Wedding Project for Carly's Wedding

Morning Peeps,

I'm travelling on me little holiday at the moment so this is a scheduled post.  I've been on a mission to get this special exploding box finished for Carly from Charisma's wedding which is fast approaching this Saturday.  I have just finished it in the nick of time and will be on its way to Carly by the time you read this, well if I've remembered to take it with me to post on the way that is........

I apologise for the amount of pictures, but I just kept snapping:-

This is the outside of the exploding box.  The papers I have used have an irridescent finish to them so are very shinmmery.  They are by Kay & Co.  All matting is on Bazill c/s.

The is a picgture of the lid.  The doily is edged with a fluid chalk lilac inkpad and lots of diamond stickles added.  The edging of the box is lace with added white pearls and the majority of flowers used are from Wild Orchid Crafts and with added Martha Stewart Frond Punch Leaves.

Here it is all opened out.

Here's the main focus, the little bride and groom coloured using copics.

Here's a panel where I have computer generated the text message to Carly and Rob. Edged with ink pads and diamond stickles added for yet more sparkle, I do love a bit of sparkle and it is a wedding afterall.

This panel is another Magnolia Stamp and then I have added the "Congratulations" text from another stamp, just can't remember the brand at the moment.

Another panel using the Martha Stewart Heart punch, tied with a silk and organza lilac ribbon from stash and a little pearl to the centre.

I was trying to capture how sparkly this is with all it's glitz, but I think you may just have to believe me.

I think from this one you can see the irridescent sparkle of the papers and the diamond stickles!

Good luck Carly and Rob for Saturday and if you are half as happy as me and my Husband after 24 year's of marriage, it's gonna be a good one!  Enjoy your Day!

I have entered this creation into the following challenges:-

Charisma - Card for Carly
BunnyZoe - Summer (wedding time)
Pollycraft - Fit for a Princess

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to reading all your comments.  Have a good week.
