First wedding of the year...

This card was for a wedding I went to on Saturday in Wetherby - it was a beautiful day all round and they make a gorgeous couple. Unfortunately I was ill all day Sunday and am still being sick on and off now- possible started by the amount of alcohol imbibed(!) but it seems to have kick started my hormonal sickness which has been an ongoing problem for me since I was about 15. Fingers crossed it's a one-off!
Anyway, I'm entering this card into this weeks Passion for ProMarkers challenge which is to make your own backing paper using ProMarkers. I was a bit stuck on this until I saw Maria's great tutorial on the Weekend Workshop. She used the blender pen to lift colour to make a spotty dress. So, my backing paper was coloured with Aubergine, then I used the Blender pen to draw swirls over the Aubergine. I then accented this with the Silver metallic pen and then spritzed the whole thing with Cosmic Shimmer mist. The image is from DigiStamp Boutique.

Hope you've all had a lovely weekend in the sun! x
