Hello folks on yet another wet and dismal day and at this rate I think I'll soon have webbed feet as I'm sure it's only the ducks who would like this much rain!
I have a card to share with you made with one of the gorgeous and cute Emma Canning digital images that Nikky now has available for downloading at Polka Doodles.
Two of my younger daughter's friends are getting married very soon so I have some wedding cards to make and decided to get a head start.

The image is called Paige Wedding Day and I printed her out then coloured her with Promarkers adding detail to her hair with Prismacolor pencils to give some texture (largely because I'm not that great at doing this with the markers lol). I then cut her out.
I covered my card blank with some of the elegant rose paper from the Love & Cherish CD and added crochet lace and some subtle glittery Laura Ashley ribbon.
I embossed the gorgeous frame from the Sissix Roses & Frame set on to some pearly silver card and then cut it out. I added a central white panel cut to size and embossed with a Cuttlebug hearts folder. I added the image with foam tape and embellished her frock with a silver dotty bow.
I die cut a sentiment with a round Nestabilities die to finish off my card.

I also have a bit of great news to share as my Strawberries card from a week or so back won the Craft Punked Strawberries & Cream challenge - I was thrilled to bits with this and would like to thank Steph and the team for picking my creation. Here's the fab badge I just received.

Thanks for looking and hope you all have a great weekend.
Fliss xx

PS After three days of sunshine we are back to wet, windy, storm, hailstones, hot, humid, thunder and lightning etc!

Weathers the same here Fliss, at least the ducks are happy.

Zachary's gone to Wakestock with his friends, I just checked their website and it said lilo rafting in wellies seemed more appropriate than the music.

A very pretty and delicate card.
