Bellariffic Friday - Paper Piercing

I had to consult with Danabella on this card.  You know, only an "r" separates piercing from piecing :) and I wanted to be sure I got the challenge correct!

A friend asked me to make a wedding card and the bride's colours were purple and green.  I stamped Sposabella in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with copics (sorry, I forgot to take a photo of the copics but I used E000, E00, E11 and E35) and just did a very pale wash of SU Elegant Eggplant with my aquapainter on her dress.  I used the Textile Texture embossing folder which I LOVE for wedding cards.  I added some glitter because all wedding gowns sparkle, a couple of prima flowers with a rhinestone brad and then the fun bit....paper pieRcing around the scallop oval nestie and the whole card!  I finished it off with a light spritz of Marshmallow Glimmer Mist which gives it just a subtle sparkle.  I hope the bride likes it!

I am so not a purple fan but I really like the way it looks with the simply shaded wedding dress here. And I always forget that to pieRce scallops and it's amazing that something so little can do so much! Love how it dresses up your card!

Very classy Leslie.
I just made some purple themed thank you cards for my neighbor's daughter's shower. That was her bridesmaid color. Anna
