My SIL's wedding card, and 4 other cards made this week

Today my dear sister-in-law Rachel marries Tony at 2pm, I am her witness as they sign the wedding register. The sun is shining for them both today and I hope it stays that way  and that they have a lifetime of love, happiness and their dreams coming true, as htey start their new life together as husband and wife. I wish them nothing but the best that life has to offer.

I made them a HouseMouse decoupage card and a matching envelope.
The decoupage is layered on pink and silver foiled paper,  onto a Kanban pink & silver A4 sheet.
Then mounted onto a silver A5 foil card. the card is embellished with silver heart ribbon and peel-offs to personalise the card. the insert (unseen) is printed off from the Crafters copanion Rose Fairy CDRom, this same CDRom was used to decorate the envelope, along pink and silver Kanban backing paper, to co-ordinate with the card.

This Thursday Carrie's frined Jasmine was 16, she is mad on dogs, this is her card

I used PM 'Verde' Capsule Collection gems, all other elements were from my stash

Here are 4 anniversary cards made for DC craft forum friends.

the first 2 cards both use PM 'Verde' Capsule Collection gems, all other elemtns are from my stash.

This next card includes Poundland bargains - the large gem and glittered paper flower
