Mr And Mrs mini book

I am off to a friend's daughters wedding on the 9th of August and I wanted to make something other than a card  for the happy couple ....so I made this pretty mini book for them to add a couple of their favourite  pics from their big day. The mini book came already embossed and is white , not the off white it looks in the pic[despite the light box ]
 The Mr and Mrs stamp is from SU. The panel it is sitting on is a  die from the Sue Wilson Valencia die set. The flowers are from mulberry crafts. .The flourishes are dies from memory box.The assorted ribbons ,gems diamante slider and cute diamante wedding rings all came from Meiflower crafts.
The box lid is decorated using  Grande Nestability shapes an A4 embossing folder and the lettering are individual little stamps I bought from the pound shop last week...what a bargain they are.
Inside the book is decorated using various nestability dies and poems from a wedding book I had from a charity shop. All the heart shaped dies are from cheery lynn

Coffee and cream

Hi all
Here is another card I will be making at my demo on Friday ..I kept the colour scheme to two colours to keep it  plain and  simple ,so it showed off the die cuts ..The handmade flowers/ leaves are  made using the Sue Wilson classic rose die set.. The bow die is also from Sue Wilson.  The flourish was a free bee from a mag a while ago. The cut out detail is a die from memory box called piestra tile. The stamped butterflies are part of  a stamp set I won at paper pretties.. The pearls are from flourishes with a bling.The linen cardstock is from Limetree crafts.
