Wedding Season

I received my wedding magnolia stamps the other day and finally got around to playing with them.
This is my first attempt with them and I'm very impressed with what I've created.

I have coloured in with Tim Holtz Distress inks (thanks Kellie TPS for the tutorial)
The skin was done with Tattered Rose, Hair with Antique Linen and Brushed Cordory
I wanted a different look to the standard white dress so coloured in using Old Paper for a champagne look and some spun sugar for the second layer, the bridesmaid is done in worn lipstick and spun sugar.
I can't recall the cardstock used.
I have used a stamp it sentiment and the Kaszazz large bride & Groom silhouette, both have been embossed the sentiment in black and the silhouette in Fired Brick Distress emboss
I have added some flower soft to the roses, and used the sand flower soft under their feet.
Frosted lace stickles on the veil and pearls for a beautiful necklace and hairpiece.
Flowers are from my stash and have vanilla smooch added
Another Birthday - In the Garden
I had seen a friend of mine create a card similar and loved it.
It is perfect for its intended recipiant.
I have used the Lovely as a tree stamp set from Stampin Up with Brown Chalk ink
I have distressed the background using Tim Holtz shabby Shutters and Stormy sky.
The happy birthday stamp is a Kaszazz sentiment.
