Royal Wedding

This is the very first card I received for the Royal Wedding card swap I hosted at Splitcoaststampers. It was created by Sheila, who, if you can believe it, just participated in her first swap.
Sheila used the Lili of the Valley wedding couple, stamped on water colour paper and hand coloured with water colour pencils and a blending pen.
Phenomenal work and what a delight for me to receive Sheila's first ever swap.
This card was created by Debi. I actually have this stamp set but never realized the immense versatility of Asian Artistry. If you look back in April of this year you will see the last item I created with this stamp set. I love what you have done and will now try to think outside the box.
This card was created by Pam. The black and white colours really make the pink flowers in the brides hair and the bow really Pop. I'm not sure if you can tell by the photograph but along the train of the dress glitter was very carefully added.
Diane made this heart shaped bride and groom from a punch. One of the things I am really impressed with, which I am afraid you may not be able to see, is that the grooms tux was punched in a black paper which is matt on one side and glossy on the other which makes the lapels stand out and give it the true formal wedding day tuxedo look.
True elegance. Go ahead and admire the precision cutting and the tone on tone loveliness. Ahhh, delightful!
I'm sure Karen knows how much I am attracted to butterflies lately. Just love them and can't get enough of them. This card could take you any where, from the engagement party, the bridal shower or the wedding. Versatility plus!
Krissie sent these and let me tell you when I opened it up at the post office I thought it was a hoot. It got passed around and everyone had the same reaction: They loved it! You can see the punch is the same as Diane's but this is a completely different couple in completely different wedding dress. The grooms tie is a knotted ribbon and the bride has a traditional veil.
Lastly is Angie's card. There are 6 layers here on this vanilla and black card but the simplicity and elegance shine through. The scalloped circle wedding bells are on pop dots.

Looks like I need a thesaurus for lovely and elegant! Thank you ladies for participating in this swap.
