My new Whiff of Joy stamps arrived last week and I’ve been itching to use them. But its Wimbledon fortnight which means the TV is on all afternoon except for yesterday as we had Centre Court seats. They should have provided binoculars with the tickets as we were almost in the back row but we had a great time.
Andy Murray finished his match quite quickly this evening so I was able to finish this card. One of my work colleagues is getting married next month so this card is for him and his wife-to-be. I embossed the Coredinations strip behind the image and sanded it. This is the first time I’ve tried this and I really like the effect. And I had only intended to use my stickles on the brides veil but I wanted more sparkle so highlighted the carriage flowers as well.
