Unconventional Wedding Card


I'll be honest but I made a bit of an error with the Sweet Sketch Wednesday, I draw the sketch in a notebook and take it to my craftroom. Well somehow I drew it slightly different from the original, I thought the strip down the side looked a bit short. That bottom left hand corner annoys me even more now I know what I've done.
Apart from that I loved how it came together. The image is of course a Sarah Kay and I'ved used  the cherish PATP with Kaiser papers.  Mixture of roses with the Die-namics swirl and the papers cried out for lace and who was I to refuse. The Quickutz corner die corners so help the corner I was unhappy with. The sentiment is Stampin Up and their punches.
I would like to thank all the lovely comments about my melt down and it was lovely to know that so many of you understood why. Also it was comforting to know I wasn't alone.

No mistake could be so pretty. I rather like the little open areas katywampus from each other (do they use that phrase there?). Such a sweet image and love the cherish frame. May I say you have the best collection of small sentiment stamps? I'm very jealous. :-) Hugs, Kathy

Oooooh Debby - I just love looking at your gorgeous work, and yep - I'm gonna say it again - the 3-d effect is amazing - I've never seen anyone else's decoupage so perfectly cut and shaped. These adorable characters look as if they could walk through the screen!
The colouring is fabulous, and what beautiful embellishments.
I was really interested to see that polychromos are your favourite colouring medium - I have never tried them, (I mainly use Copics), but the effect you get is amazing.
Hope you are feeling much better now - Hugs, Sylvia xx
