Wedding Horseshoe and Card

On Tuesday I was asked by a Mum at school "How long does it take to make a Wedding card?"
Luckily I had a couple of spare evenings.....
The horseshoe is for their youngest (2 years) very cute son to give the bride.
It just so happened the challenge this week on Trimcraft is a Wedding project - so just ideal!
The Horse shoe is made with silver wire to form the base. I then threaded irredescent bugle beads onto the stems of tiny roses and wound them round the horseshoe.
I tied white irredescent hearts on using double ended tiny flower hearts. Added some irredescent heart beads on little wire drops. Then wound the fibre round (which I think was from the Basic Grey Cupcake selection)
I used my Pazzles quite alot for my card - still trying out different things with this.
The background heart paper is Coredinations Whitewash(love that paper) that I embossed on my Pazzles with a heart frame I created myself and then lightly sanded and inked the edges.
The "Wedding Day" lettering is also cut on the Pazzles using Basic Grey Eva paper and some Bazzil cardstock. I used a hammer white cardstock for the base , and some coredinations purple gemstone for my first layer. All layers were inked round edges.
Flowers and Butterflies are handcoloured leather using H2O's then cut with Cuttlebug and layered with eyelet set in centre.
Wedding Day is raised on foam tape, flowers are glued in place and then gemstones glued in centre. Writting in a combinaton of rub ons and White Sakura.
