ADFD: Challenge #45 - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue


Blue you say?  That appears to be a shade of fuchsia.  (Pink Passion actually.)  But there ARE blue highlights on her dress, made using Copic marker BG10 - Cool Shadow. See:


I know it's a stretch, but I really wanted to play along with the A Day For Daisies' current challenge and the person who requested the card asked for the color scheme to match the actual colors of the wedding she was attending.  That meant I had black, silver, and fuchsia to work with.  I hope the marker shading counts, but if not I still had fun making the card!

Here is how I met the requirements for Challenge #45 - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue:
Old - Cuttlebug embossing folder, silver and pink card stock, flowers, Fleur de Lis and Rectangle Fleur de Lis Spellbinders dies
New - You May Kiss the Bride image (ADFD)
Borrowed - My creation is based on this card.  I "borrowed" her idea for the layout.  Otherwise known as a "scraplift"!
Blue - We've already discussed this one!  ;) Copic BG10 - Cool Shadow Sketch Marker

The gorgeous ADFD image is colored with Copics, and I've added some Stampin' Up Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the bride's veil. The organdy trim is from Tim Holtz.

I am a huge fan of Tammy and her art so I was happy to have a reason to use one of her images!  I hope you have enjoyed my project.  It's too hot here to be typing a long post (even with all 3 ACs cranked to the max! Welcome summer!), and I still have more crafting to do.  I'm off now to plan a 50th birthday card for a co-worker to give her sister this weekend....  I'll be blogging more creations this week so I hope to see you again soon!

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Crafts and Me: #89-Anything Goes
- My Time To Craft: #182-Weddings 
- Divas By Design: #40- To "Die" For (use die cuts)
