Purple Wedding


This was made for an order and I was of course very pleased to be asked to make a purple Wedding card. The backing paper is Papermania Henbury Lane and I have used another of the diecuts I bought from Facebook, Cheery Lynn I think. I have alo used my fave banner die from La La Land, a variety of Wild Orchid flowers, and a charm and bow from stash. I mainly use baker's twine for charms these days but wanted to keep this silver to match the bow and sparkly paper. Even with the right tools I still find attaching the chain to the split ring and getting the ring closed tight enough quite a struggle but I got there in the end.
