Blushing Bride

Several months ago I saved a picture to my computer of a really cute punch art bride.  The recent challenge on late night stampers has encouraged me to try my hand at creating one of my own.  I cased this pretty little lady from Samantha Parisi.  She is created completely out of current SU! punches.  Blushing BrideThe bouquet was  made using the Boho Blossoms punch.  With each flower I cut a slit between two petals to the center and then using adhesive overlapped the two petals to make a cone shape.  The leaves were all made from the largest flower in the punch cut into pieces.

She was so pretty I had a hard time turning her into a card.  Everything I did seemed to take away from her and since she was the bride I wanted her front and center. 

Paper: Shimmery White (dress and shoes), Whisper White (collar), Blush Blossom, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Vellum Cardstock, Brushed Silver
