Gonna get Married?

Not me no!, happily married for 22 years and counting, it's the name of one of the Clipart Fairy's new kits, and when I saw it I just couldn't resist, I fell in love with the fun image.

It's a great kit, and excellent value at only 65p for five papers, the bride and groom image, a wedding cake, and 2 word arts. Here's what I did with it.

This is how it looks when it's closed.

Here it is opened up....

...and from a different angle.

The flowers, pearls and pearl hearts are all from my stash, everything else from the Gonna Get Married-Lilac kit.

I've found a couple of challenges that this is suitable for:

Guylou's Inimitability - Anything Goes
Little Claire's Designs - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Funky - (bride and groom image)
ResQ - Something that makes you happy - (wedding)
Party Time Tuesday - Anything Goes
Paper Romance Challenges-Anything Goes
Creative Craft World - Square card

There is also a fab freebie on the Clipart Fairy's blog, I made this very quick card with it.

There are two parts to the freebie, the plain pink nestin and the patterned nestin with the baby image and wordart on, I printed the plain nestin onto one half of a sheet of A4 white linen card, scored and folded it and then cut around both pieces whilst still folded so the back and front shapes matched. I printed out the patterned layer twice, added one to the main card with foam pads, then cut out the baby and the wordart from the second and again added to the card with foam pads, I then added a little bow with vintage seam binding from the Ribbon Girl with a little flower from my stash in the middle and lots of glamour dust of course!

You can put the parts together any way you like, the Clipart Fairy has made an easel card with it over on her blog, check it out while you are picking up the freebie.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges.
