Midweek Magnolias - Weddings


Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Design team at Midweek Magnolias has a new challenge for you and our theme this week is "Weddings."

My card features the adorable Tilda Bride and Bridesmaid from the 2010 Wedding Collection.
I used some beautiful Magnolia papers from the collection as well and some new die cuts.
I distressed several elements with SU’s Crumb Cake ink pad; I love this color. The oval frame was layered on some cheese cloth for a soft delicate look. For my heart tag I added a “love” stamp and a double heart gold metal charm.
My image is colored in Copics and I added some Viva Décor pearls to the Bride’s necklace and hair. Both of my sweeties received a coat of stickles on their dresses and the Bride’s shoes and headpiece. I used Frosted Lace for the Bride and Stardust for the Bridesmaid.
I replicated similar elements for the inside of my card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
These are the Copics I used to color my image.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill; Xpress It
DPs – Magnolia
Flowers – Magnolia
Dies/Punches – Magnolia, Spellbinders, Memory Box 
Stickles – Ranger
Ribbon – American Crafts
Pearls – Viva Decor; Hero Arts

I hope I’ve inspired you to join us this week for our “Wedding Challenge.” Head over to Midweek Magnolias and check out the lovely DT’s artwork.

I’m entering this card in the Make It Monday - Linky Party, Anything Goes Challenge.

Thanks for popping in to visit and have a great week…

Hugz,
