A Non-Bridal... Pretty Post

Hello All!  Just popping in with another Stamping Bella card.  Felt like "making pretty" today but not a wedding or bridal shower card.  I was going for a BFF-Classy-Lady-U-R-Fabulous look - lol.  So, I choose to use Wedding Gown Circle ... in a non-wedding-gown card.

I love the soft colours of green & blue together even though I remember from my childhood days, "blue and green should never been seen"... ring a bell for anyone else - lol? 

Glitter is a MUST for anything under a heading of Pretty... but I'm not sure it has to be plastered on like I did here - haha!  I kind of went to town, but ended up liking the result.  Also added glitter to my MFT royal rose flowers as well. 

To convey the exact message I wanted for my card I used sentiments from 3 different companies and crossed my fingers in the hopes it all came together okay. 

Here's the inside:

Isn't it funny how we used to be told not to put blues and greens together? Yet in nature they are often combined! And they are my favourite colour combination :) Your card came together beautifully and someone is going to be very happy to receive it! Enjoy your day, Carla.

Carla, I think you captured the prettiness on this card. Love all your layers and details, oh and of course the glitter - love glitter - a perfect classy card!

a very pretty card indeed! I particularly like the pale green pearls on the front and that charismatic circle strip die cut on the interior. The back of the dress is sensational.

That is VERY soft and pretty! I've never thought to use that image as a non-wedding - clever! Your bow is fantastic with the two types of ribbon! "Blue and green should never be seen, only in the washing machine"..I think that's how it went! :)
