Best Wishes to the New Mr & Mrs

This card is for 4 challenges:
1. Splitcoaststampers' TLC361 - Inspired by Beleek Pottery -
negative effect with embossing folders;

2. Pile It On #4 - Add lace;

3. Sentimental Sundays Challenge #86 - die cuts and a sentiment; and

4. Cardabilities Sketch #47.

I used a Darice embossing folder for my negative effect embossing technique on white watercolor paper with barely banana ink and a barely banana card.

The dress is a new die cut I got from Darice, which was cut and then dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The ribbon belt on the dress is highlighted with Diamond Stickles, which is also around the sentiments, which are stamped in gold metallic ink with Petite Pairs sentiments from Stampin' Up. Popped up the sentiments with pop dots and the dress over some white lace.

It was difficult to get good photos today as I usually take them outside on the deck, but it is very blustery outside and I had to take them inside, but hope you like it. It's really pretty in real life, at least I think so...~.~
