Wedding Cake anyone?

I'm so excited to be on My Time Made Easy's Pretty Pattern design team.  Today is my first official post as such.  Here it is:

(as always click on image to enlarge)

I used MTME digi stamps on this card.  The ones I used are: So Sentimental and On Display.
I used copics to color the wedding cake and added some little pearls for extra charm.  I used Spellbinders four to cut out the cake image and Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs for the sentiment.  
Here's a close up of the cake image.  I think the hardest part of this card was lining up those little pearls.  They did not come on an adhesive strip but most did have adhesive on the back... but some liked to pop out from my fingers and run around my desk.  hehe!
I used  Linda's Easy Apple Blossoms Tutorial to make the flower.  My flower is larger than hers because I used the largest flower from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I had ordered the fabric (crinoline) from Linda but just yesterday I went to JoAnn's and found out that they have the crinoline in stock.  Their Tulle is also on sale so I stocked up on it too. 

Here is a view of the bow, flower and cake image with a pink paper in the background so you can see the 3-d effect the flower has.  

I used MTME's Wistful Wonder digi paper... I think I just found my newest favorite paper!  The great thing about digi paper is if I run out I can just print up more!  You'll never run out.  

Here is this week's sketch:

I hope you enjoyed your visit and will play along with us at My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns
Thank you for visiting!

Your card is just gorgeous, Nancy! Beautiful colors and textures. I love the way you tied a bow from the crocheted lace! And your crinoline flower is wonderful. I love the pink/gold button center. Isn't it fun to work with? I am having such a ball using it.
Thanks so much for linking to my tutorial.

I'm sure using a baggie to dye your seam binding would work just fine if you have reinkers. There are all kinds of ways of dying the seam binding. I just shared my method and people can tweak it as they wish.

Have a great day!

Hi Nancy, Congrats on this being your first post on the DT! I love that little's so whimsical. A question for you: how does the ink from a printer (when this is a digi image) fare with Copics? I thought it would smear, no? I've never tried it, too afraid!
