Wedding Card - Mojo Monday




I made this wedding card following a sketch on Mojo Monday. The scalloped card blank and bronze paper is by Craftwork cards, distressed with bronze cats eye ink. I stamped the flowers, from an old set by Stampin Up (mixed bouquet) in embossing ink then brushed with gold perfect pearls. The butterfly was cut at 2" from the storybook cartridge, first in gold and then cream, which I ran through the cuttlebug using swiss dots, and brushed with the bronze ink pad, then added a few swirls of pearls to finish it off. I made the tassel myself out of some metallic thread, thought it made a change from a bow.
I have had computer problems today, and spent the whole day sorting it out, I have been on the phone to Indian call centres for most of the day, then had to dash out and buy a new router. Now bear in mind that I have only a very hazy idea of what a router does, and Popeye the sailor man is still cavorting around the Greek Islands, so this was not an easy task. I discovered that standing looking helpless in the middle of the shop doesn't work any more (oh, where did my youth go, and when did I become invisible.....) Then I came home to call India again, only to find that I had bought the wrong thing. Back to the shop to give the spotty youth who served me a ********** (insert your own expletive here, it will be one I used I promise), and finally with much help from some patient internet thingy called a wizard (why not a witch I wonder..), got back online, but only the one computer works, the laptop should pick up the router signals and doesn't. I give up.
I have added a little search button to the blog, so if you are looking for a particular card, try typing in a word or two that you think describes it and it may bring it up for you, although I have my doubts about that - let me know if it works.

  17. Oh Enfys, its sounds as though you are having big problems with your computer/router. Your laptop may need some help getting it connected, my hubby tried to help his daughter, and it turned out the router was tuned into the wrong channel for the wireless, to much interference from other routers in the area, so maybe thats why yours doesnt connect even though it sees it.
    I love the unusual card, its gorgeous. Well done love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

  28. Enfys This card is amazing. Hope you're going to let Sue at Craftwork Cards see it. She would be thrilled to see her products used in such an elegant way. Computers-my internet went down and I tried everything short of calling the call centre but guess what-I grumbled to my brother in law and he said "unplug your wireless router and plug it back in again"-it worked!!! Hugs Betty-PS Men -sometimes you can't do without them!
