Paper Pretties Wednesday #255

I am entering this card into the challenge at Paper Pretties Wednesday using fancy folds

and at Word Art Wednesday #77  anything goes but must have an inspirational tone

It is the card that I have made for my daughter and her fiance who will be getting married in two weeks time, on the 10th May.  As well as the card I have made a matching box for it.  The fancy fold that I've used is to make this an easel card

To make the base card and all the layers using Spellbinder's Grande Labels #1 and my Grand Calibur

A closer look at the card.  The image is a digi stamp from The Paper Shelter coloured using Promarkers.  I've coloured the hair on the images as close as I can to Elizabeth's and Martyn's hair.  The papers are HOTP Soft Nostalgia papers,  I inked the edges of all the card and papers with a Memento ink pad.  I used Stickles glitter glue around the dress and veil and glossy accents on the groom's shoes.  The stick on pearls are from my stash.  The image panel has been raised on 3D pads

The card and box together and a closeup of the box below. The wording on the front of the box was computer generated using the same font and colour as their wedding stationery
