Tying the Knot at Polka Doodles

The current challenge at Polka Doodles is to create a project with a wedding theme in mind.  I made this card for a co-worker.  The picure isn't very good, because I had to take it in a hurry.  But hopefully you get the idea.

I cut the dress from the Cricut Wedding Solutions cartridge.  It had sleeves, but I decided I would leave them off.  I used tacky tape on the bodice and added micro beads.  The top layer of the dress was made from an embossed paper and I added micro beads to the embossed pattern using Crystal Lacquer.  The background is a beautiful embossed vellum that I have had for ages and I used a cream and gold ribbon on each side to frame the dress.  The flowers are actually table confetti that have been dressed up with some gold brads.  They actually have a wonderfuly pearly sheen to them.

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"
