WMSC99 - Wedding

I think we've established I am incapable of photographing a white card, so I've just made another white card. When I saw this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch, I had an idea. Their challenges ask us to use a Waltzingmouse image, and where I don't have a lot, I do have a set I bought a while ago and have yet to use. Until now.

Here's the sketch:

I had the idea to use a heart for the circle element, and I'd break out my Waltzingmouse You're Lovely set to initiate the dress. It looks like a prom dress, but I always imagined it as a wedding dress. Here's my card, then I'll explain:

Again with the vellum, I know. I stamped a Hero Arts lace stamp on the vellum and embossed it with white EP. Then I turned it over, stamped the dress, heat-embossed THAT with white EP, then cut it out.

The heart is from the SU Filled With Love set, stamped in Baja Breeze. I colored the one heart with my Poppy Parade marker. Sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Word Up set, also stamped in Baja Breeze. All of that Baja Breeze bizness was because that's the color SU ribbon I used. Matchy-matchy! :) And yes, I know it's crooked. I see that now. Sigh.

Here is a closer shot of the dress:

At the bottom you can kinda see where it's embossed on both sides. Most of those pearls on the dress hide the mini glue dots I remembered to use so the dress stays in place. ;/

I hope to tackle some challenges in between the loads of laundry the rest of the weekend, so I'll be back to share when I have something that doesn't land in the trash! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
