Monday Mojo Challenge

This is my entry for the Monday Mojo Challenge this week. I used their fab sketch and made this card for a friend who is attending a wedding early in March. She asked me to make her a card for the happy couple and requested something to place the money in, as this is what they are giving them as a gift.  I came up with this little number, hope you like it.
The gorgeous DP is from Upikit International.  I used Mo's Digital Stamp for the image and coloured in with Copics.  All the other embellies ie pearls, beads and rhinestones I purchased from Paola.  The sentiment is a wooden stamp purchased from Charmaine's.
As you can see I created an envelope to place the monetary gift in and wrapped ribbon around to keep it closed. [I am really not an expert in this field... as you know, I am also still learning, so be kind :)  My friend Paola gave me a link to some wonderful tutorials which I still need to visit thoroughly to learn these new techniques.]  Gives a nice presentation of having to open the gift, don't you think?  Cut the paper for the message with a nestie - gives it a nice bridal feel too.

A final pic for you to see the sparkle on the dress.  A very happy client, she was thrilled with it.  Hope you are too, all comments are welcome... thanks for popping by, hugs Sharon
