love and marriage

   The theme for our challenge at Creative Corner this week is 'Wedding bells are ringing'.
   I made this card for Annabelle, a cancer nurses who is treating my husband. Her husband's name begins with a D so I decided to combine the initials to form the word 'and' in the phrase 'love and marriage'. Thinking of the rest of the song, 'goes together like a horse and carriage', I used the Lili of the Valley stamp called wedding carriage.
   I coloured the image using Promarkers and matted it onto gold mirri card which I had cut out using a Spellbinders scalloped circle die.The words were created in Word, coloured using Promarkers and again matted onto gold mirri card.
   The background paper was quilted in gold lines and matted onto white card. I outlined it with gold peel offs. I added embellishments of gold hearts, cream rose buds and cream bows.
