Bloggers Challenge and a Wedding Wish


This week's Bloggers Challenge is a great sketch challenge provided by Lisa. I decided to use the Make It Monday Challenge theme at Kraft Journal which is Something Borrowed or Something Blue. As you can see, I went with the blue and with the whole theme which reminded me of a wedding. All of the die cuts are from Spellbinders. The background panel is embossed using a Tim Holtz texture fade. The image and sentiment are from Heartfelt Creations. The embellishments are Jeweled Inspirations from Creative Inspirations Paints. The final touch was to use Rock Candy Stickles on the raised part of the embossing and on the blue lacey edges of the die cuts. There really is an elegant sparkle to the card.
