The Bride is waiting

The Bride

This card I made for a challenge we have at CMC Copic Challenge Group, This is Challenge #18. We need to use a lot of WHITE. I really do not know if I did that but I tried, I’m not a white person so this was some what hard for me. Use the Inspiration Photo below to inspire your project if you'd like but your image should have A LOT of WHITE ON IT with only 1 pop of color!! You can certainly do a white wedding project but it is not required, just make sure there is LOTS OF WHITE! Remember you must shade white with grays, blues or creams!

I love the image I used it is from from Vivian Lau and is called “Doll-Bride”. She has a lot of beautiful ladies. I did use a lot of punches. From the top from Martha Steward is the Iron Gate punch, Garden Trellis punch and the Monarch Butterfly punch.

The flower on the left is called Queen Anne’s Lace and I used punches to make the flower, the mini snowflake for the flowers, white oak punch bunch and the medium Cosmos punch bunch. I put a charm on the card as you can see it is a heart and it says on the charm LOVE. I did punch a lot of things out with Funky Foam it is real cheep and you can get it in so many different colors and they all sparkle so beautiful. The swirls you see their is a die cut from Magnolia. The larger white flowers I punched out with Nellie Snellen punches. I added some gem to the butterfly.

The greens is a Punch Bunch called Mega Rock Fern. I tiny hearts punch is called Corner Decoration Punch it is 3D/5. The Brides flowers I used the mini snowflake and the mini white oak leaf and for the middle I used yellow Spica Glitter Pen. I made a very small ribbon for the flowers.

To be honest I think she turned out beautiful. I did not know what to do for her dress. It was not really fancy so I wanted to add some glamour to her. I always picture a veil as having sparkles and some diamonds her and their. So I did that. Now her dress really needed something. I did not want to put sparkles all over so I thought just by the ruffles and not right to the top and I added some gems, perfect but the top of her dress needed something so I added the same to the top and this is what it turned out to be. I do wish I had not started with the gold pearls but I had and I did not have enough to finish off the hold dress with the gold pearls but then I do not know it I would of liked it.
Thanks for stopping by. I do hope you like my card. It was a hard one.

Oh My Gosh Patricia, You amaze me every single time you post!! I actually LOVE seeing the notification that you posted something, because I know its going to be great! Im absolutely in AWE here and I am stunned at how beautiful your card is.

The image is adorable and every single detail of the card is PERFECT! You really take the time to make sure you have every little detail done beautifully and it turned out as a gorgeous card that any bride would love to receive.

I need to know your secret because everytime I add more than one flower, my cards look silly!

Could you maybe think of doing a tutorial sometime of how you decorate to get the gorgeous embellishments placed? Or maybe some idea of what types of items that you use?
