Wedding Couple

Good Morning Everyone
This was an order for a couple who got married earlier this month, so it's now safe to share!
I was asked for an image of a wedding couple with a dog! I have to admit, it had me stumped for a while....in the end I used the gorgeous 'LOTV Wedding Couple' and the dog is from LOTV christmas stamp 'Skating Along'. They are actually walking in opposite directions so I had to stamp the dog on to tracing paper and flip him over!!
I've coloured them with promarkers and added a few liquid pearls. The background papers are from the very pretty 'Petal Fresh' pad.
I've used a MB Pipi butterfly die, a Die Namics petal die, a Tonic daisy punch for the border, and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. The pearls are from the Ribbon Girl and the ribbon from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Pretty Papers
Papertake Weekly - Punch it Out
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - Tic Tac Toe ( Pearls, Sentiment, Ribbon)
Sweet Stampin - Ribbon and Bows
Allsorts Challenge - Based on a Film Title:My Best Friends Wedding 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your comments and encouragement.

Clever idea of merging the two stamps Lorraine and it works so well. They must have been very pleased with it.9 Merging is much easier with digi images ... lol! Hugs Christine xx

A gorgeous wedding card and matching box Lorraine, I'm sure it was well received. Love that image and a clever solution to the problem of the dog facing the opposite way, will have to remember that.
