Bridal Shower

Happy Saturday everyone,

Hope this finds you well and enjoying a lovely Summer weekend.

Last Saturday I attended a bridal shower for my Cousin's Son's fiancée and what a fun time. 
The maid-of-honor and bridesmaids did a fabulous job of creating a memorable day for everyone, especially the bride-to-be.  It was my first time meeting her and she is lovely....can't wait for the wedding.
I wanted to make a special card to accompany the gift and here is what I came up with.

I've used an ADFD digi called Wedding Veil, coloured with Copics, fussy cut and added a piece of white netting over the veil.  Rhinestones placed where the dots on the image are located and yes, the not-so-straight sewing is silver thread.

The tag is a Magnolia die, sentiment done in Word. 
Flowers from Michaels...a Recollection product.
Leaves are a PoppyStamps die called Gentle Leaf
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder
Silver netting cut from a 12x12 sheet from Michaels
Sequin ribbon from Fabricland
Two dies used behind the image are SB Radiant Rectangles

 Box was made 6 3/4"  x 6 3/4"
 White paper was embossed with SU Elegant Bouquet embossing folder then matted on pale blue cardstock, then added to Pearlized white DP.  White string pearls were added around the edge.  I use api's Crafter's Pick incredibly tacky glue - great for sticking flowers on as well.

I will be entering the following challenges:
  1. Papertake Weekly Challenge: Old swiss dot folder, New leaf die, Blue flower.
  2. Make it Monday #148
  3. Charisma Cardz Challenge #27 - No designer papers
  4. Creative Fingers Challenge - Anything Goes
  5. Sister Act Card Challenge #15 - Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by,
Pat K xx

What a wonderful day, Pat, thanks for sharing it with us. Your card and box look gorgeous, and I imagine the bride was smitten by it, and will keep it in her wedding album. My favorite part is the tulle over the image from the veil downward - but your whole card is just beyond extravagantly beautiful. Just lovely. I am always inspired visiting your blog - you probably get tired of hearing me say that, but it is true.

Your card looks fantastic with all the different textures and feminine details! The image is so beautiful and I love the die cut frame you've made for it. The name and date on the front makes your card so much more personal - a really nice detail.
