Paper Play Challenges - Wedding Celebrations

Hi!! What a warm day we have today. Of course it's also overcast so very hot and sticky.. ick!! However, I guess it means summer is finally on it's way :)

PaperPlay have a great challenge for you this week - Wedding Celebrations!! With the busiest wedding months here I'm sure we all know of at least one ... (or 10, lol)... couple getting married.

We are thrilled to be sponsored by Waltzing Mouse stamps  and Claire is offering up a pack of stamps - of the winners choice!!  Make sure to check out the wonderful stamp sets she designs herself, including Nestability friendly sets!!

I have doubled this up with the Just Magnolia challenge this week, which is "One for the Girls". 

My beautiful Tilda isn't actually a 'Bride' but I think she definitely works as one. These Fairytale Magnolia's are so pretty!! 

I have coloured my image using copic sketch markers. I am trying to nail the distress ink look using copics.. not sure I'm there yet!! Practice makes perfect though? :)

My flowers are, as always, from Wild Orchid. I have inked them all using Brushed Cordory and then added some Star Dust stickles. The pin is also from WOC. 

The ribbon, heart shaped doily and pearls are from my stash.

Other challenges: 
Pile it On - Photo Inspiration
Papertake Weekly - Say it with Flowers

Thanks so much for visiting me today. 
Happy Crafting
