Black & White Wedding

Hello Everyone!  
I hope you had a wonderful July 4th weekend!

Today I'm thrilled to tell you that back in March I had THIS creation chosen as a
Spotlight Winner at the Crafting by Design Blog and they have
asked me to be a Guest Designer for them.

Thanks so much Crafting by Design for the honor!

Their challenge them this week is


I hope you'll come play along ... I love the elegant look of
a black and white creation so I decided to make
mine a wedding card ... hope you like it!

I love making homemade flowers but don't always have the time
to ... but today I knew I wanted a cluster of flowers for this creation so
spent some quiet time die cutting, conditions, squeezing, spraying, folding ... lol
yep that's how I make flowers!

I also like to shape my leaves by simply placing your
reverse tweezers down the center and cupping the edges up around.
It's amazing what a difference it makes vs just a flat leaf.

I have used Diamond Stickles on the flower centers and on the Doves.
Every wedding card needs a touch of sparkle I think.
