Wedding on the Brain...

"Wedding on the Brain..." is the perfect definition of my life right now! As many of you know, my oldest son Josh is getting married the last weekend in September. Since life is so busy (isn't it for all of us?) I am featuring an "oldie, but goodie" today--with a wedding theme of course! I picture this dress on one of the guests, or maybe even a bridesmaid!

I originally made this card for Splitcoaststamper's Fan Club Interactive Gallery, which you can find on the Main Gallery page here. It is sooo much fun to play along with the Dirty Girls and their current gallery theme!

On to the design. I began with Gina K.s "Retro Boutique" and stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx ink onto Basic Grey Scarlett Letter paper. I then added a bit of Spica Glitter pen for bling.

My base card stocks are Stampin' Up Metallics in Copper and Gold, layered with two top panels of BG Scarlett Letter dp. I stamped the dress/hanger image onto the top dp layer, then paper pieced the cut out dress onto the hanger. Dimensional tape is applied between the two dp layers, to provide some dimension (kind of hard to see in this photo).

An unknown sentiment from my stash finishes off this glimmering design. Hope you like it!

I will be uploading something new for Just Rite's Blog Hop this coming Thursday. This hop is going to be major fun and inspiration, with two days of paper artistry! Be sure to check back then!

Have a great week!

Some of my favorite designer paper. I love how you matched it with the metallics. The quote is just perfect for the dress image. Very elegant, but sweet, too! Thanks for bringing out this oldie gem during your very busy time.
