Beach Wedding!

Hello again

Well, this is it - my FIRST 8" x 8" card!!  I've always been a bit scared of going large, but I just adore this paper, kindly donated once again by my good friend Tasha, and wanted to show it off, as it's my FAVOURITE colour.  Edwin, Tilda and the beach scene are from Magnolia's most recent wedding release, don't you just love them?  I decided as it was  a beach wedding scene that I was trying to create, that the flowers should be exotic colours, so went for a mixture of hot pinks and orange, and for once have used flowers from my stash, while the leaves have been cut with an MS leaf punch.   I cut out Edwin and Tilda, and mounted them on some foam pads to give the picture depth, then added some Flowersoft sand, and a tiny shell gathered on one of my forays to the beach.  The corrugated turquoise card was from a little cheapy shop locally, as was the ribbon, and the sentiment was computer generated.

As always, I'd be glad to hear what you think, if you have time.
