that I coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens
The card design developed as I had only a little bit of the text paper.
I cut it down to strips and used the blue to spread it out a bit
All paper was from my scraps box
I love the unicorn as has a slightly drunk expression!

This card is for the following challenges

Handmade Wedding Bouquet

Thought I would share the bouquet I made for my daughters wedding.
This was made using squares of paper that you fold into each petal, then I stuck 5 or 6 petal around a cocktail stick to form each flower and finished with a gem in the centre.
It was a real labour of love.
She wanted lollies in her bouquet so I used a round polystyrene ball to stick the lollies and the flowers in, with some pencils taped together to form the handles. These were then hidden by the purple ribbon that matched the colour theme.
It was a bouquet that could not be thrown as it would have caused damage but she was really pleased with it as she did not want real flowers. 
As a surprise for Jen and Marcus I added the tags with the some pictures of some grandparents that watched from heaven, so she felt they were part of the day.
I made a smaller one for her bridesmaid to carry as well.

I am entering this into the following challenges

At Last some time to craft and blog ..

At last I have some time to craft and blog. After my daughters wedding and then her house purchase, we have been helping them decorate and get their house sorted.
Whilst we did that to surprise me my son decorated our now spare room and moved all my craft stuff in, so I now have my own room for crafting in - how lucky am I.

This card uses a pre coloured image from Charmed Craft that at I have had for ages, 
the charmed digi stamps where the first stamps I used when I started using digi ones.
It is simply printed onto the card and then the text added using word.
Inside the card the verse says

Scientists have discovered
that the longer people
stay married, the more
they begin to look alike.
You better start putting
name tags in your underwear!
