Wedding Bells ...

Hello Friends!
Time for another inspiration creation for the Dies R Us Inspiration blog and today I have a Wedding creation to share.  June is right around the corner and we all know that is the most popular wedding month in the year.  As a matter of fact, I have a June 22nd wedding to attend and I do believe THIS will be the card I'll be using for that occasion!

Sorry about the photo quality ... just as I was about to take this photo, one of the bulbs burned out in my tent lights and I didn't have a replacement.  In fact, I couldn't even get the old bulb out ... sounds like a job for hubby!  
Dies purchased from our Dies R Us store that were used on today's creation are:

Marianne LR0300 border edge die.  
This and other European company dies are offered from time to time as a pre-order special sale at our store.  Be watching for those special sale times as they are not companies carried on a routine basis.


This bell doily is so pretty and can be used not only for weddings but I think would be beautiful as a Christmas card creation all done up in red and green!

I recently obtained this pretty DCWV 'The Glitzy Pastels Stack' which worked perfectly with these ornate dies.  So even though I was thinking of doing this card in gold & white and had already inked the bells in gold, I die cut the center bells out again in the blue glitz paper and popped them up over the original bells on the doily. SO happy with the outcome.

You could add so much more to this card if your bride likes a lot of 'fluff' ... but my bride is a pretty 'simplistic' gal so this will be perfect for her.  I think this Cheery Lynn Designs flourish is so simple yet so elegant and pretty. I used a shiny gold metallic paper for today's flourish.  The pretty gold edged white organza ribbon added the perfect finishing touch.  I used my Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool for the bow... easy and perfect every time.
