Bridal Bouquet

Brenda's challenge at Stamp TV this week is to use the cover of "Brides" magazine as an inspiration for a card.
The challenge at City Crafter is to create anything wedding related.
I decided to make a card focusing on a bridal bouquet in the colors of pink, green, and ivory. I used the shaving cream technique to create a background of marbleized pinks and greens which I think is quite romantic.This was my first attempt at this and the house has smelled like shaving cream all day. I stamped 3 roses with pink,  covered with versamark, and heat embossed with White Pearls EP for the effect of shiny. Assembled the cut out roses into a bouquet using foam dots and added green stems and satin bow. I completed my card using a sketch from Stamping 411 challenge (see right photo) using mats of green, pink, ivory, and the print paper and added more ribbon. Meant to add pearls to the streamers but forgot. Finished with a sentiment "Best Wishes".
Entered into Artful Inkables Challenge: Use a new technique, go out of your comfort zone, make something completely different than you normally would make.
