Leap Around the World Blog Hop : Card #8

*PFEEWWWW!* This is going soooo S-L-O-W-L-Y. . . . WILL i EVER MANAGE TO DO THE 50 CARDS???

Well, at long last I could manage to hop over to Sue Colerick's - http://creativitybug.blogspot.com/2012/02/leap-around-world-blog-hop.html#comment-form - Thank you for the great sketch you chose Sue and thank you DebbieD for creating the sketch :-) Please visit Let's Scrap to find out how the blog hop works.

This is the sketch Sue chose for us to play with :

At the moment all brides-to-be here locally, are in the BLACK-mood! I used this sketch to make a sample wedding invitation for one of the brides.

I used Black handmade paper for the base. The Brides Couple is a handmade paper mould which I made in a clay mould and then painted the dried paper mould black, then dry brushed with metallic gold and white craft paint. This is a long procedure, but the results are great! The ribbon wraps around the card and a bow was tied to the right of the card.

A few close-ups - I did not do a little surprise on the inside as the space will be needed for the invitation details.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a little 'love' ;-)
