DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY : WORLD CARDMAKING DAY BLOG HOP CARD

If you have arrived here for the blog hop or would like to join in Digistamps 4 Joy's World Cardmaking Day  Blog Hop, please click HERE.

(you might want to join in the hop as there are 12 prizes to be won!)

This easel card features the image I drew for Digistamps 4 Joy called "I Do".

 
I coloured using my alcohol markers, mainly the grey tones.  These were some of the very first ones I bought a little over a year ago and they are still my favourites!

As you can see I added some white gel pen for the highlights and Stickles on the bride's dress.

These are the supplies I used on my card:
cream coloured base card
offwhite textured CS
turquoise CS for the mats
turquoise diecuts of swirls and leaves
patterned CS with bling gems
die to cut out the image
sewn on sequins and beads
metal corner
my own made stickpin
turquoise satin ribbon bow
glass button and pale blue satin ribbon loop (bottom right hand corner of image/diecut)
spray of flowers ... here is a better look at the flowers ...
And here is a close-up of the fabulous sparkly button :

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

FLUTTERBY WEDNESDAYS, 3207, 'ANYTHING GOES' - there is a butterfly on my stickpin
GINGERLOFT, #49, 'STITCHING REAL OR FAUX' - all my sequins and beads are sewn on
THE PAPER PLAYERS, #115, 'TIC-TAC-TOE' - BUTTON-WEDDING-YELLOW & GREY
SUGAR CREEK HOLLOW, #31, 'THINGS WITH WINGS' -there is a butterfly on my stickpin
