Fussy and Fancy Time

Hello Everyone!
It's time once again for a new challenge over at the 
 Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge
This new challenge is hosted by Gina and the theme she has chosen is

(create using your favorite things)

Our sponsor is Wild Orchid Crafts

Since I enjoy vintage design with layers, flowers, ribbons/lace, sparkle, etc.,
here's what I created for your inspiration today!
Oh yea ... I have a family wedding to attend this month so the timing was perfect!  LOL

The bride has chosen soft pinks/greens and a floral motif 
as your design of choice so I thought I'd stick within those parameters 
for their special wedding card.

For my background I have used the Spellbinder Card Creator 5x7 Enchanted Labels 28
die set.  The larger die was cut using ivory linen card stock then backed
with soft pink card stock.  I felt it was too plain so I rummaged around
in my stash and found a little flower and small leaf stamps
to add a little 'character' to the background.

On the soft pink panel I have simply tied thin pink satin ribbon at the corners 
using 'love knots' then added a touch of liquid pearls here and there. 
Since every wedding card must have sparkle so I added touches of 
Diamond Stickles to the flowers, the corners and on the dress!

The Cheery Lynn Designs 'I DO' bride & groom
were die cut twice ... once in white and once in black card stock
then offset to create the 'shadow' affect.
