Here comes the bride[card] :)

Tonight I finally took the time to make this dress-card for a contest, due on sunday. I'm otherwise veeery good at thinking I'm gonna....just to find out that submission date was yesterday. :P
Template (and contest) from Ziro.

I used a shimmering creme cardstock for the skirt base, cut and folded accordingly. Before attaching the lace border 'petticoat', I inked outside edges lightly with Atlantic inkpad. 

A closeup on the inked edges and lace (the lace is fretted in blue also, it's not ink smudges ;)). The skirt overlay is made of white vellum, stamped in Atlantic and heat embossed in Silver Pearl for that extra shine. 
 Here you can see the different layers. The vellum is attached only under the top of the dress for a softer, more romantic look.

 For the top (wich I btw altered slightly from the template) I got some more lace, a small border of vellum with a string of mini pearls and a heap of Pearl pen-pearls. A creme flatback heart is the icing on the [wedding] cake. ;)

A really fun card to make with all the itty-bitty details, lovely!
