Wedding Wishes for William and Kate! :)



How exciting that the Royal Wedding is this week!  I remember watching in wonderment when Charles and Diane were wed and will be equally excited to see this blessed event!   Dh and I toured Europe last summer and one of the places we visited was London - the girls talk excitedly of being at Westminister Abbey, the wedding site!  {see below for a bunch of W.A. Pictures!}

Along the lines of wedded bliss, dh and I celebrated our 18th Wedding Anniversary on Easter Sunday :)  I'm truly blessed and know that I am so lucky to have such an amazing husband :)



My card for you today is a fun fold just with a creative twist ~ it semi-joy fold ;)  The image is a new FBD release called "Beautiful Bride" and just in time for the June weddings!  I added the bride to the inside of the card and matched the flowers to the ones in her veil and bouquet.  I chose the soft blue as a backdrop color for the "something borrowed, something blue" but gave it a little pop of pink floral in the front.  Finishing touch with some pearls and a computer generated sentiment and voila!

This card is entered into these challenges:
  The Pixie Cottage - Weddings
 Oldie but a Goodie - #17 Fit for a Princess

I wish you happiness abundant today and hope you can join us this week at the Fresh Brewed Designs Challenge Blog

Blessings!
~Kelly~

Some pictures from Westminister Abbey - Such a magnificent place - it stirred my soul to be there!







 While my dd listens to the audio tour, my son strikes a pose ;)

  5. This is so pretty, just love those colors and the image. How exciting for the kids to have been in London and now to see the wedding. Love that you made a card for the occasion. It has taken me a few weeks to get my routine down, to study, craft and keep the house running, but think I sort of have it. At least I am now tired when I go to bed :)

  25. Kelly, Fantastic card! Love the folds you did. Wonderful color choices. Your photos remind me of my own trip to England several years ago and touring Westminster Abbey. What delightful memories I have of that trip. Thanks for refreshing them! Also, thanks for all your wonderful comments and support while I was a guest designer this month. I've enjoyed every minute of it and I'll be following your blog. See you for the challenges each Wednesday. Hugz

  28. Such beautifully detailed card, Kelly! Your front is non-traditional wedding, but classic and lovely. The inside flowers compliment everything so nicely.

  29. What a wonderful card with such lovely papers! Happy anniversary to you and your husband!!
    What great photos, too! I laughed at the Yorkie. Everybody here knows they are my favourite bars (especially the raisin and biscuit ones). Whenever I go to England, I stock up!
