Wedding Wishes

I refrained from making another Valentine's Day card and made a wedding card instead! Very clean and simple but this embossing folder gives it an elegant look I think. When I first spied this folder at Hobby Lobby I kept thinking - "Um...will I even ever use it or am I just buying it because it's on sale"! I've used it ALOT! Certain images just fit perfect in it and I really like it.

This image is from the Blissful Bride stamp set from SU. I added some of the tiny little pearls to the bow on the dress and then added some of the larger ones below the image. The organza ribbon is actually blue but looks more of an aqua color in the photo.

I'll be entering this in the challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint for the theme, Inspired by Bling. Now some may think that pearls are not actually considered "bling"! But I do. Plus I researched it a little on the old computer and yes....we've got "bling" here folks!!!

Thanks for stopping by..........

this is just gorgeous! Love the colors and you are right that embossing folder makes it look very special. It's funny though, I have looked at that folder many times and it has even made it into my cart a few times, but i always put it back because I can't think of how I would use it. Going to have to look at some of my stamps differently.

So classy, elegant and posh, Lynn. Love the pristine look of it. Your embossing folder fits in so very well. The stamp is so dainty and pretty. The pearls complete the picture. There is so much delicacy and charm - this card almost reminds me of a pretty bridal gown.

Hope you are doing well.

This is stunning & elegant Lynn & I absolutely love it! I remember hunting hight & low all over the internet for that stamp set & be darned if I'm not 'letting it cure' before I use it. But... you've provided some inspiration & I hope mine turns out half as pretty as yours. Great job!
