Dream Come True

Here's my card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I have several....okay tons of stamp that would be perfect for this sketch but I haven't been playing with my House-Mouse stamps and I know for sure that Amanda and Mudpie would like to play along.

Aren't they adorable? Image is from House-Mouse Design called Playing Dress Up. I don't have any wedding cards and not that I needed it but it would be nice to add to my collection just in case the occasion comes along. You can't tell on the picture but Amanda's wedding dress is all sparkly, it's water colored using Pearlescent watercolor.

The base of the card is a Whisper White card stock measured 7" x 8 1/2" folded in half. The background was run through Cuttlebug with Textile embossing folder. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Cute Converse set and was stamped on Whisper White card stock and layered it with Real Red and Basic Black card stock and finished the card with red velvet ribbon.
