Sarah & Steve

Sarah & Steve are getting married - Sarah is my ex-sister in law and is the sister I never had, we've shared ups and downs, and I'm really pleased that she's getting remarried.  As its a second wedding and they have grown up children I wanted to do something different.  Sarah loves purples, and we sent her some roses for the garden as a wedding present, including one which is lilac (Special Event - not only a good colour, but an appropriate name).
The Purple is SU Wisteria Wonder, with a little Concord Crush & some glitter to highlight the butterflies.  My DH did ask why it was a grey card, but he's not great at colours, and it really is a nice subtle lilac/purple. The butterflies are stuck down the middle, so the wings look like they are flying off the card.  The die is Celtic Heart Cheery Lynn, which looks lovely and so much better in real life.  I tried white on neutral colours, but it didn't do the heart justice.  

Its been my first full week at work for a few weeks - youngest daughter has been having university visits, and we've been on tour - not quite John O'Groats to Lands End - we did Perthshire to Cornwall... but pleased to say she's got offered a place at her favourite.  And eldest daughter is home for Easter.  So all is well in our house.  

Am entering this in - which is butterflies -  its the end of March, just completed and photographed in time!
