PaperPlay Challenges - Button up!

Hey everyone! Today is my week for PaperPlay Challenges, and this week the new challenge is "button up"! We're being sponsored by the awesome shop Simon Says Stamp!   Now I have a very large order for some wedding cards, so needed to get a few done. So I took some creative liberties with the challenge and counted her dress buttoning up the back. Sure hope it's ok, Sandie!!


I used a beautiful image by Mo Manning at Digital Pencil and colored it with Copic markers. I've seen people using different sized pearls around their images around blog land, and thought that would look pretty cool with a wedding image like this. What do you think?



There's LOTS of Diamond Stickles and all the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The bow is made from May Arts silk ribbon and I put another flower in the center of that. The inside is decorated to match, but I was in too big a hurry and just too tired to get a picture of it. Sorry!



So that's it for me today. Please be sure and visit PaperPlay challenges to see the rest of the fabulous creations by my teamies! Then play along for a chance to win!! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Have a wonderful day! Hugs!
