Two hearts joined in love

Adding this post today because a) I don't know how to set posts up to post later. b) I will be taking mum and dad for more tests, doctor appointments etc c) If I don't do it now I will forget.

I had coloured in this beautiful image from A Day for Daisies a couple of weeks ago and was wanting to make it into a card. Its of course for a wedding, don't have any coming up therefore I needed an excuse. Found a Challenge.

Here's the card I made.

This one I added so you can see the silver card behind the image also cause it shows the sparkle in the little buckle, I love that buckle.

Okay this photo shows the colouring which was with copics. I'm new to trying to use grey for shadow on white and got a bit carried away but still liked the picture when I finished it so decided to use it anyway. I stamped with this wonderful sentiment. 

Then of course I made a mistake. I had some of those little peal off hearts made from miniature  little gems and thought ohhh I could stick one over the other like joined hearts. No! No! No! It looked cheap and tacky and I fiddled and fiddled then decided it had to come off and of course so did the card stock. 

I didn't want to cut the panel down and looked through my stash and saw these beautiful metal buckles that looked stylish. Hunted through the new used ribbon stash and found some lovely shear ribbon threaded it through twice and joined on the back panel. This meant I had to add dimension foam tape to lift the panel a little but it worked and I was happy.

Would like to enter this in  Just Add Ink #263 Just Add....Weddings

and also at Less is More :Week 225 Recipe:Use Metal

The Buckle on the card is a metal one, just not sure if its too busy.

Okay heres hoping I have followed the rules and all is fine.

Great recovery, we'd never have known if you hadn't said! Lovely card. And to schedule posts it's really easy. When you're in draft mode, you just select schedule from the right hand menu underneath the labels section and select a day and time, press publish and it'll wait until when you've selected. Xx

You did a great job of coloring, Aileen! That's a romantic image I've never seen before and I love it, especially with the cover-up buckle! (Smart!) I see Ruthich has told you how to schedule a post. It's nerve-wracking to hit "publish" once you entered the time and date, but that's what you have to do. It doesn't publish. It will go away for a second like it does when you save and then pop up with your lists of posts. Next to that post it will say "scheduled." You can still go in and edit it several times before the scheduled date. I hope all goes well with mum and dad! Hugs, Darnell

Well done on your grey shading of the white dress, I think you did a great job. And the little buckle in the corner is a great touch.
Thanks for sharing with us.
