Two of a kind

Our challenge over a A Spoon Full of Sugar today is Weddings. I used this sweet wedding couple by Scrapmagasinet. The gorgeous lace and flowers were sent to me from dear Tina. The charms were also a gift some time ago from my good friend Heidi. The paper is Basic Grey. I am not sure from what collection as it was loose in my drawer. The sentiment is part of the Pink Cat set Lily and Billy sweethearts. I used the word window punch to cut out the sentiment. All edges have been chalked with VersaMagic Jumbo java. My couple have been coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I added a little stickles to the roses in her bouquet. To finish I added some half pearls to decorate and a small gem for her earring.



Our sponsor this week is me :-) Bunny Zoe's crafts!! The lucky winner will win the below cute Bildmalarna Mimo Fishing stamp and a variety of buttons. I have a great range of Bildmalarna stamps and as well as Mimo and Mimosa I am expecting arrivals of Tossa & Tosse and Frolle Frogs.... hopefully today! Be sure to check out these cute swedish stamps!



Our wonderful guest this week is Anita. Anita's card is breathtaking. Be sure to visit her at her blog.

My card today is also for our challenge over at the Scrapmagasinet DT blog. We have a nice easy challenge for you today.. so no excuses not to join in! We are asking you to use flowers on your cards... I told you it was easy! As always we have a great prize and one lucky person will win one of the new Digital stamp sets from the Scrapmagasinet store!!

Hugs,
