Wedding Couple

Hi again, the cold weather has set in for a couple of days. We had bucketing rain this afternoon and into the evening, so the wood fire was again lit. Tomorrows forecast is pretty grim too, so will be rugged up and scurrying from place to place, LOL.
I have a new follower, so welcome to Susan, great to "see" you here and I hope you enjoy visiting from time to time.
I had craft this morning, it was a shortened session due to them having a luncheon to support cancer research. It is usually a morning tea and a donation, but this time they changed it and also had a chocolate making demo as well. I packed up and left at the end of the session because I wanted to go to Mum's and dye her hair. I wasn't all that interested in the chocolate making and I didn't feel like organizing a plate of food to take for the luncheon, so was quite happy not to stay.
Not sure how Mum's hair turned out as it was still wet when I left, so hopefully it wasn't too dark for her.
When I got home, the postie had been and yeah!!! left a packet with a couple of new nestie dies that I bought through e-bay. I spent about an hour playing around with them and have used one on my card tonight.
Onto sharing my card,
I used SU Chocolate Chip for the cardbase and folded it tent style. I then used a piece of SU Olive Green and distressed the edges with Early Espresso ink. I also did the edges of the cardbase. I then cut 3 pieces of a coffee coloured card and punched the edges with a MS punch and then ink distressed these as well and then layered on top of the olive green. I cut a piece of DP from a ministack called "Songbird Collection" by Prima and distressed that as well and adhered that onto the card as well. I then cut a nestie shape in the coffee colour and distressed and added a Chocolate Chip Floral Oval diecut (this is the new one). I traced around a deckled edged oval die (the ones in the pack weren't quite the right size) and then cut it out and stamped the bride and groom image, not sure who made this as it was a single clear stamp bought on e-bay. You guessed it, yep, I distressed the edges of that too!!! I then made some rolled roses using scraps of the DP and punched a few leaves in the Old Olive. To finish off, I coloured some white pearls with a brown marker and added to the top right hand side of the card. I then decorated the inside of the card with more distressed card, a piece of Old Olive and then a piece of the coffee coloured card which I punched one edge. The sentiment is from a set of stamps by Creative Expressions called "Bride & Groom".
