Bride-to be with Cuttlebug Cuties- Sweetheart Rebecca

Hello everyone,

We had a quiet Saturday, it's still chilly here. My kids rode their bikes which was very exciting since they haven't done that since October.  I too soaked up some Vitamin D walking my dog, he is loving the warmer weather. He was not a fan of walking in the snow, not sure he ever did before. We rescued him in August 2012 and it seems like he was trained on a doggie mat, it took forever to house train him, we still have a few accidents now and then but overall he is doing much better.

This week I had a card request for a bridal shower so I immediately looked at my stamps/digis and remembered I had a wedding girl from Cuttlebug Cuties , called Sweetheart Rebecca, that would be perfect for it, check it out:

I decided to use the wedding invitation as inspiration, silver and pale lavender. I paper pieced her dress, here is a closer look at the dress and the copic coloring:

 I typed up the sentiment on word:

I added lots of white/silver/lavender pearls, I think it makes the card look very elegant. I also used 3 different dies and a corner punch. I  added some shine using silver chalk around the image, it's tough to see here but up close it's really shiny..LOL!!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Forever Friends, #16 paper piecing
Totally Gorjuss, #178 anything goes with sparkle
Catch the Bug, April anything goes
2 Sisters, anythng goes

Thanks for stopping by,
love & create ...with a smile :)
