A whitish Wedding card and Challenge 3 of the cyber stamp!

 The third challenge in the weekend's cyber-stamp on Angela's forum was to design a card inspired by a photo. The picture showed cakes with ribbon, roses, pearls and flowers for a wedding.
Perfect! I have just made a card that features almost all those things.
Jess' Teacher is getting married over the school holidays so together we made this lovely card for her.
 It features the Secret garden flower stamped in Elegant Eggplant and layered onto a couple of crunched Blossom punches. All on naturals white cardstock.
Did you notice the musical notes in the background?
This is a fabulous Specialty paper called... Naturals.
The crumb cake pattern is raised with glossy embossing and the backing paper can be sponged, stamped or brayered with any ink you choose.
For a wedding card I sponged and wiped it over with my white ink pad.
Then cut out an oval from another piece and sponged that in white too.
Well it is a wedding card... white and off white are very shabby chic.
Add some organza ribbon and flower trim, Pearls and another scrunched flower - It all says wedding to me.
 ....And then we had to decorate the inside, so, 
We used a new stampset (with matching Framelits) called "Hearts a flutter" and over stamped it with last season's "Affection collection" stamps.
And then,
we added this pop up wedding dress - tad dah!!!
 The lace dress is fashioned with a piece of lace from the Embellishment Kit,
on the dress dummy from the "Established Elegance" stamp set.
It may be a little over the top but we know Jess' teacher just loved it!
And since she likes a bit of purple we thought it was just right.
