Edit Blogger strikes again! ( Ding dong ding dong)

no it's not the door bell suppose to make you think weddings!

This post was scheduled as we had guests for lunch and so sorry I never checked or realised it didn't do what it was suppose to and now for some reason it has put it 2 posts back where it should have been, can't think what Blogger is up to.

Well another Sunday and another one stitch at a time challenge, boy these weeks just whizz by don't they. Summer seems to bring the herald of the wedding season and the church bells in our village just seem to be working overtime at at weekend those bell ringers arms must be aching.

Have you guessed the theme this week at OSAAT yet? We are showing off the collab set and the theme is weddings and sympathy. Now now don't be thinking they are the same thing , I know many a man and a few women who would say that after years of marriage they feel the need for sympathy as they wouldn't get as many years for murder but we are treating them as two different event, one a cause for celebration of new lives together and the other as a way of celebrating all the good things of someone who has sadly departed this world.

We were all given a fab image to play with and I received a fab wedding image from which you can get here. I decided to try and go a bit vintagy(not sure that's a real word well actually definitely sure).
I used a shaped die cut that I won as a prize from die cut dreams in deep cream and over-layed with cream vellum stamped with a lace image from the stampman embossed with moonglow moonbeams
powder. I used more vellum to create a heart by dry embossing over a meljen image . I then coloured the hands with promarkers and sakura glaze pens and finished with a gem. I then stuck the hands onto the heart.
I added  cream ribbon to one corner and a gold peel-off 'congratulations' to the opposite corner. I then used a plate stand to make a card stand to hold the card so it will stand upright.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
