Antique Bride

Hi! Today I am sharing with you my second card as a guest designer at Creative Stamp Friends. This week's challenge is to create something that is Old Fashioned or Antique.  The image I used is an Elisabeth Bell stamp from Elphine House called Kathy Bride And Little Kitty. 

The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Deconstructed Sketches.  I began with a dusty
rose base.  I added pearl day patterned paper.  It looks a little darker in this photo than it actually is. It's more of a light cream color. Down the center of the card I added a strip of the pearl day patterned paper that I had backed in dusty rose card stock. I stamped the image onto white card stock and colored it using crayola and prisma color pencils and then backed it in dusty rose card stock and then in  the pearl day patterned paper and then again in the dusty rose card stock. I punched the bottom of the dusty rose using an eyelet lace border punch.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and then backed it in dusty rose card stock, then in pearl day patterned paper, and then again in dusty rose.  I added a rose pearl to both sides of the sentiment and then 3 more on the upper corner of the image.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
