A Special Day

Hello! Happy Thursday! I hope the weather is as nice where you are as it is here in New England. It hasn't gotten "HOT" yet but it is coming.  It beats all the rain we have had the past few days. This is a card I have made for a friend who is getting married in July. When I saw a picture of her dress it looked almost identical to this dress so I knew I had to use this Saturated Canary digi for their card. It is hard to see in the picture but I found these beautiful pearl flowers at Michaels to add a bit more elegance to the card instead of regular pearls. I love the look of an all white card.

It is hard to see but I added a thin layer of glitter to the dress and the wedding garland die to give them some sparkle.

These are some challenges that fit my card
