Wedding cake...

We spent the weekend in Montreal for a friend's son's wedding (how did we get to going to friends kids weddings?!)  We were lucky enough to see Paul McCartney on Thursday night while we were there; and he was amazing!  How someone at his age can sing for over 2 hrs solid without a break (or even water) boggled my mind.  I don't think anyone said he missed one of their favourite songs - it was so great!  Then we spent 2 days wondering Montreal; I have only been back once since we moved lived there & it was in the dead of winter and the weather was perfect; how we miss those days & nights of summer in the East!!



Now onto my card!  I decided to ink up LULU's Wedding Cake for the occasion.  I didn't know the wedding colours so I chose to go with black & white - and I guessed right!!  The image is stamped on bella's bestest paper & I did only a little shading on the cake itself with c00, c0.  I coloured the roses with r35, r37, r39 and paper pieced them onto the cake then added some glamour dust glitter to the image.

I went through my stash of paper and came across My Minds Eye's Love Letters, which was perfect.  I added some sting of pearls to finish the card.

Don't forget this weeks Bellariffic Friday's challenge is this great sketch.  Last weeks cards were amazing; you are making it hard on us babes to choose!!  Email your cards to Em by Friday & please include your blog info on the card -

Have a fantastic day & thanks for stopping by

What a task cutting all the roses out to piece onto LuLu's cake but it sure was worth it - this is stunning.

Dana, this is simply elegant. The details are amazing. Just wanted to say thanks for the comment on Mini Bella Madison's card on Crafty Cath's blog. She worked on these all by herself with no help picking paper, measuring, or cutting from mom, who was too busy sleeping. She loved that you left her some love.
