Love Bird Wedding Card

This is the card that I came up with to showcase one of the stamps in my thankyou blog candy. I have used Love Birds by Carol Bateup and a sketch to show it off.
I have coloured with my promarkers in a variety of pink shades.
I have added some charms to the bunting which was chalked around the edges first before punching holes in the top portion and threading with metallic thread through each triangle and each charm.
I also made the small flowers from 4 circles (2 for each flower) cut from one of last years christmas cards, each were then put together with a sparkly brad and sprayed with water, then I scrumpled them up and allowed to dry. When dry I fixed with a double sided pad, and added sparkly glitter glue.
I will definitely use this sketch again, I really like the finished effect. This card is for one of my cousins who is getting married this May.
The image below is of the charms that I am adding to my blog candy, please go and add your comment to have a chance to win.
