Not Just Cards Challenge blog - October Challenge

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

Good morning. It looks like it is going to be a bit of a wet start today. This will be a good excuse to get on with my Christmas cards. I made six yesterday.

The October Challenge started on the Not Just Cards Challenge blog yesterday and the theme is  Anything Goes. 

Back last summer my very good friend asked if I would make a tropical themed wedding card for her son and future daughter-in-law whose wedding would be in October. This was because their favourite place to go on holiday is the Caribbean. The wedding was last week so it is okay to show the card now.

I decided to make a big card. This one is just a bit smaller than A4. I did make a box for it. I printed the backing paper it was one of the designs that I have on the computer. The colours I used are the wedding colours. Though I didn't quite get the orange right. I printed the sentiment on the computer. My friend wanted a lot of details and this was the only way to achieve that. 

Why not join in with our challenge. Click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

I decided to cut the Just Married die from the Rustic Collection by Crafter's Companion in white. I cut the bride and groom from the rest of the die cut and matted it with the mint card. The sunset was an image I found on the internet. The frame was cut with the Double Pierced Circles by Creative Expressions. 

All the flowers, foliage and trees where cut with the dies from the Tropical set by Sizzix.

I added a butterfly cut with the Small Butterfly die set by John Next Door. 

I really did throw a lot of dies at this card. I hope the happy couple liked it. 

Enjoy the rest of the day. I will be back later with another Design Team make. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
