Basic Grey - Anything Goes

We have an Anything Goes theme for you at Basic Grey Challenges this time which was perfect as I needed to make a wedding card for my dear friend, Sue, who is getting married to Malcom today!!  Sadly, I can't be at the wedding, happily because I am in New York!!!  Hope you have a fabulous day Sue and Malcolm!

In many of the Basic Grey pads, you get some pages that are quite neutral and not patterned and I've used some from several packs including Sweet Threads, Sultry and Little Black Dress.  The image is from Mo Manning, called Married - they look so joyous!!!
My flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House.  The image is cut and layered with a Go Create die , the corners, Marianne, and the envelope is a Sizzix die.  The flourishes are PaperTrey Ink as is the sentiment. There's also a Magnolia die border thrown in for good measure - I think I've used just about every make of die out there!!!
You can just see above that I've also added some liquid pearls around the image and on her veil, and there's also some touches of glitter on her tiara and bodice - also on her ring if you can see that closely!!

We have our regular sponsor with us, Simon Says Stamp, with their regular awesome $25 voucher up for grabs to one lucky winner - just remember to use a Basic Grey product and tell us what it is.

You can check out the fabulous cards from my Basic Grey teamies here- you won't be disappointed!
Thanks for popping in!!
