Classy Cards Best Wishes

Hello!  My sister was recently engaged and this is the card I created for her.  The Cheery Lynn Doily die is new and the rest is vintage-looking and blue.  There's nothing borrowed though.  :)

The Authentique Favorite paper coordinated well with a gray 5.5" square card and I added a piece of white card stock in between.  I distressed the edges of both the designer paper and white card stock and then used Joy Foam pads to pop the Authentique paper higher for dimension.

I cut the Cheery Lynn Notre Dame Doily and glued it to the right side of the card.  Then I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Stamp with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the image with a sparkly silver embossing powder from my stash.  I cut the flowers with the matching Arianna Blooms die, colored the petals with distress ink and Mini Ink Blending Tool, and then molded the blooms with my Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Molding Mat.

The white blossoms were cut with the centers of the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die.  I glued them together and added blue rhinestones.  I glued a big silver rhinestone to the center of the large bloom too.

I cut the Cheery Lynn Best Wishes die, colored it with pumice stone, peacock feathers and tumbled glass distress ink and then added sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen.

I arranged the flowers, adhered them with Joy Foam Pads and tucked in a few Cheery Lynn Mini Flourishes. I added the satin bow and gray pearls to finish it off.
