In the spotlight this week is Elaine who is a marvellous member of the team and makes some gorgeous projects showcasing the digis available from the store.

Pop over to the store and make sure you sign up for it. While you are there don't forget that for the Month of June we have a new store collab with the theme of 4th July and Picnics which is free with a $10 purchase.

This will be the last week that you will be able to get it free so you don't want to miss out!!

I was given a fab wedding image by Stitchy called Hitched. I coloured the cute couple with Promarkers and used one of my new Nestabilities dies to cut out the design. For the layout I used the latest Deconstructed Sketch. I used a pretty paper from Dovecraft for the background adding some ink around the edge to define it as it got lost in the cream background. I used a red lace trim that I have had for ages to pull out the colour of the roses.

I was struggling to find a sentiment and remembered some epoxy stickers I bought YEARS ago and have never opened YAY for starting to use stash up!! I mounted the sticker on a scrap of card, added a faux stitching border and cut around that. I think the border emphasises the writing and am pleased with how it turned out. I added a punched heart courtesy of Martha Stewart, the most expensive punch I own (because it came from Hobbycraft) but I wanted it so much and had Christmas vouchers to spend so it wasn't too bad :)

I am looking forward to seeing the cards that are entered into this challenge and hope to see lots of entries from you.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - A5
Papers - Wedding collection (Dovecraft)
Image - Hitched by Stitchy Bear
Tools - Nestability dies, Martha Stewart heart lattice punch
Embellishments - red lace trim, red ribbon for bow, epoxy heart sticker
Techniques - Distressing with ink pad, fax stitching, layering with 3d foam pads.
