Well folks, it's my first official week on the Design Team at

This weeks challenge was titled Wedding/Anniversary and set by lovely Vicky.  And here is my first card...........

I only had just over a day to sort it out too cause everything happened a little quickly lol. 

I decided to use the new stash that came in the other day as I hadn't had chance to play with it as yet.  It's Viva Decor's My Paper World.   

  • Paper soft in Violet, Lilac and Lime Green for the background
  • Paper Pens in Lime Green mixed with Opal (you've gotta give these a try.  So much better than Liquid Pearls.  They give you a proper dome effect instead of the pointy bit) on the stencil, sprinkled with Holo Glitter and just Opal for the pearl effect highlights (see Vickies Blog and scroll for more details and a comparison)
  • Stencils from the 4 Borders collection
I used a Woodware Wedding stamp that Wendy ordered for me last year but never used (how typical of us crafters, "Ooooh I gotta have it" but it sits in a drawer forgotten for ages before it's used lol) I just highlighted it with my Prisma colour pencils and Sansador for a subtle look.  Just because we all like  a bit of bling I used me Stickles on the flowers and collar of the dress.
Well I hope you like me first challenge card and here's to many more.  
Please pop along to my fellow DT members blogs and have a peek at their cards for this weeks challenge (they're just a bit fabulous u know) and join in with the challenge for a chance to win some stash from Wendy at Secret Crafter
