FOR YOU ...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #28}

My niece, Liesl got married to her sweetheart Mario on 11 August 2012 at Serenity Forest Eco Reserve near the Kruger National Park (South Africa).  Yours truly was the official wedding photographer. I have posted a few wedding pics below.

This week our theme for Challenge #28 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is a Anything Goes.  I used a Bugaboo digi image called You Flower.  You can find it here.   

Once again using my favourite step card technique and created a wedding card for Liesl and Mario.  The design papers Basic Grey.  

For the third time only, I tried my hand at paper piecing and paper pieced the red flowers on the image.  Printed the image once on white cardstock and then a second time on red cardstock.  Then I cut out the flower sections from the red cardstock and mounted them with foam tape on top of the printed image on the white cardstock.

Hope you like and will all play along this week and we cant wait to see what you create with our easy Anything Goes theme. So hop on over to Tammy's Scrapin Corner and link your creation to Challenge #28.
