Love is in the air

I found this gorgeous image a while ago at The Sherlocks Home(you can find her new store here) and had been waiting for just the right time to create something with it. My darling husband gifted me with the time when he informed me a friend of his was getting married. I got to add some personality to this one and I just love it. Hope they will have many years of wonderfulness.

Basic white card stock is used. Background embossed with Swiss dots then spray with glimmer mist. The border is a MS punch on top of mirror board. Flowers are Prima with an added on from stash. The rings are charms.
What is actually colored, is in copics. The flowers in her hair are so tiny and I wanted them to really pop. What I finally did was a coarse glitter and then colored over that with a copic. The real life effect is amazing. I did the same with her buttons without coloring back over them.
The lace is from stash. I used versamark and Ranger holographic embossing powder. I am so in love with that stuff.
Double hearts, again from stash.

My husband teased about the rings, saying how much he could have saved with this pair. The rascal. They are very pretty though.

the interior on the left is done with a MS all over the page punch, embossed again with the holographic and then I used a white powder around the edges with a TPC Studio Brush Strokes Greetings Stamp. I'm not sure you can actually see it in the photo.
The right side is another MS around the page punch with an embossed then glittered card over it. There is also the matching lace from the dress peeking out.
I'll have to check on the sentiment and then post it later. 

The box is used front the same items as the card. I really had to restrain not to keep adding more to the box.
Here is the front

the closed back

And the interior flap of the opened back.


Of course, in the wonderful winter, there was not enought sun to bling out all the glitter. I do love that stuff :-)

However,  I hope you enjoyed my Love.

Have a great Day!!!
