Fairy Tale Wedding

Good morning Monday!

Do you have many weddings to attend this summer? Here is a beautiful wedding card for you! I just love this horse and carriage die template from Tattered Lace! This card is not difficult, but it does take a bit of time because of all the layers. Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!
