Showers of Happiness

**Yikes, Blogger has had some issues and deleted this post - so here it is again **

Remember this card?  Well, last weekend I attended a bridal shower for Lindsay and again I stressed about the card.  When you're making a card for a fellow stamper, the pressure is on :)  I knew the image I wanted to use but I just couldn't come up with anything until Cath came to the rescue!  Click here to see the beautiful card she made.  It couldn't have been more perfect - it was exactly the image I was going to use!

Wedding Gown Circle is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I only used four copics.  I went a little crazy with my new Lacey Circle nesties but actually love it as I think it looks like a layered wedding cake! 
I dug out my SU Flourish Textured plate for a soft embossed background and gave it a spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  Of course I had to paper piece the bow on her dress and add some tiny dots of glitter.  A bow with a tiny pearl heart finished it off.  I was really happy with the end result and Lindsay loved it too.  Thanks again Cath - couldn't have done it without you! :)

I agree with Ebru!! This is absolutely stunning - it looks like tiers from the cake!! And look at you using your glimmer mist

I've finally made my way back here now that Blogger is working again....girlfriend this card ROCKS! It's way better than mine but I'm glad you found a starting point and ran with it. You're right, the layers of circles do remind me of a wedding cake - you crafty thing you!
