Something Old Something New...

That is the challenge today on the Stamp Something Challenge Blog. For me, the something new is being a part of the design team for starters! This will be my first card as part of the team. We were to use digi images from the set Here Comes the Bride from My Grafico to create our cards...that is also new to me. I've never worked with digi images before.I started by printing the images I wanted onto Shimmery White card stock. Sticking with the challenge of something old...I used one of my favorite old retired colors - Soft Sky...I thought that was fitting with this theme as "something blue" goes right along with this, right? However, I didn't use anything borrowed tho. LOL The "Mr. & Mrs." phrase came from the Fancy Flexible Phrases set. (retired)

The embossed background is also Shimmery White card stock embossed with my Big Shot and the Flourish Texturz Plate. I wish you could see how sparkly this is in real life...I used a dot of Stickles on each scallop and inside each swirl on the cake. I really would have loved to use rhinestones on the cake but I didn't have any small enough, so I had to settle just using them on the cake stand. The ribbon is White Organza set off with a flower and rhinestone brad from the Pretties kit.

I hope you will play along with this challenge! Thanks for stopping by...now don't forget to check out all the beautiful creations made by the rest of the Stamp Something Team!
