A Right Royal Affair

Whoo hoo I've made my first twisted easel card. They are actually easier than I thought they would be too :) . I wanted to join in with "Crafty Cardmakers" challenge whose theme is "Royal Wedding".
I have not used any design papers on the card and have followed through with a Red, White and Blue theme.

Attention To Detail:

The image is "First Dance" by Sugar Nellie and has been coloured with my promarkers: Navy Blue, Midnight Blue, Crimson Red, Black, Cool grey5, Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink and caramel. The brides dress has been dusted with iridescent glitter for lots of sparkle. The sentiment is by "Lili Of The Valley" and the flags are a "magnolia stamp".

I use some of my lovely ribbons to create the flower embellishments, I looped them over a circle of white card and then attached a button to the centre. The ribbon is all from "The Ribbon Girl".

I embossed the white card with my swiss dots embossing folder and used red card for matting and layering. The image was cut with my classic square nesties and the sentiment with my classic rectangle nesties.


I am also going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Ribbon Girl - colour challenge #7 Red, White and Blue.
Crafts and Me - challenge #30 Ribbon.
