Bride's Party

Hi all,

I hope everyone's having a great week so far!  I really can't hold off much longer for Spring - it was getting to be t-shirt weather here in Toronto, and WHAM! We get hit with snow!  What is going on???  Not a very smooth transition...my flowers have no idea whether or not to come out.

Well, let's move onto a happier topic - weddings!  I am playing with this adorable image today - BridalPartyBellas - I {heart} this image!  These girls are such a stylin' party - they are probably a blast!

I put this together using Kraft, Basic Gray, and PTI White CS, as well as some Sassafras Wee Bundle Paper (Sweetly Smitten collection) - I am loving those cheerful flowers!
The Basic Gray was punched with an SU Scallop punch, and the pretty embellishments were done using some Spellbinders Shapeabilities (Parisian Accents, I believe), and I topped them off with some miscellaneous pearls. 
The sentiment is from the SU rub-on Chit Chat pack.

I stamped that awesome group of ladies onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured them in with Copics, as well as some Prismacolor Pencils and OMS for shading and grass.

I added some glitter to the bride's dress for some sparkle - here's a slightly better pic of that :-)
Oh, and her dress and tiara have some Sakura glitter pen on them.

Copics used:
*Skin: E0000, E00, E11, R02
*Bridesmaids' dresses: R0000, R00, R81, R85, R89
*Bride's dress: E41, E43, C1, C3
*Flowers: Y32, Y16
*Hair: blond-Y32, Y35, Y38; brown-E71, E79; black-C5, C7, C9; red-YR00, YR15

P.S. Don't forget the Free-form challenge on Blogabella this week! You have until Thursday night to submit your "anything goes" creation to Emily to be entered in for the Bella Bucks!  But either way, your creation will be posted on the blog!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Very beautiful sistahs. Great job with all of the sparkle on the brides dress. What a fun stamp.

I sympathize with your weather, we are West of the GTA. I couldn't believe I had to brush off snow from my car during lunch on Monday. Yuck - I am snowed out.
