The Bride

     I was so intrigued by the latest challenge at AuroraWings where they are asking us to do something in black and white - with or without a pop of color!  I simply had to find one of Mitzi's images which would work in black and white.  Here's what I found.  What do you think?

     I colored with ProMarkers in various shades of deep gray and golden yellows for the flower.  I cut the image with a plain rectangle die (Spellbinders), then punched the corners (Fiskars.)  The dp is cut with another Spellbinders die and I layered the image onto it.

     I dug through my stash of lace and found that perfect, white lace which I added to the card front before adding the image piece.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, adding it to the bottom of the frame.   That's a pretty CAS card, especially for a bridal theme.  :-D

This is just gorgeous, Connie! Love the digi you've chosen for this theme and the placement of the pop of color, right over her heart. Beautiful framing and the lace is a perfect addition. Thanks so much for joining our Color Challenge at Aurora Wings. xxD
