Vintage Wedding day card

Hi Folks!
Here is a little card i made this week.
It's a 8" square Wedding card which i decided i wanted to experiment with, and use some of my beautiful new Doilies and Dies.
It is Layered with Ivory shimmer and gold mirri card, the top layer i used my beautiful new Doily called Reef (Available from my Website and my eBay store
It gives the appearance and texture of real lace, and i was pretty impressed with results.
The Doily is pretty tough and extremely durable, i used 3M glue spray on the reverse of the Doily and just stuck it down onto the card and wrapped the edges round the back.
I used my new Die from Marianne Craftables CR1241 and spent ages sticking all the ivory pearls around the edge.
Organza Ribbon and bow, and then the flowers which are from WOC and finally a little bit of star dust bling from stickles 

This Doily is called REEF 10.5" round

Good morning folks!
Now this is a shock for you all, me posting again so soon after my previous one, i am a bit like the Buses, you wait for ages and nothing, then along come 6 at once....
This is a card i had to make for a customer, who's Son "Jeet" had just Graduated from University.
Now i know it's not perfect, but i am still trying to master Inkscape, so sometimes things are not quite geometric, and perfectly formed, but i am getting better.
I made the Easel to the size i wanted, and also the Black board (Or is it PC to call it a  Chalk board)
I am old school, and it was always called a Black board in my day.
anyway whatever it's called this is what i made, I framed the board the same on the back as the front, but left it blank so it could be written on with my super duper white pen.
and not a single flower in sight......

Indian Wedding exploding box card

I was asked to make an exploding Box card for an Indian Wedding.
I did a bit of research regarding what colours i should use, and what theme was appropriate.
It seemed that Red, Gold and Green was the order of the day, and Flowers were also traditional at an Indian Wedding.
So this was what i came up with, and thankfully they were delighted.

Chocolate Bouquet

I want to share this beautiful creation by one of my customers (Sheila)
she made  this for her Son's Birthday as a center piece, and my goodness is it a glorious work of art.
She purchased my little Dinky Rosie Doilies, and explained to me what she had in mind, but i never imagined it would look like this.
what an extremely creative and talented lady she is, and when i say it looks too good to eat, i mean it literally.
I understand it was made with Thorntons Chocolates and Marshmallows.

If you want any info on how this awesome and tasty masterpiece was created, then get back to me and i will get the ingredients and method off Sheila for you.
