Gothic Arch Wedding Card

Well did you see the launch of the new Polka Doodles Cherry Blossom CD on Create & Craft? Weren't the DT samples lush? If you bought the cd, leave me a comment when you've made something with it, so that I can pop across and take a look!

If you didn't see the show then you will have missed this little card that I created. As you are all aware the turnaround time on samples is very tight and I cut everything by hand, so if there's a mistake I have very little time to rectify things. This card didn't quite turn out as I expected and after I'd finished it I had another idea for it, but just haven't had time to execute it! I think it will be a project for later in year!

Anyway, this is my card (apologies for the large number of pictures, but I wanted to show you the detail on it). I've used the gorgeous leaf ribbon from Crafty Ribbons to embellish the front of the card and the fantastic Cherry Blossom CD for the rest of it. The Gothic Arch was a chipboard shape from Tando which I simply resized as I needed.

This one shows of all of the sparkle and shine
