Totally Gorjuss- dt

This is our 40th challenge on totally gorjuss this week, boy time flies.  This week the challenge is to create a "Congratulations" card.  I have had this beautiful bride from WOJ since December and thought i HAVE to use her soon, so i lightly colored the shadows on her wedding dress and her beautiful bouquet and head dress, embossed one of my Nellie Snellen dies onto the front of my card face.

The folded front of this card was made using my scor pal, which i know i dont use often enough.  the pearls that frame my image are 2mm peals, i love them and addeda  few to her neck, giving her a peal necklace for her big day.  I used the basic grey template to lay down the pearl detail on the folded edge of my card also.
I wanted to keep this card clean and simple, because i was quite pleased with the look of these folds for the front of my card.  The patterned paper that you see peeps of aroun the edge of the card is actually stuck in the inside of my card with a window for writing on, sorry i didnt take pics of it, but sure you get the gist.

have a great crafting weekend
