Pistachio Bride, DD65 & RS76

How are all my Happy Stampers today? I feel like the summer is passing me by way too quickly. I was hoping to take my daughter to the beach yesterday as it was supposed to be a nice day, but when I got up it was pouring rain. The weather dude totally missed this one. So what's a girl to do on a rainy day? Stamp, of course!

Mmm, what yummy colors this week at Dynamic Duos! Blushing Bride always makes me think of, well, Blushing Brides. So I decided to use my Love & Laughter Stamp Set and coordinating Wedding Words Wheel Stamp for today's card.

I went in search of a sketch for my project, and did a little happy dance when I found this one at Retro Sketches. Was it perfect, or what?

I love this little dress and while I was making it had visions of an entire bridal party in Pistachio Pudding gowns. The image was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I cut the dress out by hand, then added some Ruffled Ribbon to the bottom. A pearl embellished flower draws attention to the waist. I wanted the stamping on the Blushing Bride layer to be very subtle so as not to take attention away from the dress, so I stamped it in Versamark Ink for some tone on tone action.
