Here comes the bride.....

...in a challenge card for Colour Throwdown #125 and Delightful Challenges - Celebration theme, using the sketch challenge from Annabelle Stamps #ABSC033.



I have kept it very simple, and not inked the edges to keep it soft and romantic. The stamped image is coloured with Copics and I was limited in suitable colours, as I didn't want it to dominate. I originally cut a circle fram and then a rectangle label frame for the bride, but they overpowered the layout, so I ended up just trimming after layering onto the pink card. - so, no circle BUT the sketch did get the MOJO flowing! The DP has had the corners rounded with a punch.  I embossed the sentiment on the label and I added lots of pearls as well as some Stardust Stickles on the bride's veil and flower centres. 

Stamps:  Shirley's2Girls Clear Stamp -Bride (image and sentiment)
Paper and Card:  SU card Pear Pizzazz, Kraft and Blushing Bride; scrap of SU DP (from a while ago)
Ink:  Memento close to Cocoa; Versamark
Other:   Stardust Stickles, pearls, clear EP; dimentionals and double sided tape, Copic pens for colouring image

Beautiful card Susan. Love the image and how you pulled it all together. Like the way you framed the bride - same with Cutie Patootie. I have to start thinking outside the box - don't own any Nestabilities but why not draw my own?
