Bridal Wishes

It's a new day...it's a new card...

Just me being silly and for some reason I am hearing Michael Buble`s voice running through my mind right now.


I was invited to a Bridal Shower yesterday and this is the card I came up with.


I was wanting to make a card with a bride or a bridal gown on it and not owning such a stamp or digi, I made my own bridal dress.  I free handed the shape of the dress and embossed the bottom with a swirly design and punched the bottom edge of the dress.  I left the top plain and added some green ribbon and a pink flower with a green gemstone in the middle.  The flowers were purchased eons ago at Michael's in the bridal dept and I just used my SU marker to color the white flower pink. The colors of the dress match the wedding colors.  I added the sentiment to the card base and adhered the dress with foam dimensionals.  Simple and elegant at the same time.  This was a fun card to create!

Recipe:
Stamps - Studio G
Paper - White card stock
Coloring - Pretty in Pink marker (SU!)
Misc - Devine Swirls EF, ribbon, Bridal flower (Michael's), green gemstone (Recollections), Apron Lace punch (Fiskars) 

Challenges: 

Sunshine & Smiles to You!
