Back of the Bride

I'm sure I'll have other "back of" characters now that we've started this - but my brain isn't firing on cylinders today so I did the easiest one first.



"Back to the bar" must have been at her bachelorette party, maybe?

Just like the bar chick - but instead of the bar stool, I added layers of 1/2 butterfly punches for the wedding dress.  Emboss the cardstock first, then punch. 

I went a little nuts with the embossing folders but needed the texture to show the white dress and hat on the white card.

Flowers are the retiring flower trio punch - I just had to give it a little attention before the move to the retired punch drawer.

She is so STUNNING!! Just made her Ellen and the photo's never do Punch art any justice. I love her so much!! Can't wait to make her into a card, when I showed my husband it took his breath away - he was so impressed. Thanks heaps.

When I first saw this card, I thought of the red hat ladies and knew it was going to my sis-in-law who turns 50 in a few weeks. She loves purple but denies that she is a day over 29. i will post it on my blog so you can see but not until the end of June. Thanks so much. Sue

Needed a bridal shower card for my friend this Saturday. I just hope she appreciates the time I spent on it! Thanks for sharing!!!
