All Dressed Up!


Hi everyone,

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary.  I can't believe how fast the time flies!  I decided to put on my best dress for the day  :-)  It feels so nice to be all dolled up!  This card was created using the Spellbinders Decorative Dress Forms and Elegant Post dies.  Once I had everything cut out I stamped the pearl necklace in Early Espresso ink and colored each pearl with a clear Spica pen.  The lace portion of the dress was done in Distress Victorian Velvet.  I used a piece of vintage lace to create a shawl.  The skirt was stamped in Close to Cocoa ink and colored with a variety of pink inks then I used a few Copics.  I applied Shimmerz Paint in Antique Lace, Pink Poinsettia & Burgundy.


Background papers are Close to Cocoa with K&Company Ancestry.com  I added a 4" doily, which was sponged with Brilliance Pearlescent Beige.  The Very Vanilla strip along the bottom is from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent set.


On a double ended tag Beautiful was stamped in Close to Cocoa and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Faux pearls accent the ends and scroll along the left corner.  Prima Marketing Fairytale Roses finish it off.


Tonight I'm making a special dinner for my hubby.  We had hoped to go out, but didn't know what type of weather we were going to end up with.  So this weekend we will treat ourselves.  Have a wonderful evening!  I'll be stopping to visit you.

Congratulations on your 21st anniversary! My husband and I celebrated our 28th in February, and, like you, we can hardly believe how the years have flown. Can it really be close to 3 decades (in your case, over 2) since we said our "I do's." It's a good reminder to cherish every day, because the days turn to years and to decades all too soon.

The card is absolutely stunning. Beautiful job.

Blessings,
Patti
