Fairytales do come true

Hello crafty friends,

I must have been channeling someone else while making this card, because 1)  it's a white card and I don't do white cards... I wouldn't call myself a messy crafter, but I have a problem keeping whites, white.   2)  yellow is the main color and I'm not a fan of yellow.

So how did card, which I'm inexplicably in love w/come together?  Well, I started by stamping my bride directly onto my card base.  I gave her dress a pale blue color wash and her hair and flowers a yellow color wash.  I also stamped the "once in a while" sentiment directly on my card base.

Next I die cut the Diva Crown - Whisper die from gold card stock and arranged it on the card base so that is framed the sentiment.  I added some pearls, small white flower and three bigger white flowers that I first color washed w/yellow distressed ink (same ink I used on the stamped hair and flowers).  My final step was adding Stickles to all the yellow color washed items.

After having played with the Diva Crown - Whisper die I'm happily surprised at how versatile this die is.  I have used it as a border die on a previously posted tag project. As a focal point crown die on this card and I have plans to use it as a set of parentheses on a future layout.  I love dies that I can use in more than one way, because I get more product for my money :)

Until next time...

    1. Thanks Penny. I love when I have products on hand that just come together almost as if they were made for each other :)
