A New Wedding Card

Here is another card I made today, this time using a
wedding stamp that I bought in a craft shop in Barcelona.
I embossed white paper with the Cuttlebug embossing folder
Swiss Dots and used my Scor-Buddy to emboss a couple of
lines around the white paper (still getting used to using the S-B). 
I stamped the 'happy couple' onto white paper and then used my
Nestabilities Scalloped Circle around the image. I then went
around the edges with ink. I paper pierced part of the bride's
dress and then cut out three hearts in the same colour as the dress,
using the same colour to stamp a compliment.  I added lace the
length of the card behind the image.

CDAC Progressive Challenge #3

Came back yesterday from a few days in Barcelona - great city
to visit.  Did a lot of sightseeing that at the end of each day I
could hardly walk!  Had an overnight flight back home to
Israel, and that of course, meant I would be tired all of
yesterday. At least last night I made up for it by sleeping
over ten hours.  Couldn't wait to get back to my crafting.

The image I chose for the challenge  is called 'Swallowtail &
Sunflower' by Just Inklined

I am always trying out new things so for this card decided to
see what it would look like by just colouring part of the picture
and then putting the image against a dark background.
I used my Nestabilites Lacey Ovales to cut out the image and then
went around the outer semi circles with ink and put ribbon through
them.  I cut out another butterfly and put it over the original one to
make it 'pop'.  For the background I used a Cuttlebug embossing
folder on black card, I then sandpapered a little and then went
over the card with ink.  The card was finished with Dot Sparkler
Stickers from Stampendous.
