Found an old box picture with some rubbiah arrangement thing inside up in the loft at the weekend..Hubby was gonna chuck it but I decided to have a play

Picture of me and hubby on our wedding day

I cut the photo mount myself them distressed it with antique linen and walnut stain distress ink. I then printed the wording onto card and cut around it in a heart shape by hand. This has been distressed in the same way .Then I went around the edges with a swirl stamp and added gold embossing powder. I made the flowers using cuttlebug dies and an xcut punch. I stamped writing onto them and distressed those to.
Printed out piccie and stuck it all together.
The verses reads:
When you have nothing left but love
Then for the first time
you become aware
that love is enough

I wish I hadn`t stuck it back into the frame before I took the photos because you cannot see all the detail but I can`t take it apart now as I had to tape the back on.

Hope you like
Kerry x
