Here Comes The Bride

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my LSS, Simply Scrapbooks.  They are located in Kettering, Ohio.  If you live in or are visiting the area, be sure to stop by and check them out.  Vicki (the owner) and all of her staff are the sweetest group of people you could ever meet.  They're knowledgeable about the products they sell and they go out of their way to help you find exactly what your're looking for.  They can even explain how to use products.  Try finding that kind of service in your "big name" craft stores -- not even gonna happen!

This card was made using Magnolia's Bride and Bridesmaid.  I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with Distress Inks.  I love this technique.  It gives me a break from my prismacolors and gamsol and I love the soft look you can achieve with the distress inks.  I used a lot of glitter on this image.  It really sparkles IRL.  I used Liquid Pearls on her necklace. 




I'm also entering my card in these challenges:
