Hearts and Flowers

The Rosie-Dee challenge blog has the theme of Occasions this month and this week's celebration is "Weddings", so I've gone all mushy and made this frothy over-the-top number!

This started life in my head as an all-white layering exercise, but in the way these things do it changed slightly in the making.
I've layered up diffeent sizes of Labels 1 (Nestabilities), and used the Cuttlebug Tiny Hearts embossing folder for the top one, and for the large square/
The hearts (Cuttlebug) are three layers of white card, plus two of the decorative upper layer, which I've adhered in an off-set way to get more twiddly bits! Inked with a couple of the darker pink shades from a Cats Eye Queue
The scrolls are Spellbinders - three layers of card for each, then inked with silver.
Gorgeous cotton lace from Charmed Cards and Crafts
Tiny pink and silver gems from the Anita's Gem Wheel and Ribbon from Ribbon Oasis as usual!

This next card is one I made to submit for Rosie-Dee a few weeks ago and just didn't got round to posting or linking

It was for the Turquoise and Chocolate colour themed challenge/ I thought I might as well add it here since I'ver rediscovered it.
The papers are Dream Street "Rue"
Flowers; various Primas
Tag: Bosskutz mini tags die
Ribbon; Ribbon Oasis

it might be over the top Kathy! But it is full of gorgeous detail! Love the fact that it still keeps its simplistic look!
