When making a card, I usually select the image first. However, this time I chose the papers first. I saw these papers at The Happy Scrapper and just fell in love with them. I selected 4 patterns and somehow managed to use all 4. Next up was the image...I thought the papers would make a beautiful wedding card so I selected Wedding Bells by Saturated Canary. Her hair was sooooo much fun to color! It's my favorite part of the image actually. I pulled the color of her dress from the papers and decided to keep her hair light so as to keep the overall feel of the card soft. I also pulled the blue in the bow that is around flowers from the blue in the papers.
I used 2 new TH 'On The Edge' dies that I bought at The Happy Scrapper. I trimmed the left side of the card using the 'Scrollwork' die and the right side of the card using the 'Distressed Doily' die. I really love the effect it lends to the card. I distressed both a bit by rubbing the edges with a little DI in Tea Dye. It really helps to make them show up more on the card.
The flowers and corner piece are from WOC. The pearls are from my stash. Lastly, I scribbled a little doodle around the image with my .05 Multiliner to add a little bit of whimsy to the card.
That is it for me today! Thank you so much for stopping by. I do hope that you'll leave me a little note to let me know that you were here. I've really missed being here and hearing from you.
Take care and have a wonderful day!
