The Contenders

People go to Vegas to gamble and get married.  For our 10th anniversary we did both.  On our wedding day in 2003, I had a very lightweight, short dress for the beach wedding.  This time I wanted the Cinderella dress.  We found a rental place and I tried on lots of heavy, beaded, fancy and fluffy dresses.  It was fun!  I used the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!, turned on it's side and am also showing it on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge site.

 All the white, both in the dress detail and the butterflies wants to blend together in these photos.  I cut multiple sized butterflies from all the different CTMH Cartridges, then ran them through the Cuttle bug in the embosser folders.  A few of the butterflies are cut from silver glitter paper.There are also bitty pearls scattered among the butterflies.  Glitter paper backs the tear out.
Sneak peak below:

New paper punch coming your way in August!
