Wedding cards

These are some of the cards I've been making over the past few days. The cards shown here are part of my contribution to the display Jean and I will be having in April when we are both Artists of the month at the Tourist Centre in Sarina. Each month the centre has an artist of the month and for the whole of that month, you have a special display. I did it once before back in November 2007. It means a lot of work though to get enough items for a decent display.

These cards are made just using stamps, nesties labels, ribbon, gorgeous printed vellum, shimmer gold and silver c/s and then dressed with different embellishments.
I think they've turned out quite well. Here's hoping that other people think so too.

Very, very hot here again today. Glad to be in the air conditioning.
Thanks for taking the time to look.
