Beautiful Beginnings


I have a layout to share that was submitted at Stuck on U Sketches for their Sketch Challenge.
Here's the sketch:

And this is what I created:
Hubby and I on our wedding day.

Supplies used:
Paper: Colorbok, DCWV
Sheer Ribbon
Paper Heart Doily
String Pearls
Foam self-adhesive Hearts
Vellum Die Cut
Vellum Envelope: Template from Hot Off the Press
Perfect Pearls Mists: Heirloom Gold & Perfect Pearls
Ink: A la mode Pink
Rub on Title Sentiment: Miss Elizabeth's
This stamped image was on an 81/2 x 11 vellum sheet so I cut around the image and adhered it to my page.  A foam heart was added on the larger heart.
The "ribbon" from the vellum image trails down, which is so cool.

The doily was misted and string pearls were added along the edge.  The envelope was traced from a template onto the left over vellum.  The edges were inked and foam hearts were added inside the envelope.
I scrunched ribbon along the bottom of the photos.

Sheer ribbon was knotted around the envelope and string pearls added through the knot.

The rub on is perfect for my page!  Love when I can find just the right sentiment!!  :)

I misted just one spot on the page and added the hearts, which were also misted.

 Here's a look at the left side of my page.

Thanks for stopping by!
