This card took a lot of thought as it was for my nieces wedding...i thought about what i wanted to do then i adapted files that i had to make the 'lace' for the dress. Firstly i cut out a long dress shape on my silhouette and a bodice seperately..then i used a cupcake wrapper for the lace and just made it larger and fit the 'dress' i used some organza ribbon as the underskirt and hey presto!!

I had such fun making these cards. They were  my very 1st grunge cards and i loved playing with the ink...i used a tim holtz walnut and sepia tones ...the flower was very easy it was just a strip of paper with snips in the edges and rolled up then squashed out ...The toppers were in my stash and the newspaper was a free file from silhouette ...

This is the first scrapbook page i did..It is my daughter nicky and was done in craft artist...i thought the original photo was lovely and deserved to be glamoured up.i hope she thinks i did it justice...i loved the feathers and the fact that you could put a shadow on the page to make it look 3d. i am biased because i think she is beautiful xx

please be patient
