I started with a blue base card and added a white layer. Then I embossed a blue metallic sheet with Cheery Lynn's Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate. I cut two Cheery Lynn Southern Charm Valance from red card and wove a Norwegian red, white and blue ribbon through them. I printed a sentiment on the computer and spritzed it with Tsukineko Sparkle Sheer Shimmer. The sentiment translates as 'Dear bridal couple congratulations for the day and good luck for the future' I cut it out using Sizzix Scalloped Heart die and inked the edges with VersaMagic Aegean Sea and a touch of Night Sky. The shooting star effect is actually a load of Cheery Lynn Dandelion die cuts arranged behind the heart. I was going to use them to as supporting cast to the rose bouquet but tried one behind the heart and thought 'oh yes!'
Here's a close up of my rose bouquet. Very pleased with these!! This is one of the dies that arrived yesterday, Cheery Lynn Tea Rose Small, and I love it. Once I got the knack, and it didn't take long, I made a little pile of these beauties. I cut them in white and added a hint of Aegean Sea to the petal edges. Got a couple of Cheery Lynn Wheat Heads in there as well.
