Beautiful bride

Can you believe it's Friday already, which means another Bellariffic challenge.  This weeks challenge was all about your favourite 'girl' image.  Well I had a hard time deciding because I love them all.
But, since I received my latest release order last week I had some new Uptown images that were just screaming at me to be coloured.  Sooooo.. with summer here, means lots of weddings, I pullled out
Uptown Girl Brigitte the Bride, and oh she is beautiful!!

I wanted to keep this pretty simple and elegant as a bride should be.  I started by stamping her on bella's bestest paper, coloured her hair and bouquet with copics, then cut her out using an oval spellbinder die. I then layered this onto another piece of white c/s cut out using spellbinder floral ovals.  My base is using Grand Labels Twenty Three spellbinder die.  DP is by Teresa Collins - sweet afternoon.

I finished this off with some pink satin ribbon, pearls, and lots and lots of glimmer mist glitter. So what do you think?

Be sure to stop over at Bloggabella to see what the other babes and sistahs have done.  Leave a comment and you have a chance to win some bella bucks!

Next week we are back to a sketch.  We would like you to play along, all you have to do is colour up a bella image, use the sketch layout provided below, then email your card to Emily by thursday night. See simple - and you also will have a chance to win some bella bucks!

Thanks for stopping by today, have yourself a wonderful weekend!

Stunning my friend! I was so thrilled when I saw this image in the last release. She is exactly what I've been dreaming of. Your simplicity yet attention to curvy detailing and subtle coloring make this card super elegant! I love it!

One of my favorite all time cards ever Pauline. Perfect image. Love all the white in contrast with the dark hair, the sparkle and the beautiful paper & ribbon. {{{sigh}}}

Pauline - this one raises the bar. Sheer jaw-dropping perfection! It's quite evident that you nailed this challenge. Yup, killed it dead. I'm just swooning over your bride card and all it's yumminess. Sigh...
