For our daughter and her husband.........

 Rhea's mum Mary asked me to make her a card for Rhea & Phil and I was only too happy to oblige. This card is slightly smaller than A4 because that's the size that the fancy frame came out. I just trimmed away the bottom of the card so that the cut fit. I used a Pink Petticoat paper for the background and topped it with a silver mirri frame, which I embellished with sequin flowers and pearls. The aperture in the centre was backed with Pink Petticoats French Script paper. The bride and groom were cut from black pearlised cardstock. I trimmed the full skirt from the bride to a more figure hugging style (uncannily similar to Rhea's dress in fact!) then drew around it twice onto white pearlised cardstock to create the dress and train, which I embossed. The train was adhered to the dress with foam pads. I created a veil from some shimmer 'fabric' paper from Papermania and adhered it to the bride's head (I cut a curly bun style by hand and adhered it to the bride's head first) and covered the join with small pearls. I added some 'buttons' to the back of the dress to finish. The frame was further embellished with WOC roses and lilies and a sheer bow. I also added a jumbo pearl and silver hatpin through the floral arrangement. The sentiment was computer generated onto white pearlised in 60% greyscale and Lavenderia (my favourite at the moment!) font, and matted onto silver mirri then adhered to the frame with foam pads.
Of course it needed a box!
