My First Easel Card - A Wedding Card

 Hi everyone thank you for popping in at my blog today.
This week I made an easel card for the first time.
It is a Wedding card specially created for Carly-Ann from Charizma Cardz who is getting married to her best friend Rob in August.

I took part in the flowing challenges:

Sugar bowl Challenge – Sketch, and Girly & Feminine theme
Charisma Cardz Challenges – Wedding theme
 Digi Doodle Challenge -- Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmaker - Inky Fingers
Practical Scrapers - Border Punches and Decorative Edge Scissors
Hanna and Friends Challenge - Favourite Color
The ABC Challenge - Xtra Dimension
Creative Card Crew - An Easel Card
Tuesday Taggers - Wedding Day

 Here is my card, it is one of the cards I’ve enjoyed making the most!

Here is the Sugar Bowl sketch.
I think it’s a great sketch.
 This is the inside of the card.

 I used a Sugar Nellie stamp called First Dance. I glittered the groom’s hat, the bride’s veil and the bottom of the bride’s dress.

 I glaze and glitter this border and put two pearls on the flowers.

 I’ve made a scallop out of white, sparkling wedding paper, then put two different shade of pink papers on top of that and finally a silver lined ribbon and a string of rose pink pearls.

 In the right bottom corner and left top corner I put pearls too.

 I put three flowers with pearls in the centre at the left bottom corner.

I repeated the scallop-ribbon-pearl strip at the inside.
I also wrote Congratulations on the same shape as the stamp.

I printed a special message in the inside with two scallop-ribbon-pearl strip on both sides.

I got the tutorial of the easel card here.
I enjoyed making this easel card tremendously and I think it is very special.

While working on the card I was thinking how excited the bride, Carly-Ann and bridegroom must be counting down the days to their wedding day!
How they must be looking forward with great expectation to starting a life together as husband and wife.

A week ago I received a very special book from my best friend as an early birthday present - my 13th birthday.
The book’s name is Preparing to be His Help Meet - a book for girls.
A few years ago my Mother got the Wife’s edition - Created to be His Helpmeet.
This book changed my mother’s attitude in marriage, as well as the whole way of looking at my Dad, helping her understand who he is and how to be his help meet so he can be everything God wants him to be and accomplish on what he was called for on earth!
Most girls spend plenty of time planning for their wedding, but make no preparation for the weeks and years to follow.
Trail and error is not the best teacher when it comes to marriage. It is much less painful to learn beforehand what God has to say about your role as a help meet to that special man God will bring into your life.
I know I want to know everything possible of how to be a happy and content wife. This is what Preparing To Be A Helpmeet is all about and I enjoy it so much to read through this book written by a wise older woman.

While making this card I was praying that the special couple who receive this card will have a truely happily ever after marriage!

Have a blessed week
