It's All About Numbers And A Sunflower Wedding Card

Hello lovely peeps! I hope you are all doing well.

I am slowly getting back into the blogging routine so hopefully you will hear from me much more often, now :).

And so I'm back today with a really exciting (for me) offering :). I have been invited to 'guest' over at Country View Challenges blog to play along with their September challenge which is Numbers.

This lovely invitation and privilege came to me after my Cherish Yesterday card received their DT's special mention from the June's challenge. Yaaaay! Thank you so much to Chris and the Team xx.

My project today is a wedding card I made a special couple who celebrated their Big Day in a beautiful setting of Château de Javarzay in Chef-Boutonne in France. As it happened it was also my birthday on the same day - what a way to celebrate! :)

The main focus of my card is this fab vintage wedding certificate from the BazzillBasicsPaper Heritage collection. I hand-written the details & the wedding date to personalise the card for the happy couple :).

The area near Chef-Boutonne is known for its sunflower fields so there was no surprise that these gorgeous blooms were chosen as the flowers of the wedding. And no surprise that they also sneaked into my design, too :). I stamped the flowers, coloured them with watercolour pencils and set them in a layer of Glossy Accents to make them stand out more.

I also added some white rub-ons to reinforce the 'Numbers' theme of the CVC challenge.

If you love sunflowers as much as I do, keep your eyes peeled! On Monday I will be sharing a tutorial for a scrapbook layout I made as a keepsake from the weeding. And a whole 'field' of sunflowers will be guaranteed!

Thank you again Chris and the Team for the invitation to play along! xx
