Happy Monday,

Yesterday I went to the Wedding of a very dear friend, Phaedra. It was a great day. The service was Greek Orthodox (Phaedra's family is from Cyprus) and was steeped in tradition and a joy to be part of. The reception was a Caribbean family supper (Andrew's family is from Jamaica)-so full of spice and colourful foods!

Here is the happy couple with Phaedra's Mum and Dad:

In Greek weddings you pin money onto the happy couple in place of gifts-a great idea and a lot of fun. Here is Pheds full of money!

And now for today's card-I have been following the challenges on Retro Sketches for a few weeks but this week is the first time I have had a go at the challenge. I liked the sketch and saw it as another chance to use my new stamps from Papertrey-the garden of life.

I stamped the sentiment first then stamped the flowers. I used my new corner punch on the edges, added a few gems and inked the edges. This is my first, if basic, attempt at layering stamps. I like it and hope you do too!

I will also enter it into the 'Lots of Flowers' monthly challenge at great impressions stamps.
