The East Wind Bride of May Challenge

It's time for another fabulous challenge at The East Wind and this time our theme is

I have chosen the gorgeous Aurora Daisy for my beautiful bride and used iridescent white and ivory (with a matte gold base) for my card.  The white mat is embossed with a Crafts Too Daisy folder, the sentiment with a small Cuttlebug folder and the die cuts are Spellbinders Lattice Motifs and Lattice Accents.

I've colored Aurora Daisy with Copics and added white and ivory "wedding confetti" flowers and pearls as a headpiece.  I think she makes a stunning bride, don't you?

Here's the dimensional shot.  Most of the layers as well as the die cuts were popped with foam.  The gorgeous pearl swirl is Prima and it was cut apart and trimmed to surround the image.  You'll be amazed at the number of different images my DT sisters have used for this challenge.  Be sure to visit them HERE.  We're so looking forward to your take on our "Bride of may" challenge.  Hope to see you soon.
