Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Wedding Hop!

Welcome to Day 1 of the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop!

Wedding bells will soon be ringing as the wedding season is almost here, and the design teams of Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls have teamed up to provide you with some beautiful wedding inspiration by creating projects using Paper Nest Dolls digital stamps! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

Red Carpet Studio is a movie-themed challenge blog that runs weekly challenges, alternating between layout and card challenges each week. All of their challenges are inspired by either a movie or aspect of Hollywood!
The Paper Nest Dolls is a brand new digital/rubber stamp shop that sells adorable stamps inspired by the designer's children. Their stamps are sold here and they just started a challenge blog as well!

For my project today, I made...

This card was made using the digital image called Bride Ellie which was generously provided by The Paper Nest Dolls owner, Christine.  Isn't she pretty?   I used my new scroll embossing folder (Darice) on one of the background papers and and old Fiskars edge punch on the top edge of the blue mat around the image.  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour Ellie and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter (Stampin' Up!) to the edge and waist of her dress.  I used a variety of flowers along the bottom and side which I made darker using Brocade Blue Ink (Stampin' Up!).  The large blue flowers are from Prima, the sheer ones are from Creative Impressions, and the small ones are from Walmart.  The leaves were die cut using my Slice machine and the Basics #3 design card.  The rhinestones and pearls all came from the dollar store.

Hope you all will join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting and keep reading for some info on prizes and the next stop on the blog hop!

The Paper Nest Dolls owner and artist, Christine, is very generously providing us with some blog candy from her online stamp shop and her brick and mortar scrapbooking store! To be eligible to win you must comment on every stop of both days of the hop.
