Pals Paper Arts- Fashion Inspiration Challenge

This week's Pals Paper Arts theme is: Fashion Inspiration: Here Comes the Bride (Anything Wedding: flowers, dresses, invites, place cards, cakes, gifts)

What will you do? I chose to make a wedding card. I previously made a birthday cake card for a friend almost like this using DSP instead of textured card stock. She really liked it. With wedding season coming up (I have one invite for spring, summer and fall already) I needed to have some wedding cards on hand.

This is traditional, but I jazzed it up a bit with the textures and the bling of pearls on top of the softness of teh rosettes. I love it! You could do this in any wedding colors by using color card stock or using marker on your embossing folder for color. Then color your rosettes with marker or ink pads. I've heard that Copic markers color pearls just fine, but I don't own any of those.

What will you come up with? Please join us as we play with Fashion Inspiration at Pals Paper Arts!

Supplies used for this card:
Card Stock: Very Vanilla
Stamps: Tiny Tags
Ink: Basic Black
Extras: Big Shot, Framed Tulips and Perfect Polks Dots embossing folders, Stampin' Dimensionals, Vanilla Rosettes, Basic Pearls

Patti this is gorgeous. LOVE the white on white look and the use of the tulip edge on the cake is genious! LOVE the flower rosettes - one of my favs- and they are a perfect finishing touch with the those adorable pearls! Hugs.
