Another challenge - which I tied into a card order!!

Good morning, just a quick post before I bundle youngest son into the car to go and collect eldest son from pre-school then head out to nanny and grandad's for some lunch before collecting my eldest child from senior school - phew, Monday's are always non-stop in this house!!

Anyway, onto the card for today. I was asked by my sister-in-law to make a wedding card for a collegue of hers from work. Having no idea what colours the bride was going to wear I pulled out my stamps and found a fab papermania stamp from a goody bag and I chose what I consider to be a lovely shade of aqua ink.

Sent my sister-in-law a photo message of the finished card to be told it's the same colours as the wedding invitation she received - how's that for a coincidence!!

A few diamantes and pearls, a martha stewart punch border finished it off nicely.

I'm going to enter this card into and for their Thursday challenges.
