McMahon Five Designs-Here comes the Bride

'Tis the season for the Music to start playing, "Here comes the Bride"..............Bride is a digi by a new designer at McMahon Five Designs, aka LS Designs.

  The Bride image is printed on Cryogen White cardstock- which has a shimmer in it. (Cryogen White is also currently on sale at McMahon Five). I colored the image with a very pale Copic Marker. I printed the image a second time and popped up the top portion of the skirt with a dimensional (approx 1/4" under the arm) and then glued down the edges of the skirt- that gives it a subtle dimension.
  I had some netting in my stash, so cut a length ~ 18 inches long x's 1" and wrapped it around my card- tied a bow then added some white flowers. I recently saw a post where the designer made curly cues out of the stems of the flowers, so I took a paint brush handle and made curly cues with them....here is a close up:
 Pearls and a little paper piercing add the final touch to my card- CAS for me, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Such an elegantly simple design, Shelly! Gorgeous! I saw someone doing curly cues the other day, too, and decided to see if I could do some. Mine looked more like grape vine twirls but even so.... ;-D
