Shimmery, Sparkly Wedding


Today's card is for my stepdaughter and her soon-to-be husband (the wedding is this week!).  As it's an all white card, and I don't DO white (much less all white), what better reason to add shimmer and sparkle?  Creative Inspirations Paints to the rescue!

Of course I had to emboss a base layer because let's face it, that much solid, smooth white would make me run screaming for the hills.  (I can't help it, Kristie and Maureen.)  Heh.

The little birdies were a natural for painting with Winter Frost...

...and the double layer heart-shape twiggy die cut lent itself to some strategic and generous helpings of Resplendence Angel Dust.  Oh my, how it sparkles!

Some teeny, tiny pearls for the eyes and sentiment, and some Jeweled Inspirations (small) on the corners finish things off.

I'll admit that this card didn't take the hours and hours that most of my cards take because of the white, so in that regard, white's pretty cool.  Just don't get too used to seeing it on THIS blog.  That is, unless there are more weddings in my future, and my daughter assures me there aren't.  <sigh>

Thank you for joining me, and don't forget to head over to the Creative Inspirations challenge blog.  The current challenge is Anything Goes!
