Wedding at the Belle Challenge

Hi everyone,   I hope your week is going well and that you're enjoying some great, almost summer, weather.   I had a fabulous day yesterday.  I went cross border shopping with a friend and it always includes a visit to the wonderful Buffalo Stamps craft store, JoAnn's Crafts and then lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.  I picked up some of the new Graphic 45 papers and a lot of bargains as well.....came home a very tired but happy shopper!  Can't wait to get crafty with my new stuff!

Today starts a new challenge at the Belle Challenge and the theme is Wedding.

I've used a favourite LOTV stamp called Wedding Couple that I coloured with Copics.   Sorry about the wonky photo. This one really gave me a challenge. After many tries, and different backgrounds,  I still was not able to capture the soft mint green colour very well. 

Here is the front of the easel card.  Aren't they a cute couple!

I've used a lot of dies for this card, starting with Marianne Designs Anja die for the base white outline then the scallop die for the green portion.  Using the largest die of the Spellbinders Small Cirles, I cut out the center of the green sheet and added the lattice which was cut using the Spellbinders Basic Lattice die.   I then added the green circle, I had removed, behind the lattice.  This layer was added with dimensions onto the white and green layer that was machine stitched using zig zag.
The Martha Stewart ribbons are both from my stash, with the exception of the white lattice ribbon on the inside.  That was a gift from a friend..thanks Helen.  Flowers are WOC and pearls from my stash as well. Sentiment is a rubber stamp that I'm afraid I don't know the mfg.

I intend to enter the following challenges:
Everybody-Art-Challenge - Wedding
Inky Chicks Challenge #6 - Love
MIM #145

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
