For a beautiful bride.........

I've got a wedding card for you today, but this one is just for the bride. I really love this dress! It could easily be a prom dress too. This card is an 8x8 square and the papers are Dovecraft's 'Back to Basics 4'. This paper is a beautiful soft powder blue with cream flowers and vines. I kept the layout simple as I didn't want to detract from the dress. I simply added a punched strip with ribbon and bow across the middle of the card, and topped it with a scalloped oval cut from white pearlised card. I added an oval of patterned paper (again from the pack) to the scalloped oval to make the dress 'pop'. The dress overskirt was cut from white pearlised cardstock, and the underskirt cut from ivory pearlised cardstock. I used the blackout function for the underskirt as I didn't want the holes that were cut into it, although I did cut out the loops on the sash by hand. I embossed the overskirt and adhered it flat to the underskirt. I added pearls around the neck, waist and slit in the skirt and some glittery swirls to the frills on the underskirt.The finished dress was adhered to the oval with foam pads. I added some flowers and die cut fronds to the oval, and a computer-generated sentiment matted onto patterned paper and pearlised cardstock to the opposite side of the oval. A WOC  large pearl adorns the bow and a smattering of pearls completes the card.
