Bridal Shower Card

SSCC #33 Is  Love or something symbolizing Love
 CLP April challenge is this sketch:
My Niece's Bridal Shower is tomorrow so I decided to use segments of her invitation and make a shower card.  Here is Ashley's bridal shower card:

I used their photo from the invitation as the focal image which was matted with SB rectangle scallop nestie and given dimension with foam tape.  The sentiment was cut from the invite with SU Modern labels punch and popped up on a SB Fancy tag.  The papers are Recollections Precious Metals cardstock (have beautiful shimmer to them) and DCWV Love and Wedding Stack.  Tools used to create the layers:  MS Deco fan punch, Fiskars Circles corner punch, SB Scallop circle and rectangle nesties, SB fancy tag and CB embossing folder.  On circle scallop~used WOJ spring swirls stamp with glamour dust sprinkled upon :)  Accented with ribbons, BG rub ons and rhinestones, Wild Orchid Rose glistened with crystal stickles, tulle and Modern Romance floral spray and of course a LOVE charm :))

Inside of card ~~top half :) Used MS, SU and Fiskars punches again along with crystal stickles along top border and around edges of hearts. Added monogram letters --sorry little hard to see:))
Inside bottom half of card:  Once again cut out the designer dress from the invitation~~added tulle (again doesn't show up very well) behind for a glam look and popped up to give dimension! 
Few more close ups :D

Am excited for the shower and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! Smiles :o))

Sweet Demure In Pink

I made a card with the Sugar Nellie image: "Demure" by Elisabeth Bell.  Just love EB stamps!! 
Entries for: 
Stamp Something-- Pink somethings ~~April 9
Simon Says-- It's So Distressings ~~ April 7
Basic Grey week 17--  Sketch by Martine ~~April 17

Soft and Sweet Little Demure:
I colored this sweet image with Copics and then used Peppermint taffy twinkling H2O on gown, hair bow and shoes.  I also highlited her hair with oyster Twinkling H2O~~love the effect it gave!! Softened the image by rounding the corners; accenting opposite corners with Studio G flower stems stamp and sponging edges and image border with Tim Holtz tattered rose distress ink.  Her pretty bouquet is brought to life with flower soft.  Card base and matting is SU razzelberry paper and the DP is BG Eva Collection.  Used MS heart border punch and then used the hearts as accents on the card :)) Ribbon is from my stash and trim is MM Sabrina.  Sentiment made with SU punches and WOJ stamp.  Flowers were gifts from my daughter--Kim~~thanks Hun!!  Added Stardust Stickles to bling up the hearts and flowers and finished with a few pearls. 
Now some close ups:

Close up to show the shimmer of Twinkling H2O's especially on gown and in hair!!

Hope you enjoyed and Easter Blessings to One and All!!
