wedding gown

I'm back today to share another card with you.  Being that it's Spring, and summer around the corner I'm trying to get ahead on some wedding/shower cards.

Today's card focuses on just that with this image called Wedding Gown Circle.

I wanted to do this in soft mauves/purples, even though it is hard to match this colour tone, due to the fact there are some many purple hues out there, but I did manage to find some paper that would work.
DP is from Memory Box.  The image was stamped on bella's bestest paper and then I applied a bit of mauve around the dress using copics - BV0000, & BV000. Spellbinder dies - circles, scallop circles,
parisian motifs, and grand square scallop.

Finishing touches - stitching, lots of glitter, mauve rhinestones, pearls, chiffon ribbon (oh so pretty) and I also stamped and extra image and cut out the bow, then layered it on the dress using pop dots.

Well that's it for today.  I hope your have a great Saturday!! Thanks for stopping in.

Hi Pauline! Oh what a beautiful wedding card. You did a smashing job coordinating the colours and various shades of purple with that adorable DP. Needless to say the dress and organdy bow knocked my socks off. Er, um, next time you plan on knocking my socks off like that - a little warning please?

Doing a quick scroll through of all the fabulous things I've missed since I don't get out as much as I used to... had to do a double take on this pretty card. What a lovely stamp and papers and gorgeous fluffy bow!
