Funky Fairys Challenge (31)

This week's theme is 'Wedding' and the team want us to try and include 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue'. Here goes then -

Something Old - Bodice Stamp

Something New - Gems

Something Borrowed - Mirri Card (recycled from old greeting card)

Something Blue - Card/Ink/Ribbon/Pearls

I think that's covered all the requirements don't you? The base is blue patterned (hearts) pearl card with the corners rounded. Onto that I placed patterned mirri card that I cut from an old greeting card. I edged this with ribbon and a punched border and on the opposite corners I punched, rounded and added pearl hearts. The sentiment is a digi stamp which I coloured the edges of with a stardust pen and added a couple of pearl hearts. Onto the wedding dress... Using a Brilliance inkpad I stamped the bodice onto pearl card and heat embossed with holographic EP. Having cut it out I then folded a 'tulle favour circle' to make the skirt and taped it to the back of the bodice. I attached it to the card with foam pads (behind the bodice only). Finally I added some irridescent gems to the dress.
