A Wedding Celebration

Hello bloggers,

I hope this Monday morning finds you all well.  I'm here with a card for the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More. Our hostess is Josephine and she has chosen the theme 
PAPER PRICKING/PIERCING

Josephine would like to see decorative paper pricking or piercing.  If you want you can stitch the holes you prick, but if you choose to do that, please ensure it's real stitching, not faux (drawn) stitching.


Here's my card (anyone got any tips for photographing miri card - it was a nightmare, the card looks much better IRL!) ....



Supplies Used
Scallop die and co-ordinating piercing template from Stampin' Up
Sentiment is also Stampin Up (Perfectly Penned)
Silver miri card embossed with Victorian Fleur EF
Silver glitter hearts punched from SU owl punch
Bride and Groom are iron on motifs from Hobbycraft

Our Sponsor for this challenge is:



Okay, that's me for today, thank you so much for popping in.

Suze xx

Beautiful and elegant card. Mirri card is very hard to photograph, it's best to try from a side angle! Hugs, Valerie

I have no tips, Suze, it gives me fits every time I use it, too. But it is SO worth using it to achieve the beauty and elegance of this perfect wedding card!! Hope you have a great week! Hugs, Darnell

Sorry, no tips. I sometimes have this battle with mica or when I work with transparencies.
I simple have to fiddle around then pick the most suitable photograph - told you I wouldn't be of help!!!
This is such a great designed card, love the impact of the pricking down the side. Very elegant.
Wishes
Lynne
