Marcy’s Tying the Knot Hop!


Hello Everyone!  Today is an EXTRA SPECIAL HOP for our beloved Peep in Chief!!!  Tomorrow our dear Marcy is marrying the love of her life, Doug, and to celebrate the Bloom Brigade and Instant Gardeners are having a Wedding Hop!!  If you'd love to leave Marcy and Doug a special message, please leave that on the Power Poppy Blog - I know they will read each and every one of them!

Dearest Marcy and Doug - as your big day fast approaches, I just wanted to say how over the moon happy I am for you both!  You are obviously head over heels for each other and I just know that you are going to be so very happy together!  How many people can say that they have truly found their soul mate as you two have and are obviously so perfect together.  As much as I know that your wedding will be stunningly gorgeous, it's more that I wish for you a truly happy, long and blissful marriage - the kind that your beautiful blended family will grow up and aspire for themselves.  May you always have this joy, love and happiness that you do today. With much love from across the Pacific........Kathy xx


About my card - well I know that blue is traditional for weddings - but when has Marcy ever been traditional????  I could only ever imagine her wedding surrounded in GREEN - lots of plants, flowers and foliage!  So I based my card on creams and greens with a splash of peachy/red.  With a base of cream, then green and then more cream (cut with 5x7 Elegant Labels 4 and airbrushed with a little green inside).  Then some green and peachy/red Graphic 45 DP cut with Grand Labels 4, topped with Wild Wasabi cut with more Elegant Labels 4.  Across this is some wide ivory ribbon.  Next is cream cut with Labels 4, topped with green cut with another Elegant Labels 4.  Finally on top of this behemoth of a card is a oval of X-press It Blending Card, with the cake from Dream Wedding stamped in Grey Flannel.  I've coloured this with Copics and sponged the edges with Antique Linen ink.  I've popped these layers up on X-press It Foam Tape.  I've stamped the sentiment also from Dream Wedding in Grey Flannel on cream card and die cut.  I've added a huge bow and finished with a sprinkling of rhinestones.

Unfortunately due to the sheer amount of time international mail takes, this card won't quite make it in time for the wedding, but the heartfelt love will be with you on the day!
