Back In Time

Hi all and welcome to another week of the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week the challenge is a throwback challenge.  YOU get to pick which challenge that we have had previously and play along.  I had fun scrolling through the previous challenges and ended up picking the W is for White challenge 
 there is just something about cards that are mainly white that I love with their layers of texture and beautiful design. 

I have to admit not only was I inspired by the white challenge but Emma has inspired me with her lovely art using Tim Holtz's Runway stamps.  I decided to create a wedding card using the runway stamp as my bride.

I used a layering stencil and multiple stamped images to create a shimmery pattern on the dress and matched it in the background of the card.

I used white embossing paste with the stencils to create the texture and the sentiment and then sprinkled it with a fine crystal glitter. I layered the vellum, doily and coated the white twine with ultra-fine glitter.

I found a few crystal gems in a flourish and cut them out to use as accent pieces on the front.
